A Tiny Tea Party

Oh Fall! School, routine and cooler temps all around. But in our home, we celebrate the extraordinary in the ordinary! We dress up, accessorise and go full on fancy-- both with our food and our fashions….  a weekday tea party does all of this! 

It doesn't take much, just a little pre dinner treat for the littles, some warm milk and some chai for mama. For my chai option, I was thrilled to receive samples of Tea India's chai moments to try!

We keep it simple and a little healthy!

Of course dress up is par for the course. I said no to the eye shadow on a Monday but yes to the sparkly  dress.

They love their teeny-tiny glass mugs. Don't let dad know, they're his espresso cups.

Of course lots of chatter ensues about the day. School. The most popular kids. How I should wear my hair. Why she wants to take martial arts (to beat up the boys). Who they will marry. Why we should have a pet. Lots and lots folks. I don't make this stuff up and I love to hear all the little stories. I hope and pray they will confide in me more and more as they grow up. 

A was more in a listening mood-- with her 'very hurting cold'-- her words! 
She did manage to stuff a whole strawberry in her mouth though.

And for me….

(the quality of this image is not the greatest due to my six year old's shaky hands. I really wanted to keep it authentic so it was just us three. Be thankful it wasn't my three year old who loves to take pictures of feet)

 The Chai Moments were the perfect mid-afternoon snack on a cooler afternoon. Currently available in Milk Tea, Cardamom, Ginger and Masala, there is lots to choose from.  You just add six to eight ounces of hot water to your favourite blend, mix and enjoy. I love a cup of chai but for our 10 minute tea parties, it's a lot of work to make a cup of homemade chai for just me. These little packets are super convenient. 

I tried the Milk Tea first and will slowly (okay, maybe not so slowly) make my way through the others. It was delicious and reminded me of the chai you sip at the end of the meal at parties! A true treat. 

 The Chai Moments are also just over a 100 calories- I repeat just over 100 calories! It's the perfect hint of sweetness as a little treat so you can watch your kids scarf down their cookies without begging them for a bite. But while it is sweet yes, at only 12 grams of sugar (compared to other chai offerings with over 20 grams)  it was the perfect hint of sweetness without being overly so. And it has real spices and no artificial flavours. #winwin

Next up, I'm thinking I'll do the cardamom. Or the masala. Or maybe the ginger when I'm a bit under the weather…. oh, the options I have!

And of course a mid afternoon selfie before all was done!

Afternoon Tea Time. I see this tradition continuing for us for years and years to come.
