Tea cake (that includes a drop of whiskey)

Hello everybody

My name is Karyn and I live in Ireland. I want to share a great family recipe for a delicious cake. Its from my nana's note book where she she had all her little gems written. Its made with a drop of whiskey and served with a cup of tea. I hope you like it.

Back from London

We arrived home last night from our 5 day trip to London. On Saturday we showed up at the Kingsway Hall Hotel (without reservations) and had a nice afternoon tea at a table by the front window. I found out about tea at this hotel on a website listing afternoon tea at a moderate price, which, in this case, was 16 pounds. Just to get an idea why this is considered moderate, a tea at an upscale hotel or similar is usually priced at about 34 or 35 pounds. We were served Twinings tea, bags, not loose, 4 types of finger sandwiches, scones-plain and with raisins, and various sweets. Between us we drank 3 individual pots of tea and ate everything on the 3-tiered serving dish.

My husband and I are heading to London tomorrow. One of the things we almost always find time for when there is afternoon tea. I've done some research and found some places we've not been to. I hope they turn out to be nice experiences, and that we'll want to return to them next year. At the airport on the way home I'll buy some clotted cream to share with friends when I have a tea of my own. I have so many recipes I want to try.

Hello Everyone!

Anytime is Tea Time!!!

My favorite tea is a tea I tried (and bought) at a tea house in Old Town Sacramento, it is Pear White tea. My girls and I loved it.

Green Tea Anyone??

My husband recently had Gallbladder surgery and I bought him a bottle of Arizona Green Tea. It made him feel well in no time and I finally made some homemade Green Tea with honey and he just loves it. I made it decaff so he could have it day or night!

Ginseng Tea Benefits...

I was watching Dr. Oz's program today and He claims Ginseng tea acts like Viagra and this was discovered by the Chinese. I had to google Ginseng Tea benefits to see what it said. Seems this tea has many things it helps. Has anyone ever had this tea and did it help them?? I sure would like to know more about actual use of the tea.
