Happy Lunar New Year!

This afternoon DH and I went to a Chinese New Year tea at one of our local tea shops – Indigo Tea Lounge.

We went to this same event last year, and it was mostly the same – a huge bunch of delicious food, tasty tea, and some fun treats to take home 🙂

Here is the menu describing the food – all lucky and all very tasty. We spent a couple hours sipping tea and eating and talking – it was a really nice afternoon! As we paid, they gave us red Year of the Rat envelopes with fortunes in them, and little red takeaway containers with a mandarin and some candy in them.

(They didn’t give us the little rat planter – I bought that at the grocery store. He is included for decorative purposes.) Just like last year, I really enjoyed this tea. Already looking forward to next year!

  1. Gung hay fat choy! We were away for the new year for DH’s birthday, so I had to make jai for my Mom in advance of the new year. It’s a stew of lots of different vegetables and fungi, full of symbols, too. Now I’m hungry again!
