I love spontaneity and making sudden decisions. If my gut feeling tells me it’s the right thing to do then I’ll do it and even more so when someone like @eatlikeagirl (whose foodie travel in Argentina at the moment have been so interesting), said those immortal words ‘Just do it’, well to me that’s like a red rag to a bull.
Earlier this year I wanted to learn more about Tea and kept putting it off because other events prevented me from attending any Tea Masterclasses. So this morning I asked the question on Twitter if there were any Tea Plantations in the Uk and it turns out there is, in Tregothnan
Searching their website for any masterclasses resulted in a request to call them, so not letting the grass grow under my feet, I did. The result is, I am awaiting with eager breath, for an email to arrive with what I hope is a not too expensive Tea Masterclass in September. Which interestingly enough I have no other events, Secret Tea Room or otherwise, leaving me free to attend. Just remembered a friends Ruby Wedding Anniversary celebrations. Fate will have it being on the same day.
Anyhow, with a bit of luck my Tea and Cake journey may well commence in September. Starting with a tea Plantation in the UK. They have a Restaurant and Tea Bar I wonder if the Gent will want to join me on this one or mind if I take this journey on my own.
In my head I’m already planning my route. So, lets do it.
If you have any Tea Room suggestions of where I should go (around the world if you like) please add your comments below, so I can start planning.
Note: Since this morning when this post was written I have received the details about the Masterclass at Tregothnan and fate has dealt me a blow as I feared it would and I cannot go. However, undaunted as I am, I have now booked myself on a Jane Pettigrew Tea Master Class in London 15th July followed by a visit to The Secret Tea Cup a few days later for some home made Tea and Cake.
The journey begins.
