I didn't expect to return to the Royal Park Hotel so soon after being there during the Michigan Tea Tour [Sept. 15th], but Linda P. called and asked if I wanted to join her and her hubby there last Wednesday [Nov. 2nd], and I wasn't about to say no.
Mary was there again with her Mighty Leaf tea chest, and we got to choose two teas. We chose Earl Grey [Rocky's favorite] and Pear Caramel black tea for Linda and me. Mary has a new assistant now, but since Wednesday wasn't an unusually busy day she wasn't working while we were there.
You'll notice the table was set with entirely different china than it was when we were there in September. That's because Mary keeps very good records, and she never uses the same china twice for a customer's table. Isn't that amazing? Since blue and white is my favorite china, I was very happy with her choice.
The Afternoon Tea menu was the same as it was when we were there in September, so I didn't take any notes. If you want to read menu details you can go here.

It was a rainy day last Wednesday, so having tea with friends was the perfect way to spend the afternoon.
