Surprisingly, there were only two guests who came to The Whitney for Afternoon Tea on Friday when Valentine's Day was actually celebrated, but we had 18 attendees for Mary Jones' "Aphro-Tea-Siac" tea yesterday at noon, and another 12 guests at 2:00 p.m. Mary Jones is the proprietary tea blender for The Whitney. I don't normally work on Saturdays, but I assisted Mary.
The tea was held in the formal dining room of The Whitney.
Mary shared her love story with the guests, and one of the teas we served was Red Bird, an herbal she blended in his honor.
The guests all seemed to enjoy themselves. We also served Strawberry Carmel Rose black tea. I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the four different food courses.
Suzanne posted her pics on Facebook, so I'm reposting them here.
