Many collectors and connoisseurs appreciate home furnishing designs inspired by classic creations from internationally-known museums and historic sites. Andrea by Sadek prides itself on working with some of our country's finest institutions to create gift and tabletop collections based on actual pieces found at--and licensed from--such prestigious sites as Biltmore House, The Preservation Society of Historic Newport, the Smithsonian Institution, Winterthur Museum and many more. Not coincidentally, many of these selections are among Andrea by Sadek's best sellers. To view our licensed collections from a specific museum or historic site, simply click on one of the links below.

About the National Historic Trust:
For more than 50 years, the National Trust has been helping people protect the irreplaceable. A private nonprofit organization with more than a quarter million members, the National Trust is the leader of the vigorous preservation movement that is saving the best of our past for the future.

Care and Use (please read carefully):
For all Andrea by Sadek, fine Japanese porcelain tabletop products hand washing is recommended. These items are not guaranteed to be dishwasher safe.
Hand washing is recommended.

Andrea by Sadek pieces usually feature a gold colored border, these borders are painted with a special non-metallic gold paint. While they say they are safe for microwave use, it is not advised.

Most other porcelain and ceramic serveware including many Andrea by Sadek products should NOT be used in regular ovens. The porcelain and ceramics are always somewhat porous and if not specifically designed for oven use they may crack when exposed to rapid changes in temperature. Also many ceramic pieces use glazes which may craze when exposed to rapid changes in temperature

So when's the next tea date? Are we still doing the Queen Mary room? I've also been told of one on Bainbridge just off the ferry dock that has tea and yarns. Urg. Will have to ask LJ-less S. about it again.

Christmas tea, December 12
Anyone interested in attending tea at the Queen Mary Tea Room on Sunday, December 12, at noon, please let me know ASAP! This place is reputed to be very nice, and VERY popular, so I'll need to call and make reservations in advance. I need an accurate headcount, so please be sure you're going to be able to make it. Yes, the gentlemen are welcome to join us.

Vegetarian and decaf selections are available. Check out the website for menu options. You can leave a comment here or email me at jenkittyATjenkittyDOTnet.

Edit: Cripe. Popular doesn't even begin to cover it. They're already booked for the day, and most of the month. I've asked for a slot between 11a and 1p for six if they have a cancellation, but I'll need to select an alternate site. Anybody want to do this one in January, maybe around MLK Day?

Current Mood: tea!

Who's coming out for tea tomorrow?
Anybody planning to make it out to Bothell for tea lunch tomorrow afternoon? From the sound of things, we're going to have a very small crowd.

See you there if you can make it!

Christmas tea?
Ladies! Who would be interested in attending a high-class Victorian tea for Christmas? I'm thinking the Queen Mary Tea Room in Seattle, probably either the 5th or 12th of December (yes, that's a Sunday).

Check out the link and offer your thoughts. Or offer alternate locations. I'd just really love to do a tea in December, as a break from the holiday bustle.

I'll need a headcount closer to time; they strongly suggest reservations.

Reminder - Tea on Saturday
Original link is here. Drop me a line or a comment here and let me know if you're planning to attend.

Edit: Yes, I know the link says November 6. But it has directions to the teahouse, and the note rescheduling didn't.

Brunch and laid-back tea - Cafe Flora
I was greeted with a pleasant surprise yesterday, when the Bear and I went to brunch at Cafe Flora. It's a largely vegetarian/vegan establishment. The brunch is a lovely affair, and $2.50 will buy you a pot of your choice of tea to accompany it. It's not a Victorian paradise of frills and china, but instead a comfortably laid-back place, with an enclosed patio so you can enjoy the day without being out in the weather. I imagine curling up with a cuppa, a book, and a plate of their raisin-ginger rolls would make a rainy day most pleasant.

They have about a dozen teas to select from, with four herbal (read: decaf) varieties. I had the Volcano Moon, a simple but delicious concoction of mint and lemongrass.

I shall be on the lookout for more such tea establishments. Feel free to add your own! Where have you found really good tea, and did it surprise you?

For my tea-drinking friends and companions, I've added a couple more new links to the seapolytea info page. These sites list addresses and reviews for teahouses around the state, the country, and the world. Take a look, and feel free to suggest others for me to add as well.

Update - Need to reschedule tea
Ladies! Due to the change in lisakit's moving date, we need to reschedule tea. How does November 13 look for folks? Or please suggest a different date. This will place us in the middle of Country Village's Holiday Open House, if you would like to take advantage of the time to do a little touring and holiday shopping.

Country Village is very popular during its event weekends. Carpooling is strongly suggested.

Does 1pm work for everyone, or would a different time be better for folks?

Welcome! and next tea date
Welcome to SeaPolyTea! You don't have to be poly or live in Seattle to join, you just have to love tea. Please be respectful of other posters.

Announcement: Tea at the Peach Tree Bakery and Tea Garden, Country Village, Bothell, on November 6. Anticipated cost, $15/person. Shall we plan for 1pm or so?

Click here for information and directions on Country Village. We'll be between event weekends, so parking should not be as much of a difficulty as it can be during an event. If you want to carpool, let me know or make arrangements in the comments.
