Aylesbury Tea Room

one of the things Mr Magpie and I did to ring out 2011 was to go out for tea to our favorite local tea spot in nearby Leesburg, Virginia…

they serve THE hottest cups of delicious Yorkshire tea thanks in large part to Mrs Busy B Jessica’s hand stitched tea cozies

their scones and tea sandwiches are perfection as well…

Mr Magpie and I dove right into the sandwiches on the top tier so no photo of those for you here…

but lookie look who was there to greet us…

I have featured Aylesbury on my blog before here and here … it really is the best spot for a proper traditional tea in our immediate area and for a really fair price

here’s wishing you a Happy first T Tuesday of 2012…

be sure and visit Kimmie for more tea stops…

  9. You are so lucky to have tea with Kate and William! Did you get their autographs? I actually have a blog friend in England who sat next to Kate’s biological family and got a smile from Pippa!
    Thanks for your lovely, lovely words, Patty. I need to get off the couch and go pack for Mayo. And on we go, huh?
    Hoping for a better year for you…

  18. Oh, I envy you your proper tea spot! The only decent tea I get at local places here are at Chinese restaurants (unless I drive an hour to The City). Other places serve their tea tepid. Disappointing! No amount of pretty atmosphere can compensate for tepid tea!

    Your Mr. Magpie is a prince for going to a tea room with you. My Mr. wouldn’t consider it. It’s 11pm, but your post is making me want a cup of tea!
