Dragonfly Tea room


 
 
Christmas with the family and then the next day tea with the girls!!!
 


My spunky niece!!!  She has a little Kerrie in her!!!

This shop in Canal Fulton sells a lot of cute tea items.  I have purchased their loose leaf tea here too.


 
It was all decorated for Christmas.  It was beautiful!!!!  I love coming here for special events.  I say that and yes, it is only my third time here...but they have all been special :)

We ordered this garden tea, it was so fun!!! It makes me laugh when people say "High Tea".  I believe High Tea was around 4 or 5pm and you were served more hardy/meaty items.  But, anyway we enjoyed our finger foods!!

My only complaint I have with this tea shop is the way they serve their tea. They put the loose leaf tea in the pot and let it sit on the table.  After my first trip there, I have always asked for two pots. And when I do the staff looks at me like I have two heads.   I let the tea steep and then when the time is up- I pour the tea into the new pot.  I must say that I was the only one who drank the entire pot....everyone else said that their tea was too strong and bitter by the end.  I would think steeping the tea the correct way would be priority one!  But, if you go just nicely explain that you want two pots and they will bring them to you and then you can have a wonderful pot of tea!

My sister pouring her tea into her cup- catching the loose leaves in the strainer.

The tea was great!!!  I love the coconut oolong

Morning tea- Teacup Tuesday


Need my tea before work.  It's Teacup Tuesday, what's in your cup?  Mine is homemade ice tea!!!
 
Love to make tea and drink it all day at work.  I usually drink several cups of tea a day.  What about you?  Cold tea? Hot tea? Sweet tea?  I like iced tea in the summer, but only with a small amount of sugar.  If some add 1 cup for a gallon of tea, I may add 1/3 cup.   Keep drinking your tea!

Tea Book


I treated myself to this fun book!!!  It is fascinating.  I am learning so much about the history of tea, the regions of growth, harvesting of tea and so very much more!!!  If you are looking to expand your knowledge check out this book!!!
