A Spot of Tea

Shall we have a spot of tea? Paula has created this beautiful vignette with a child sized wicker set and a children's tea set. Cute little bunnies sit in the chairs, seemingly conversing over gentle things. It's such a calming and serene scene.

Maybe they are sipping on chamomile tea just like Peter Rabbit. Here's a variation on Peter Rabbit's chamomile that I hope you enjoy:

Peter Rabbit Tea

1 part chamomile flowers
1/4 cup soy milk
Maple syrup to sweeten*

Place chamomile flowers in teapot and pour 1 - 2 cups boiling water over it and allow to steep for 15 - 20 minutes. Strain, then add soy milk and maple syrup. Place in your favorite teacup and enjoy in a quiet place.

*May substitute honey

    I love the Peter Rabbit stories. I don't think they're just for children.
