A Cream Tea

"The tea party supposes neither appetite nor thirst, and has no object but distraction, no basis but delicate enjoyment."

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

"When one has tea. . .one will have many friends."

Chinese Proverb

"Do you want sugar, milk, or juicy gossip, with your tea."

Aaron Bacall
