    1. And to you too Kaz! Glad you like the photo, I had my first small tea party of the year in the tea room today so it seemed appropriate! (They had my vintage china and my very best scones!)

    Really nice photos! Great colors and design in the cup. We have an ornate tea set Laurie got from her grandmother. We just have the set in a nice case and never really use it. One reason is because tea cools off too fast in that style of thin-walled, wide-rimmed cups. Since we are at 5000 feet (~1500 meters) above sea level, water comes to a full boil at 202º F instead of 212º like it does at sea level, so our tea starts off 10 degrees cooler and cools off rapidly in a thin walled, wide-rimmed cups.

    1. Sounds like you need to use thermos flasks Timothy! Never thought about the different temperatures and sea level like that! Shame no to use the cups though, I have quite a few in our tea room and the customers get to use whichever they like for their tea, nice for them to still be used!

        We keep coffee and tea in thermoses, and use thick, straight-walled cups to keep liquids hot longer.

      2. I guess my delicate little cups would be really useless then, unless it was for slightly warm iced tea!

    1. But of course Sue! 🙂 Was serving afternoon tea to a group of ladies today so I thought of these photos! I don’t use a silver tray but they do have vintage china and silver tea sets!

      2. Has to be before the visit and not after, as you wouldn’t believe the mess Sue! I think they must throw the scones at each other, my poor old tablecloths are forever in the wash 😀

        Ooh, a scone fight! What an idea, my sister and I used to have pillow fights when we were young – scones would be lighter…. 😳

      4. And much messier – especially given the amount of jam and crème fraiche they put on them! 😀
