Near the end of exam season my housemates and I held a lovely tea party. We had been trying to plan one all semester and during the month of April we finally found a day to host it. With the excitement building and plans unravelling throughout the semester we prepared quite a long menu, but with five chefs in the house we were up to the challenge. Between the five of us we also had a huge assortment of teas, I really wish I had snapped a picture of them all.
I decided to make Sugarplum's Lemon Coolers and they were delicious. I would highly recommend visiting her site and making this recipe. Right now.
Despite some friends still with exams to write and the pouring rain, we had a large number of guests. It was a lovely evening with decadent treats and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Gosh I miss our foodie parties!
