Tea is a relaxing social tradition, where friends get together to talk and enjoy each other’s company. Why not invite friends over for tea during Thanksgiving weekend? Many people are in town to see their families, and tea is an easy way to bring people together.
Here are some ideas from THE NIBBLE and The Fitzgerald Hotel Group’s “Fitz to a Tea” November tea service.
Pumpkin Tea. Serve a “Pumpkin Tea” consisting of pumpkin bread, pumpkin cake, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins and pumpkin scones. Have a some cranberry scones or muffins for those who don’t like pumpkin. Serve your favorite black tea, or try the Pumpkin Spice Tea from BigelowTea.com (KOF-K kosher) and Zhena Gypsy Tea (gypsytea.com, organic, Fair Trade and KSA kosher). Dragonwater.com has a caffeine-free (rooibos) pumpkin tea.
Thankful To A Tea. No matter how busy we are, we all can lend a hand—and we all could use one. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, host a “Wish List Tea.” All the participants submit in advance one reasonable request they hope someone else in the group can fulfill. It can be a night of babysitting, a used bicycle, the loan or donation of a black cocktail dress or size 9 red pumps, someone to explain home equity loans, etc.Teas the season to be thankful…and to relax with friends over a good cup of tea.
