Sparkling Wine Tea

My best friend Mary and I treated ourselves to a special break this morning as we needed to "catch up" with one another's lives. Our visit included a hearty Irish breakfast at Fuschia Tea Room in Charleston. Mary had a breakfast quiche, I had a bowl of Irish steel cut oatmeal (served in an oversized teacup - see below), and we shared a bracing pot of steaming hot Barry's Irish tea together with scones, cream, and jam. Who said breakfast can't be fun????!!!

We decided to exit through Fuschia's wonderful gift shop, Forty Shades of Green, and it was there that we spotted Golden Star Sparkling Tea. Yes, sparkling TEA!

It was a major mistake that I didn't purchase a bottle, because the description on the Golden Star website is intoxicating (even though the tea isn't - it's non-alcoholic). Check it out for yourself, and in the meantime ~ have you had sparkling tea?

That sound very nice, but the jury is still out on the oatmeal and the sparkling tea. What I really want to know is, did the scones have raisins in them?

Sounds like a lovely breakfast. Isn't Barry's tea a great robust morning tea and I like Irish oatmeal too. I can't wait to visit the Fuschia Tea Room.

I discovered Golden Star recently too, but decided that the price was a little too steep, especially if you have it shipped. I'd like to try it sometime though - I think it would beat my usual sparkling grape juice or cider.

I think you are in Britain now March 28 - April 4th? Have a wonderful time and of course ..wish I was there!

Mike: I can vouch on the Irish oatmeal, and I'm believing that anything with the word "sparkling" in in has to be good. The scones, yes, they had sultanas in them and were yummy.

ParTeaLady: Yes, the Golden Star was pricey - $19.99/bottle. I think Fuschia is the only place around these parts carrying it.

Bernideen: I'm sorry to report that this year's Tea in London tour did not materialize as we did not reach the minimum required number of people needed. I will try again next year....
