It was a dark and rainy day-- a perfect day for an October tea!
As promised in one of my previous corresponding Outfit of the Day posts, here are pics and a run down from my latest tea time adventure.
It feels like it's been a while since I last went to one of my favorite places for tea, Tyme for Tea in Fremont. In fact, while savoring the warm sweet creamy drink in my tea cup my friend and I tried to figure the last time we were here. We couldn't come up with a consensus other than we both agreed it's been some time.
Tyme for Tea is a quaint tea room which shares its location with a largish antique and teaware shop in the historic Niles district of Fremont (home of many Charlie Chaplin movies!).

For afternoon tea I chose to get the Victorian tea which included a scone with fresh cream, lemon curd, and preserves, five assorted tea sandwiches which included a chicken salad sandwich, cucumber and cream cheese sandwich, a mushroom turnover, a spinach pastry, and an open face melted jalapeno cheese sandwich, and three desserts. By the time the tasty desserts arrived I was full but did manage to eat my peanut butter honeycomb dessert while taking home my butter cookie and petit four for a special treat for later. For tea, I chose my favorite a Rooibos tea, this time in an almond coconut macaroon flavor.

As always it was a super special treat to get to go out with a friend for tea and was made all the more sweet staying dry with warm tea inside while it remained grey and rainy outdoors.
Until the next time!
