A HOT CUP OF TEA is soothing refreshment on a damp, cold day. And, getting together with friends for a tea party is one way to ease through the winter doldrums.
A tea party by the Friendly Thyme Herb Club will follow the group's 10 a.m. meeting Friday.
Members who mix their own blend of tea, herbal or otherwise, will share recipes and discuss whether their blend is made for its taste or for medicinal reasons.
Members are reminded to bring their china teapot, cup and saucer, and any books on tea they would like to share.
Tea snacks will be provided by members.
