Friday Favorite (on Sunday): tea with friends

 Since I moved two years ago, I've been on the hunt for a tea room, so I was delighted when my writing pal Sonia invited me to tea in Tulsa.  She brought her long-time friend Michelle who was visiting from Nashville, and I brought my Ange.

We all met in Tulsa at Dragonmoon Tea Company.  Apparently they have fabulous lunches, but they also serve afternoon tea by reservation. It's so worth it.  That afternoon we had the cozy little house all to ourselves.  Vladimir was our server.

Doesn't his name alone make you want to go?

Vladimir didn't flinch when I asked--in all my pregnant concern--if he would mind heating the deli meat and the chicken salad.  (Somehow I didn't feel like the annoying customer I do now as I write this.)  He simply told me that he understood and his wife had done the same thing. 

See? Wonderful. 

Plus, he shared that he never went to bed the night of the royal wedding. He just stayed up and watched it.  A sweet guy who loves tea and watched the royal wedding? Gotta love him.

The ladies and I enjoyed scrumptious yummies and delicious tea.  My favorite was the Versaille Lavendar Earl Gray.  Ange and Michelle seemed to enjoy the Dragonmoon. I'm not certain which Sonia preferred.  She's quite the tea expert, so I should find out.

Here's a pic of our tea tray.


Here's a pic of one of the adorable cakes.


Although I look ridiculous in this next picture, I wanted to show you my lovely tea companions.

If you're looking for a fun spot to gather with friends--new and old--check out Tulsa's Dragonmoon Tea Room.  If you're in the Tulsa area, give me a call. I'd love to meet you there!

Don't just take my word for it.  Check out this article. And this one.
