Tearoom Travels Revisited II

On Sunday, June 10, 2007, a group of Magnolia & Ivy graduates and their guests attended Vintage Tea in Alpharetta, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta. Brenda Lain, owned this wonderful tearoom and was a fellow Magnolia & Ivy graduate, and her staff served a splendid full afternoon tea. I brought home her cookbook and have tried some of her recipes. Brenda has since sold her tearoom and now has an on-line shop.

Inside the gift area...lots of tea goodies.

Its always a treat for me when I get to visit other tearooms.

It was a time of meeting new people, catching up with old friends and
enjoying the spirit of having tea.

dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."
