Tea in the Napa Valley….what a treat

We love the Napa Valley…Certainly for the wine, but just as important to us is the fabulous food.   The Inn we often stay at offers an afternoon tea which “hits” the spot.  While the actual hot tea isn’t whole leaf,  it is organic –  the iced tea is fresh and brisk.  The variety of finger sandwiches and petite sweets are beautiful and tasty, served buffet style.  This afternoon tea offering “comes with the room”… not bad, huh!    After tasting wine all day, relaxing in the cheery lobby seating area consuming tea and delicious savory and sweet morsels  is a nice way to detox while planning your night out at some of the best restaurants in the country..

Their tiny  Russian tea cookies and petite chocolate hazelnut biscotti are delightful…crunchy and nutty…I just love them.  Give me a nut and I’m a happy person.

  5. The truth of it is that balanced cooking techniques need to satisfy only THREE basic and simple conditions the food you eat should not have surplus amount of fat and sea salt i.e. should not be loaded with calories, it should retain their nutrients i.e. it shouldn’t be empty calories above all, it should taste good.
    Nice Post, Terrific to find another person into their food
