Just about every day the boys and I have either morning or afternoon tea.
My Man too when he's home.
I believe it to be my British upbringing responsible for this?
Whatever the reason, I, excuse me, WE love it!
And almost always, we have a little baked treat alongside.
Today it was mint to go with the fresh ginger & lemon myrtle green tea.
We have had all sorts of combinations:
herbs, loose leaf tea, tea bags, vegetables, fruit, honey.
