Old Friend's Tea @ Podunk

Podunk, my favorite tea room in the city, has all sorts of crafty names for their various set teas. The classic British tea, complete with cucumber sandwiches, scones, and a sewing of the various sweets of the day is entitled "Old Friend's Tea". On a recent visit with a friend, Elspeth explained to me the logic behind the title. Originally, her menu didn't have the British sampler, but people kept asking for it, so Elspeth decided she would pay homage to our British neighbors and add the set to the menu, hence our "Old Friends" (the Brits) tea!

I enjoyed this lovely afternoon tea with a pot of Ceylon, simple and robust!
