Tea. Lots and lots of tea. Where's a good place to get tea in New York, you may ask?
That's right, Alice's Tea Cup. Have you been there? It's adorable. They have pages and pages filled with different types of tea, cute little cups, quotations from Alice in Wonderland hand painted on the walls.....basically it's the girliest place imaginable. Many a baby/bridal shower has been held there, and little girls with fairy wings and princess tiaras fill the tables, celebrating birthdays or just hanging out after preschool. I don't care. I can be girlie sometimes. And the tea is really good.
Since it was my first time there, Amanda and I splurged and got the "mad hatter" which means two pots of tea, three scones, two sandwiches, mocha cake and cookies.
It was a lot of food. We couldn't finish it, but that just meant that I got to take scones home and eat them later. My sandwich was a BLT and it was far and away the best BLT I've ever had. A huge stack of bacon dripped fat onto delicious tomatoes and lettuce, while blue cheese and black bread complemented the taste nicely. Plus, I had healthy detox tea, so that I wouldn't be sick anymore.
Ok, well I'm still sick, but at least I'm also cute, right? You can't have everything.
