dear teatime

Scottish Teatime “The July/August 2018 edition of TeaTime magazine featured an article on The Willow Tea Rooms in Glasgow, Scotland. I recently visited Glasgow, and I was privileged to enjoy tea at the newly restored Mackintosh at the Willow Tea Room located at 217 Sauchiehall Street.

blend your own unique holiday tea

There is something magical about the combined aromas of cinnamon, citrus, and cloves that sparks memories of holidays past. Years ago, I blended a tea with all these ingredients, and during a sampling session, one staff member took a sniff from the cup and exclaimed “That’s Christmas in a cup!” Voilà!
