Tea at three…
…for four ^-^
We gathered at Kristy’s apartment one spring-ish afternoon…
Check out all the prep.
I think we all snuck a few savories (how could you not)…
…while setting up the tea station.
We drank teas from Silver Needle Tea Co.…
…white peony, sencha, da hong pao (the group favorite), and a wuyi black.
Here’s Kristy plating…
…we used Mud Australia for all the dishes and teaware (these are the teapots and tea cups).
Kristy’s apartment is pretty much an Instagram dream.
Are you ready to eat? Let’s start with the savories.
Cucumbers, avocado, and herbs on rye (Breads Bakery)
Radishes, cultured butter, and sea salt on sourdough (Breads Bakery)
Egg, ramps, and pea shoots on brioche (Balthazar Bakery)
Ham, cheese, and cornichons on Epi (Maison Kayser). Super random epi fact. All the “ears” for epi baked at NYC Maison Kayer locations on the west side point west. All the ones baked on the east side have “ears” pointing east. And for the Bryant Park location (which is in the center), the ears alternate between east and west. Mind blown o_O
And the scones! Still warm from the oven…
…fig, almonds, and vanilla. Served with Devonshire cream and blackberry jam.
Another pot of tea…
…a little break (all of our clothing was from LIE )…and sweets.
Itty bitty Meyer lemon tarts…
…and the most tender Sicilian pistachio cake (with a bit of rose water…bliss!)
It was a pretty great afternoon.
Till next time ^-^
