A modern addition to a classic high tea

So delicious – perfect companion to a summer high tea!

A sweltering weekend in Sydney did have some upsides.. I got the chance to trial a new recipe on a refreshing iced tea. I can’t claim genius for the recipe but I do recommend Delish.Com ‘Lovable Liquids: 28 Summer Cocktails and Drinks’ for some inspiration.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my Shelley, Royal Albert, Tuscan and Paragon – and more than anything I love a black tea with a dash of milk and maybe something sweet on the side. But even the most lovely high tea needs a cool refreshment on a hot summer day. This was a lovely drink and easy drink to make – keeping it PG friendly, brew 3 green tea bags, 1/2 cup fresh mint, 2 tbsp honey, 4 cups of boiling water for 5 minutes or so. Cool, add ice and choose your favourite glass. It was amazing – combined with a pool swim, watermelon, it made the day bearable! And I’ve been in love with this glass drinks dispenser for a while, I’m still debating whether it can match to our high tea china hire – don’t think i’ll get it over the line with the schwester. But if you’re looking for a modern addition to your next high tea or party, PLEASE by this from Crate & Barrel (and Swiss-Miss is a fun blog to keep an eye on too!).

Also enjoyed a lovely stroll around the Wahroonga Fair today and came across a sweet little stall – Sweet Gracie Soy Candles. Natural soy candles set into delicate vintage tea cups. The cups were in good condition and once you’ve burnt the candle down, the cups could be added to your collection. Check out the website – sweetgraciecandles.com.au
Like we updated last week – our blog is going to start being shaped a little more to help inspire and inform. Looking foward to seeing it unfold Kx
