Tea Party Tuesday - Top Ten Reasons to Drink Afternoon Tea

Shall we have tea? Do join me this week as we glimpse how tea is served at one of the finest hotels in London - the Lanesborough.

In my books, Jillian Bradley often enjoys this lovely ritual, whether staying at a fine resort such as the Ritz-Carlton in "Murder in Half Moon Bay" or at a lovely London hotel such as the one above in "The Ruby of Siam." 

In my upcoming book "The Long Trip Home," you'll read about afternoon tea being served in the bed and breakfast where Jillian mysteriously finds herself after her wedding. I hope you'll enjoy the story.

Here are ten reasons why I love afternoon tea. If you think of another, please leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you.

Top Ten Reasons to Drink Afternoon Tea

1. Everyone needs an indoor picnic once in a while.
2. There is a need to use lovely dishes on occasion.
3. Tea gives comfort and doesn't demand anything.
4. One only has to think about adding milk or sugar, nothing else.
5. Conversation is typically pleasant.
6. Teatime gives one something to look forward to during the day.
7. Delicious snacks are traditionally consumed.
8. Tea is beneficial to health.
9. One doesn't need to eat much at dinner.
10. Tea can be enjoyed year-round, any day of the week, hot or cold.

Cheers! Thanks for joining me today. I enjoyed our tea together. Hope to see you next week for 
Tea Party Tuesday.
In the meanwhile, Go Jillian and Teddy!
