Tea and Macaroons


The Daughter found these little cookies at a local shop. The package said they were imported from Italy, which sounded like fun. She got one package of lemon- and one of orange-flavored, which were the only 2 flavors at this store, but the Cuorenero Macaron Sweet Biscuit website lists 6 different flavors in all. These little cookies are good! Not too sweet.

They taste good with the Whittard English Breakfast leaf tea. We made a pot to go with the cookies, and it was all delicious.

This cup and saucer are Anchor Hocking Azurite Charm and were picked up at an antique mall in Arkansas on a family vacation years ago. I like the shape. The pattern is from the first half of the 50s and is no longer made.

Tea time! It's a calming influence in my life.

Please join the weekly T(ea) gathering over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog.

  3. I used to be drawn to Victorian, but now I am in love with mid-century modern. That cup and saucer are super examples of that era. The atomic age, I think they called it. Those cookies look delicious. It's been FOREVER since I've had a macaroon, and these look irresistible.

    Thanks (to your daughter, too) for sharing this lovely Tea cup and macaroons with us this T Tuesday.

  6. Cookies and tea, what's better and such a lovely tea set! I have to say lemon is my favourite too, but you can bet that the orange ones wouldn't be safe in my house either :)
    Happy Tuesday :)

  9. Aha! I was thinking that cup looked like cups I saw when I was a kid! I don't think I've ever had a macaroon. Looks like a lovely Italian tea break. ;)
