The thing about tea is it is a wonderful drink, and when accompanied by friends and cakes, or even cucumber sandwiches, it is lovely indeed. Looking for a drink that is neither alcoholic nor sweet, nor strongly caffeinated? Go for tea! And at Wiess College on the third Thursday you can have it with many friends.
I took some photographs, looked around for friends, and besides Mike and Denise, our hosts, found Samantha, from our bird field biology course. She let me know she wanted to go on the optional field trip, and hoped others would too. We ended up with half the class!
Tea, Thursdays, 4:30 PM, a great time for a chat!
A lovely Wilson House tea set, with the Texas Medical Center in the background.
The tea was hot, but iced, unsweetened tea is our national (Texas) drink.
These cucumber/dill on rye sandwiches reminded me of Denmark, though there the sandwiches get really elaborate!
Out the window is Sid Richardson College on the left, home of Danny and Miller not so long ago, and on the right the Hermann Professional Building, where my grandfather had his Obstetrics office.
Scones, madeleines, and more!
You don’t say!
