Our night at the Ladies Literary Club in Ypsilanti was absolutely wonderful! Our host Acadia put together an incredibly beautiful tea party and she left no detail out. Below are a few samples of the evening including all the beautiful (and unique to each table) tea settings. The Wormwood Queen’s hubby Ted was a wonderful master of ceremonies for the event mingling historical facts about the city and the Spiritualist movement and with a gentle slight of hand turned things over to us for a little bit about our society, where we come from and the stories behind our teas. We started with Butterfly Circus Tea and got into tales of that circus, fairies, and how Mab came to be in the most interesting green house this side of Salem. The next serving was absinthe tea and devoted to all things green fairy as Kate talked of her family’s history creating absinthe and how some of the myths attributed to the drink came to be. The final tea was our new blend created for the Motor City Steam con –a nice vanilla and rum mix. Tea goers sipped tea with the loose tea inside as Kate gave them a lesson in tea leaf reading. A few ghosts popped in for a visit; one of which got a tad surly at times and really liked to stand behind people. We were also pleased that through our gift box raffle we were able to raise additional funds for Acadia’s The Blushing Violet Project. It was a wonderful night and we can’t wait for the next one!
