I am a Lady of Simplicity!

Results of Vintage Tea Camelot Tea Sampling is in!

My hubby’s first hot tea, yes the Camelot Tea is really good, we both agreed, the Camelot Tea has a taste of raspberries. Hubby loved his tea with no sugar.
 I took my tea with sugar and loved Vintage’s Tea Camelot Tea.
 My hubby and I both tried Vintage Tea’s Camelot Tea with milk,
 we both preferred the Camelot Tea without milk.

My freshly baked Persimmon Cake, baked in small bunt cake pan.

Please come have tea with me!

I said to hubby! Yes, he did have tea, with me!

Just no pictures allowed! He only agreed, for he loves my persimmon cake!

My hubby had four of the little cups of Camelot Tea!

This has been my best Tea Party

Yet! For this Tea Party was just Hubby and me!

Persimmon cake with icing, placed on a bowl with pine straw rim, upon a piece of pottery.

A couple of gourds I grew this past year and red berries around the pottery.

My sister, Gloria gave me this little set of tea cups and saucers on my 50th Birthday.

I set up the Tea  in our bedroom.
The parrot table cloth was from a pen pal in Australia. The tea pot was bought at a garage sale 15 years ago, with four little round tea cups. One round tea cup got broke. So today I used one round teacup to hold the sugar. This is the first time all of my brown tea cups, saucers and brown tea pot have been used! I tied raffia on the napkins, that hold the flatware.

I use native persimmons, I picked from our Trees, to make the little cakes.  Using an old vintage fruit masher to squeeze out the fruit. You could use the Asian persimmons or the can persimmons.

  1. What a nice tea party with only the best person for a guest! i would love the recipe for your persimmon mini-cakes. I make steamed persimmon cake in a large Bundt pan and would love to try something new. My som picks the wild persimmons and prepares the pulp for me.

  2. I had my eye on some persimmons growing wild but someone or something got them first before the first frost! I was going to make persimmon pudding, persimmon cake sounds wonderful. Do you share the recipe?

  3. Years and years ago, I made cookies with wild persimmons. Delicious, but very time consuming, getting the pulp, because they were so small. Our family loved them. The tea sounds wonderful. J would like it, because of the taste of raspberries.

    Your tea sounds wonderful, Katherine. I think of you often and keep you in my prayers.

  4. there are persommon trees at a local park but I never knew you could eat them LOl but did you know that if you very carefuly & it takes pratice! but when you cut the seed in 1/2 there is a tiny tiny little fork on one side & a spoon on the other, a friend of mine showed me that years ago


  5. Oh nice to have a special tea with your sweetie! I bet your persimmon cakes with tea must have been wonderful — hope you’re feeling better and stronger with each passing day.
