My hubby's grandmother came over to this country when she was only 16 years old. She left Ireland on her own and connected with extended family when she arrived. She traveled through Ellis Island and remained in New York for most of her life. I think every afternoon she sat down for a cup of tea. She barely dunked the tea bag into the water before removing it to save for later use. She didn't like to talk about Ireland, much to my husband's dismay. She just wouldn't share. While he might not know much about his Irish heritage, my hubby's grandmother did pass on the importance of stopping for a cup of tea. Celebrating tea time is always special for our family! So in honor of my hubby's Irish heritage, I thought I would share some sweet and savory tea time treats.
