The view from my bed at Glenburn Tea Estate
I woke my first morning at Glenburn to a light tap at the door. Bed tea had arrived! A wonderful Glenburn Autumnal Darjeeling tea, a few delectable cookies, delicate china, and a view like none other. Oh, it was heaven!
Just a few nibbles to start the day (breakfast is coming soon)
The view out my window
The sun porch adjoining our room, a peaceful place to take in the morning
The long veranda
After leisurely taking my tea in bed, I rousted myself to meet my traveling companions for breakfast on the veranda.

Meals at Glenburn are extended affairs. I love that people take the time to have polite conversation and meaningful discussion without rushing to the next thing. In addition to the delicious conversation, we breakfasted first on fresh fruit, oatmeal and granola. Then we had scones with cream and two types of marmalade: pomelo (my favorite, grown onsite) and orange. Next came the savories, with made-to-request eggs, broiled tomatoes, and avocados (also grown onsite). In addition to more Darjeeling tea, we drank fresh squeezed orange juice.
The bed tea and breakfasts at Glenburn are among my favorite (of many favorite) memories.
