Wizard of Oz Tea!

21 September 2013

Thank God for the lovely institution of afternoon tea!

I just spent the most delightful 3 hours with a dear friend, Laura, at Tranquility Tea Room in Thousand Oaks.  Tranquility Tea Room hosts theme teas throughout the year including an autumn Wizard of Oz tea.


We had previously attended their autumn tea in 2012 for my annual "Giving Thanks for You" celebration and fallen in love with the most delightful Cowardly Lion Spicy Peach Tea so we were optimist for a great afternoon of tea and friendship. 
Giving Thanks for You, 2012
We were not to be disappointed by our visit seated at the Dorothy Gale table (which perfectly complimented my blue Cynthia Rowley dress) by the windows. 

The hostesses poured steaming cups of their signature Spicy Peach Tea. Delicious and just as good as we recalled! Just a dash of milk and you have the most refreshing and flavorful drink without being too potent or bitter.


Each table has a three tier tea stand and the hostesses bring out each tier platter separately when your table is ready which means that the scones are hot and fresh. Delicious! The cream and lemon curd practically melt onto the scones.

When we were finished with the scones, our hostess brought out the platter of sandwiches which included my favorite --  Caramel-Apple Brie with Pecans on Potato (the foremost sandwich in the photo below). I could have happily eaten a tray of just those sandwiches.


Lastly a plate of desserts was delivered. There was a mini spice cupcake with cream cheese frosting, a truffle and mini cheesecake square.  I loved the mini cheesecake square -- perfectly light and refreshing after the heaviness of the scone and sandwiches.

If you are in the Thousand Oaks area, I would highly recommend visiting their tea room for a special girls' day out. You're always sure to have a good time with girlfriends.
