Holiday Tea for Two or More!

Holiday Tea for Two or More!

It’s that time of year to celebrate the holidays with friends and family. Each year my Book Club goes somewhere different in San Francisco to enjoy a “High Tea” with tasty finger sandwiches, homemade scones and miniature cakes and cookies. This year we opted for a new tea place called Sip Tea Room.  It’s in the Inner Sunset on Lincoln Avenue and was opened earlier this year by two women.  It’s a small storefront that has been turned into a comfortable dining area with a kitchen in the back where all of the delicacies are carefully made.

We have been together as a Book Club for 17 years and our tradition is to vote on a book recommended by one of us and then eat at a location that reflects the setting of our book. The book this month was “Anna Karenina,” an 800+ page Russian novel taking place in the late 1800s. It is filled with fascinating characters with themes of jealousy, fidelity, social mores, family and more. It’s a timely read with the focus on Russia these days. The formal tea was a nice complement to a book that illustrates the social rituals of the Russian upper class lifestyle. Next month we are reading “Brave New Weed: Adventures Into the Uncharted World of Cannabis.” It should be interesting when it comes to choosing a place to have dinner that reflects the subject matter of our book.:)
