Welcome to my Tea time....

Oh I am so happy to have you join me for tea today....
For me, having a cup of tea anytime of the day is relaxing. I love the first sip the best. Whether by the pot or just a cup at a time, it can be a celebration. So I invite you to celebrate our friendship, not just today, but for  time to come. I offer you White Pomegranate tea, Dragon Oolong tea, Blueberry Pomegranate tea or English Breakfast tea. Please help yourself to a Milano cookie and a piece of See's chocolate. Although I did not bake today, here is a quick and delicious recipe.
Fresh Apple Cake
2 eggs                                   2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup sugar                        1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup oil                             1 cup flour
2 to 3 apples, peeled and sliced....not too thin
Beat eggs well then add the sugar beating again. Add oil then flour and baking powder. Mix the cinnamon with the apples slices and fold into the mixture. It will be thick. Pour into an 8 inch greased and floured pan...bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. I have also made this with peaches and pears. Enjoy. It was a pleasure having you visit come back real soon. I am off now to sample some tea ... maybe with you!
Note: This grand tour party is being hosted by Parsley at Seasons of my Mind. Be sure to stop by here and find out who else is having tea!~

You know what Gracie? I do not care for tea, but the Blueberry pomegranate sounds good. I would definitely eat your chocolates and milano cookies. ;)

Hi Gracie...I will have white pomegranite!

Fiore said...

It sounds so delicious! Only one question: isn't it too hot for a warm tea?

And This Little Pig said...

Oh Dragon Oolong tea sounds divine, and a Milano cookie, thank you.
