From London and New York City to Seattle and Vancouver, afternoon tea is becoming the hottest way to refuel.
First devised in the mid-1800s, “taking tea” began when the Duchess of Bedford invited friends to join her for an afternoon meal at Woburn Abbey in the English countryside. Featuring small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches and assorted sweets, the event was so popular the Duchess continued it when she returned to London. Other social hostesses soon adopted the practice, with afternoon tea ultimately spreading throughout the various colonies of the British Empire.
Today, ADONIA continues the tea-taking tradition, creating a relaxing, refined — and authentic — experience that’s social, serene and casually elegant.
Enjoy a complete selection of dainty finger sandwiches, fresh baked pastries and mouthwatering scones, along with a steaming (and frequently replenished) pot of your favourite tea.
We serve and sell only the finest loose leaf teas available and, with more than 50 varieties to choose from, are pleased to help you select the tea that best suits your frame of mind.
Stop by for a long visit or a quick cup. We’re certain you’ll leave sated, soothed and satisfied.

Issue isn’t calculators Coun. Bepple in responding to the concern I raised about Heritage House user rates (The Daily News, June 7) uses the kind of selective numbers and information that politicians often resort to. In my letter, I used the example of 80 cents per member a week as an illustration. After all, council in approving the rate increase assured us it was cheap michael kors less than a dollar per member per week. Of course, different groups have varying patterns of use. Ms. Bepple has the advantage of ready access to the Cheap Michael Kors Outlet actual numbers. It happens though that we both didour math correctly. Michael Kors handbags So, putting us both on the same page, I used the real numbers for two representative senior groups who meet 12 hours a week and discovered thatthese groups will be facing an annual cheap Michael Kors handbags increase of more than $2,000 a year a good deal more If you add in taxes. These mostly seniorcitizens are the michael kors outlet contract bridge players and the floor curlers. The point is not in how we jockey the numbers but rather the question, "is jacking the room rates up dramatically cheap michael kors the right way to treat our seniors?" While the councilor is right in her assertion that the number of regular groups is increasing, I am correct inasserting that the number of senior groups using the building is declining. The issue is not how we busily use our calculators. The issue is whether this compulsion to constantly drive rates up is hurting the purpose Heritage House is intended to serve, the needs of seniors in our community. FRANK DWYER Kamloops
