Phin and I went to afternoon tea at Lisa's Tea Treasures in Campbell because I wanted to thank her for helping me with my 5k training. I truly had zero confidence in being able to jog/walk the race, but with her support, encouragement and patience, I know I'll be able to do the race without passing out and putting myself in the hospital.
Tea is such a fun treat. It's decadent. The food seems so miniature that it seems like you're not really eating a lot. Not the case at Lisa's. Already on the table before you're seated is a little bowl of lemon curd and a cookie jar full of ginger snaps. Then comes a big pot of tea for each person and a plate full of tea sandwiches and scones. Finally you get a selection from the dessert tray.
It's definitely something reserved for special occasions, the food is so rich and comforting. But it's such a nice way to spend the afternoon with a girlfriend.
