Every afternoon at half past three, I stop and have a pot of tea. Mostly, at the breakfast room table. And you can't have tea without a sweet treat! And since it is just me, a book is always at hand as well.
The book, Constance Spry's, Come Into the Garden, Cook. I was rereading the chapter on herbs in preparation for my cooking with herb classes last week.
My Johnson Brothers, Indies tea ware. One of two wee pots that are perfect for tea for one -- the other is a blue and white one as well!
The sweet -- almond icebox cookies from Judith Jones cookbook, The Pleasures of Cooking for One.
I like sweets that I can bake off a few at a time -- because I really prefer fresh baked treats. These are handy to have in the fridge for tea time!
