Tea Places: Bosie Tea Parlor
Our welcome cocktail was a delicious Apple Berry Bliss Tea-mosa. It was made with prosecco, strawberry puree and an apple and hibiscus tea. This was the first tea cocktail that I've ever had but it is definitely something I want to explore more.
The first course consisted of tea sandwiches. They were simple yet tasty. The three flavors we were offered were egg salad, curried chicken and cucumber with cream cheese and dill.
Next came a course of mini quiches. The Lorraine were my favorite since they had bacon :)
An assortment of decadent desserts followed. My favorite was the Isaphan which was made from rose macaroon, rose butter-cream and lychee topped with the juiciest raspberry I've ever seen.
As if all of that wasn't enough, we were offered a plate of amazing macaroons along with cups of plum oolong and chocolate mint rooibos.
Although the others in attendance were not tea bloggers there was still plenty of talk about my favorite subject. I definitely have to thank Charu from Butterfly Diary for inviting me and Bosie Tea Parlor for being such gracious hosts. I cannot wait to bring my boyfriend here for brunch as Nicky's description of their french toast made my mouth water.
