I STILL LOVE NEW YORK!
i had one of the best times of my life today in NYC.. met with my longtime, most favorite friends- LAUREN PINE & BUCK for TEA @ my fave tearoom in NYC- LADY MENDL'S!
it was a living tea dream come true~ a 5 course tea starting with spinich artichoke tarte, a selection of finger sandwiches, scones & preserves, followed by chocolate & white cake for desert... and then shortbread cookies & chocolate covered strawberries.
i chose an assam tea, ( aka the strong one) while lauren & buck were tickled pink with their lady mendl's house choice. our tea guest- DOUG MCCLEMONT had the oolong. it was a very special tea, with a very special group of friends. life doesn't get any better.
