It’s the first post of the Holiday Season!
Hopefully, you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving- but now on to the good stuff- Christmas. In Portland the decorations are out, the lights are twinkling and the holiday cheer is all around. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. I have some great Christmas/Holiday/Festivus posts coming your way over the next month- so stay tuned. Today, let’s start things off with one of my favorite Portland holiday traditions: Heathman Holiday Tea.
As you know, I studied abroad in Scotland and tea quickly became one of my favorite things from British culture. Tea is usually a meal served in the late afternoon, early evenings before supper. It’s mostly a social occasion to visit, catch up, chit chat…you know all of my favorite things.
Traditionally, loose tea is brewed in a teapot and served with milk and sugar. Then you are
served a variety of small bites both savory and sweet. The Heathman is sticking with tradition and offering an amazing selection of teas and food pairings. I have been enjoying holiday tea at the Heathman for quite awhile now, it was a great event to kick off the holiday season with my friends growing up. With its floor-to-ceiling traditional decor, sparkling trees and festive table settings throughout the historic tea court is the perfect addition to any holiday tradition.Enjoy!
