Teatime. My favorite time. Without question or exception.
An occasion, any occasion, to meet with and enjoy company in the cruelest of winter weather (of which we have not seen much here in Salt Lake). An occasion to sit with your thoughts of the budding new year and a good book near the faux-fireplace, listening to eccentric old ladies a'chattering.

Hazelnut tea with orange-cranberry scones.
Bottom left teatime at Mazza.
Cardamom tea with orange-blossom simple syrup.
An after-holiday luncheon. To myself. Again.
