At Three Sisters Tearoom we often feature edible flowers on our menu and as a garnish on our tea trays.
Such floral embelishments only add to the enchantment tea time brings.
Sometimes the edible flowers are used as centerpieces....
...but it wasn't until this little sweetie graced our tea table that we actually had a guest EAT the flowers from the vase in the center of the table!
Yep, it was our Birthday Tea and the day lilies really did look good enough to eat. After being told the flowers were edible, our pretty guest in pink plucked one from the vase, plopped it onto her plate, slathered it full of lemon curd, then, like a floral sushi roll, consumed it stamen, pistol, pedals and all!
If not for the smackerel of curd on her lips to give the secret away, one would never have known.
