International Tea Party

Hello Russian Club!

We've been invited to take part in the International Tea Party!

I think it's a great idea - and if we do, I would suggest this tea. It has a very nice black current and strawberry flavor, perfect served hot on a windy day~

I await your thoughts! Should we make tea-cakes? Would anyone like to come over the night before and make them with me? (I'm thinking IF we make some, we should make 100-200.)

The recipe is pretty simple.

In my 'family cookbook' these are called 'Russian Communist Tea Cakes'. However I am sure they predate the USSR, LOL

A little something about Russian tea culture

I will ask if the university has a samovar on hand - but I highly doubt it. We may have to simply make use with a standard kettle...though I've always wanted a samovar personally and may just have to watch ebay for an affordable opportunity.

So~~~ who's in for a tea party?

Side note: my uncle is in the hospital currently and I'm not sure what each day will bring, so it is very possible that I will not be at our meeting. Our president, Stephanie will do an amazing job leading -  am very confident!

Конечно, я надеюсь, впереди, и надеюсь на хорошие новости в моей семье. до связи, мои друзья!
