Afternoon tea with my best friends

October 3, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about any ritual involving tea. It can be a daily afternoon tea prepared specifically or the reading of tea leaves in a cup. What do you know? What do you imagine? Is your story deep and ponderous or bright and flash? Go where the prompt leads!


I love having afternoon tea, but love it more when shared with a friend. A cosy chitchat over a cuppa and perhaps something to go with it.

We have a very nice cafe/ restaurant here, very aptly called English tea house. They are famous for their afternoon tea platter. Freshly brewed tea, a plate of goodies, both sweet and savory to go with it, and a nice ambiance to boot.

But what I love better than that platter are their scones with jam and clotted cream, in the true British style, served hot from the oven ( or perhaps microwave! )


Word count; 99

I’m a foodie, so this post is all about consuming tea. 😋😛
