I contemplated for weeks what to get the ladies in my family for Christmas. Finally it hit me. We decided to spend a few days after Christmas in Asheville, North Carolina which is one of my favourite places in the world. It's so serene and ecletic full of natural beauty, high class, and eclecticism. I decided to give them a tea at the inn on the Biltmore Estate. It was so lovely! One amusing note was the simple fact it was a tea. My sister-aunt, thinking it would be light tea was planning on order something for afters but we had a plenty. We each got our choice of teas ( I had the mayan chocolate truffle) it was decadent and wonderful. A savoury plate, a champagne cocktail, and ginormous tray of sweet delights. The Inn was lovely as always. I hope that one day this will become an annual tradition of ours.
