A Low Tea To Share on Teatime Tuesday

I have learned from Lady Katherine, the host of Teatime Tuesday, that a tea on a coffee table is called a low tea. That is what mine is today. I serve you on my imported rock coffee table. I have used my mini cake plates that I recently made from Dollar Tree items.

The dainty spring teapot  sits on top of a cup.

Napkins are embroidered doilies from my mothers collection.

This basket was used at Easter when I was growing up to hold our colored eggs.

The tea offered is one of my favorite teas: Kalahari Red Tea, Highlands Honey flavor. It is a mild flavored, non caffeine herb tea. And our simple snack is chocolate hazlenut spread on crackers.

I am delighted that you chose to join me for my evening low tea and thank you for the return invite at Lady Katherine Tea Parlor.


  1. How lovely your Spring tea pot in one is! I having so much fun seeing all the different teapots. I love the linens!!! How sweet is your Easter basket with the egg and bird! The chocolate hazelnut crackers spread look great on your mini cake plate. I just love mine too. The have so many uses, I just made too many. lol Thank you so much for joining me for Tea today. You had a lot to show and tell! I love the lamp Too! I never had this tea, fun to see what tea people are drinking! I may have to get out of my comfort zone of my favorite vanilla cream tea. lol
