“Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea.” ~Henry Fielding

One of the things I like about the tea ritual is that it can be made as simple or elaborate as you wish. Today I decided to fill a teapot with lilacs, pour iced tea with lemon and mint into our crystal wine glasses, cut a couple pieces of banana bread and a tangerine, and head out to the deck. It took about ten minutes to set a pretty table and light a candle. Here are some ideas for you if you’d like to enjoy tea for two with your husband, significant other, or friend.
