A Spring Tea


I am having friends for tea.

Here in Quebec, 
Spring time is "maple sugar time".
Sap is collected from the maple trees
and maple syrup is made. Cold freezing nights and warmer days are a factor in the sap running.
Approx. 80% of the world's maple syrup production is made here in Quebec. 


It's time to taste all the sweet goodness
in our maple sugar products.

Today, I am serving yogurt tea biscuits. with homemade pure maple butter/cream.
This is the first time I made this delectable butter/cream.
A tedious chore, well worth the effort.

Which pretty yellow teacup would you choose?

Maple Syrup

The teapot is Gibson and Sons,
 Windsor Art Ware, Burslem, England.
I paid $2. at a church sale for it. (brand new)
All the teacups are bone china from England
 The teacup below is Elizabethan by Taylor and Kent, 


Royal Albert  4396
H and K - Tunstall
Grosvenor  B164






 The empty syrup makes a great napkin holder.
I use this year around in my kitchen and
on my patio in the summer.
