Tea Party Time

On Saturday, 17 October I attended a tea party hosted by the ever-exciteable Jess of Ginger Twist fame and the talented Claire Devine at Pekoe Tea in Stockbridge. The party was to launch the tea hat collection patterns created by Claire which were knit using Jess’s yarn.

The event was a sell-out, and those who paid extra for a pattern and yarn joined together with the virtual world in casting on a tea collection hat. Having enough on my plate at the moment, I chose not to join the knit along. There was still plenty to entertain though. I brought along my current knitting project and settled down to knit with friends. The evening included tea cocktails (as I was driving I was unable to partake in this), a selection of tea and macarons.  We were also given a whistle stop tour in tea education and had the chance to try on the collection of hats. It was a rather an interesting evening in great company.

Time for Tea

Rod has been searching for food and drinks suppliers for work and has uncovered a little gem of a tea shop in Edinburgh called Anteaques.

It’s a little shop selling antiques and teas and there’s a few tables where you can sit in and enjoy a tea or two and a scone.

Haha … see what they did with the name?!!

Anteaques is run by a charming French man named Cedric who is very knowledgeable and passionate about antiques and tea.

There are a huge number of teas to choose from and it’s really quite atmospheric sipping tea amongst so many beautiful curiosities.

People of Edinburgh and visitors to Edinburgh alike, if you like tea then Anteaques has to top your list of places to visit.
