Flat Ruthie Enjoys Tea and Downton Abbey

Today Flat Ruthie went out for tea with us to a new place in town called The Wood n Frog

It was warm and cozy inside and the tea was served in a delightful teapot. I judge the quality of a place by the teapots they use. Tea made in a cup does not warrant a return trip. I chose a Rooibos tea which was very nice. Hubby had a cafe latte and a blueberry sconce which he quickly gobbled up.  Between mouthfuls, he said it was excellent.

We will certainly return to this spot. The wonderful thing is that it is in walking distance from our house.  Now we have seven coffee shops near our home. We could walk to a different one every day of the week if we were so inclined.  We save going out for tea and/or coffee for the weekends though.

Flat Ruthie enjoys going for tea so much I showed her my special camel teapot given to me as a gift from a dear friend when I launched my first book, Amanda in Arabia – the Perfume Flask

Flat Ruthie has been looking over my shoulder as I read a book  called Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey. She has become quite a fan of Downton Abbey and watches it with us every Sunday evening. We can’t wait to see what happens tonight.

Do you have a favourite coffee/tea shop or a special teapot?  Do you enjoy watching Downton Abbey?

Thanks Darlene and her dear Hubby for hosting!  What a lovely time.
