|Sharing a cup of tea with Stephanie Suszek, Adult Programs Director|
This past Thursday, Barb's Tea Service presented "Tea History and Etiquette" inside the Old Troy Church at the Troy Historic Village to a wonderful group of attendees. We were delighted to meet new friends as well as see so many familiar faces.

|Mary Ann and co. recognize the Althorpe tea caddy|
The ladies in the front row, including Mary Ann H., immediately recognized my reproduction tea caddy from the Althorpe collection, home decor inspired by furnishings of the Spencer estate. Mary Ann and company also attended the afternoon tea at Scott Shuptrine two years ago when Lord Spencer paid a visit to Royal Oak. I interviewed Lord Spencer and also Mary Ann for the Examiner. (See also . . . Tea with Lord Spencer). Great to reconnect with these lovely ladies as well as Kathy B. who was in attendance and had invited me to speak at one of her church's Tranquil Teas back in 2010.
|Guests share a bit of tea currency from her own collection|
We also raffled off two of our "Michigan Tea Rooms" books and were thrilled to sell and autograph several more to the event attendees.
