The Honey Pot
sarahsamudre:

Vasant and I, having a pot of Lapsang Souchong (Vasant’s favorite black tea) at the BEST tea place in Seattle, The Teacup.
Seattle is not a place known for tea, and a lot of the places that advertise for tea either overcharge for a substandard tea service or give you a fairly-priced substandard tea service. 
This place is cozy, with lots of comfy chairs, lovely tables, a fireplace, wholesale tea, and tea classes to take. The tea service is priced insanely cheap for the best tea I’ve had on this continent. I haven’t had this lovely of a tea time since being in England or at The White Heather in Victoria, BC (which is, by the way, the world’s LOVELIEST tea service).
I’m so happy to have found a tea shop that I love that serves proper tea services. And I love that the table was big enough for us to write and draw without any spills occurring.
***This has been one of many teacup/coffeecup posts going up today, since Jennifer ordered them yesterday.

"A Food Forest is a gardening technique or land management system that mimics a woodland ecosystem but substitutes in edible trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Fruit and nut trees are the upper level, while below are berry shrubs, edible perennials and annuals. Companions or beneficial plants are included to attract insects for natural pest management while some plants are soil amenders providing nitrogen and mulch. Together they create relationships to form a forest garden ecosystem able to produce high yields of food with less maintenance."
— Seattle creates a ‘food forest’ in the middle of the city. (Forbes. HuffPost)
