Margaret Thatcher comes to tea.
Margaret Thatcher Tea. What a lovely week! In the Carriagehouse Tea Room, I enjoyed conversations with many visitors from the States and beyond. Besides, a few fellow Brits. Everyone is interested in my story and how I started working with tea. What a great life, making conversation, and drinking tea.
Talking of Brits, I served tea to the ‘Iron Lady’ herself! However, in case you thought I was serious, the lady was an actor. Margaret Thatcher Tea was the theme for the afternoon tea benefiting the Women’s Resource Center. Our gracious hostess has a magnificent penthouse overlooking Sarasota Bay. The tea and food service was on a collection of exquisite china.
Iced Peach Paradise in wine goblets looked beautiful. When the ladies ate sandwiches, our Margaret’s Hope Darjeeling was served. With dessert, I served Goji Green tea. Above all, both teas were very well received. Why do I sound so surprised? All of the loose leaf teas offered at Local Tea Company are delicious!
There followed some discussion about Margaret Thatcher’s time in office. How different it would be if she were in office today.
If I had been invited, I could have told a few home truths about my experiences during her ministry. However, I was there to talk tea, so I did my short presentation about tea and ended with a Thatcher quote…
“If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.”
In conclusion, Sip Locally with your very own Tea Lady at the gardens. Stay Cool.
