tea

To continue the extreme girly-ness of the day, I decided to visit the Blue Winds Tea House. This incredibly sweet tea house serves treats made from recipes found in LM Montgomery's journals, "New Moon Pudding" for example.
I chose their high tea menu: egg sandwiches, scone, shortbread, peach poundcake, tea and the Lucy Maud's famous raspberry cordial.
Those familiar with the Anne books know that raspberry cordial played a large part in the first book. Anne invites her best friend Diana over for tea and mistakenly serves red currant wine instead of raspberry cordial to her. Subsequently, Diana returns home drunk and is forbidden to play with Anne ever again.

Here I am, sipping the raspberry cordial:
or is this the currant wine? I'm starting to feel a bit tipsy....
