Tea and Sympathy

tea and biscuitsDo you ever get home really late at night, and you’re hungry, but you’re too tired to eat an actual meal? The Brits would know what to do. Get yourself a lovely mug of tea and a biscuit, or some toast. It takes exactly one minute to boil a mug of water in the microwave, and just slightly longer to heat up a bun or toast some bread. Tonight I had mint tea with some left over buttermilk biscuits slathered in butter and honey. The carbs give me quick energy to tie up loose ends and get ready for bed. The warm tea soothes my stomach and relaxes my muscles. It really is the perfect late night dinner.

Of course, if you want the real thing Alice’s Tea Cup will serve you two scones with jam and clotted cream and a pot of tea for $10. It’s sort of the perfect spot for brunch with the girls, but get there early. The wait can be a little ridiculous on a Saturday. Tea & Sympathy will satisfy your lust for all things British. I thoroughly enjoyed the Welsh Rarebit and the Shepherd’s Pie. In 2005, I traveled through England with some friends. I can’t say I was crazy about the pub food, but I did enjoy high tea! Little sandwiches and cakes and things. So adorable!

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for
    me on Opera. Superb Blog!
