After a few weeks off from Rock choir we needed a quick get together before the new term. We opted for a visit to this lovely tearoom in Findern Derbyshire called Mad Hatters.
Now I have written post before which you can read here......
a-tea-party-with-the-mad-hatter.html and it was so nice to return again. I had a gluten free panini with tomato, mozzarella and pesto plus salad which was so tasty. A brew of course and a natter at the hatter with great company.
There is so much coming up within the Rock Choir world we had some organising to do and coaches to book for forthcoming events. You see we don't just turn up and sing, there is important events we take part in too so keep your eyes peeled for us, we are everywhere!!!
For now though we were just sipping tea and having a chat. It was so good to see everyone. We do keep in touch via various social media places but there is nothing like getting together and having a good old laugh.
If you do feel a bit 'out of sorts' and although you may not feel like being sociable, just go for it. It does wonders for your mental health and well being. It is good to talk and of course drink loads of tea. Mad Hatters is the perfect place to do it as well. Friendly staff and tasty food.....what more do you need?
Thank you fro reading today, come back for more tomorrow for What to Buy Wednesday, but for now.......
Keep calm, drink tea and take care of yourselves.
Me? I'm sticking with my tea for a brew this week but my boys have had these little delights for Easter. Apart from the little mini chocolate eggs which are an added bonus there is a big chunk of chocolate stuck to a wooden spoon!!
What do we do with that I hear you say? Well you warm up a nice mug of milk and then you dip your big chocolate chunk in your milk and stir it around until it melts into a nice hot chocolate, brilliant eh? My eldest son loved this, in fact we have had to source some more as he thinks it's blooming magic.
Don't do what my youngest son did though, he thought 'oh I can't be bothered with the warming milk thing' so he just ate the chunky chocolate only to discover it was not the milky chocolate he prefers but more of a drinking type chocolate. His verdict was that it was probably best melted in the milk.
These were available from Mum from the Brew's milkman on a little Easter offer but I did find them on Amazon in a pack of 5. There are quite a selection if you search 'drinking chocolate spoons' for example here:
So I will leave that for you to try. If Mr T likes them then they are usually a big hit. I'm not a big fan of hot chocolate myself so I'll stick to my tea brew.
I will catch you for more tomorrow with another What to Buy Wednesday but for now you take care.
Now I know I have reviewed some cold infusing teabags from Twinings before but Tetley do some too. I'm sure in the grand scale of this type of product that they are very similar and do the same job but Tetley have a range of different flavours.
I have tried the mint, lemon and cucumber flavour and have to say it really is nice, very refreshing with ice and I can see me drinking quite a bit of this when the weather gets warm. Well I might drink it anytime really because it is just so blooming nice.
There is no caffeine, no sugar or artificial sweetener in this so it's free from rubbishy stuff and loads of calories. I think these are great to just pop in your bottle if you're on the go, they just make a change from plain water. So give them a little try and see what you think.
They are available from all major supermarkets, I got mine from Morrison's and come in these four tasty flavours:
Raspberry and Cranberry
Orange and Peach
Passion Fruit and Mango and
Mint Lemon and Cucumber
My new summer drink I think and anything is good if it keeps you hydrated but there is nothing like a good glass of Tetley tea.
Thank you for reading today, I will be back tomorrow for What to Buy Wednesday but for now......
Everything tea related, from teashops, teabags, teapots, teacups, tea bags or loose leaf tea, and of course the all important tea chat..
