Tea Time Treat: Southern Chicken Salad

The wonderful folks at Cook’s Companion and More scour the market out there to find just the right cook wares, serving wares, tea wares, and more to make your cooking and dining experiences at home all the more special and memorable.

Our Version of a Lord Grantham of Downton Abbey Tea Time

by Little Yellow Teapot (a tea steeping marvel and occasional contributing author)

And they were sure that Lord Grantham’s tea time would certainly be special. The first step was the tea, and from there all seemed to fall into place.

A Lady Grantham of Downton Abbey Tea Time

We all long for a time of gentility, of refinement, of peace and calm, and a place in which to enjoy a pleasing cup of tea. That goal is embodied in the Lady Grantham Evening Tea from The Republic of Tea. This two-tea set, featuring both Lady and Lord Grantham, is from a local store called Cook’s Companion and More, a place chock full of all sorts of goodies for your inner chef (or even if you just like to dabble in the kitchen). As a tea lover and a bit of a Britophile (but not whole hog, as the saying goes), I was pleased to get this set. The tins themselves in their custom made gift box are quite an item to add to my tea tin collection. They are also great for a wonderful tea time photo such as this one, showcasing the tea amidst an array of genteel items for a relaxing image:

My humans brought these home along with that new tray, which was the perfect way to serve up these cookies and a hot cup of tea to my humans. (I know, I know, they don’t deserve me…TOOOOT!)
