Tea Party Time with Donsuemor and Davidson's!


A while ago I was contacted by Donsuemor Davidson's Teas with a great proposition...
They liked the work I did on Dessert-A-Day so they told me to use their products and
"Have a tea party on us"!
Don't tell me free tea & madelines because it is ON.

The only problem was who to have this tea party with?
I don't have kids. 
And I don't own any stuffed animals (besides the stuffed Chlamydia I got in Microbiology lab but who wants to drink tea and eat cakes with a microbe?)

By the way: His name is Charlie. He makes you itch. lol. 

But I digress...
So who was going to help me scarf down all this yumminess?!
I could only think of one group of people who love tea & cake more than me.
And that's my family. 
We grew up drinking tea. Since I can remember, tomando un tecito (or drinking a little tea) in our household has been a tradition.
But it's not just our tradition.
You see, tea parties happen almost every night in South American households all over the world, but we simply don't call them "tea parties". They are just another meal & yet another excuse to get together with the ones you love.

 I have images of my whole family gathered around the table, hot steaming cup of tea in our hands, eating cakes & sandwiches, chit chatting about the days events & just enjoying each other's company after a long day.
Tomando un tecito.  
It reminds me of simpler days.  
It reminds me that after a long day full of madness, I just need to slow it all down.
It reminds me that I need to get back to some of that.
So I did.
I packed up my Donsuemor Madeline's & Davidson's Teas & hit the road back to Fresno for a little family time, nostalgia, and tecito.
