With the weather so beautiful here in Southern California we’re starting to spend more and more time outside. One thing that we enjoy is tea. Served hot, sun brewed or sweet the one thing you can enjoy year round is Lipton tea. Having three girls the one thing we also like to do is to have tea parties. With spring on it’s way we knew there was no better time to get together with friends for a fun afternoon tea.
Our girls also enjoy macaroons, I like that by simply changing the type of flour that you use you can also change the flavor and texture. So right before the party my daughter asked if we could make her favorite cookie, macaroons! So I decided to make a green version of this recipe. It’s fairly simple to follow and I just used 2 TBSP of matcha green powder to the recipe. For the party we also wanted to serve some different types of tea. Lipton’s new black and herbal varieties and improved green teas refresh the tea experience with bold and stimulating flavors, such as Enticing Chai, Pure Green, Orange Passionfruit Jasmine and Peach Mango.
I also wanted to have a hot tea station. Lipton’s updated green teas have a light, fresh taste, bright clearer color and delightful aroma. For a kids party I appreciated the decaffeinated honey lemon. For the party we served several different types of cookies, small vegetables and fresh fruit. The tea station had everything you need to create a delicious cup of tea. We also served a cold peach mango Lipton tea. That’s why I like most about tea is how versatile and full of flavor it is. I think picking their favorite tea to try was one of the fun parts of our tea party. We also made small cucumber sandwiches and had plenty of sweet treats to pick from. All of the teas were so flavorful and they smelled so good. The girls had fun smelling the different teas they tried. The Lady Lipton tea is one of our newest favorites and tastes so delicious with a slice of fresh lemon. This was a favorite of mine but the kids also enjoyed it too. Everyone had a great time with their favorite baby doll and stuffed animals. It was so nice to just spend some time outside enjoying the day. All too often we are too busy to spend time with the ones that we love, so it’s important to make time for friends. As a mom of three girls I know this moments with them are going by so fast, I just want them to make as many memories with them as possible. I’d say a fancy weekend tea party with their friends is a great memory maker and one we will never forget.
