Tea for Two and Two for Tea
Saturday, October 13, 2007

Dude. I'm seriously addicted to teahouses now. Ever since my good friend Patti, from Georgia, took me to one in her town, I've been trying to find similar teahouses here in SoCal. Well, some of my girlfriends and I checked out this place today, called Sussex Teapot, and it's pretty good. It doesn' t have any of the hats and fur coats that the other place had, not to mention the southern feel to it, but it was still cute and located in a quiet/quaint little area.

The four of us had the Afternoon Cream Tea - which is pretty much a pot of tea, tea sandwiches, and scones with jam and cream. The great part about being four of us, is that we each got a different sandwich, and the lady serving us was nice enough to divide the sandwiches for us. So your tea sandwiches arrive with some chips and salad. The tea I had was vanilla, and it was oh so scrumptious. Sure, I had to pee several times this afternoon from drinking cup after cup, but it was worth it. And the scones... yum! Just the right size and very good with cream/jam. All this for only $13.50 per person. I think that's well worth it.

So anyway, we're gonna try to make this a once a month thing. I swear I'm getting old because when I tell other people I'm going out for tea, they kinda look at me like I'm a freakin loser. And you know what? I really don't care. The girls and I usually do a monthly happy hour after work too, where we bitch about work and kick back a few drinks (well, they do, not me). So this is pretty much the same deal.. but instead of cursing and being loud about our work venting, we're doing it in a more refined way. *smiles*

Does anyone else like having tea parties? And if you're from SoCal, know of any good places?

    My MIL likes going for tea. She hasn't invited me. :(

    But I wouldn't mind going. Maybe not with her... lol. I think it would nice. "I'm going for tea." It just sounds refined and grow up. I don't know, i'm weird.

    I've read about tea houses in magazines lately. You aren't old Daphne, tea houses are getting more and more popular.

    I went to my first tea house in June when I was visiting my sister in Georgia. We went to a great place in Savannah Georgia called....oh crap, I've forgotten the name. I got a great loose tea tin there. Loved it.

    Wendy - I'm totally up for tea time with ya if you ever wanna check it out.

    Isabel - LOL about MIL! Why am I not surprised? You should go with your mom and sis, I think it would be fun.

    Rosie - Ooh, you have a sister in Georgia? I love it there. If I were ever moving out of California, that would be my first choice to move to.

    We should totally have our next SoCal Blog meet up at a tea house! Who's with me? =)

    When we lived in Brooklyn my mother and I used to do the tea house thing at least once a month and just talk about everythign and nothing. I miss those days.

    I love tea! I haven't gone out for an actual teahouse tea experience since I was in Stratford-on-Avon as a teenager.

    I think this is less to do with the teahouses in my area and more to do with the fact that I don't have a local clique of close female friends. :(
