Novelist Robert Louis Stevenson urged people to invest in people.
As he put it, "Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant." So help others. Be a
team player. Arrest someone's attention with your generosity, because it almost always leads to a win-win.
why the Chinese are known for a particular proverb. They say, "If you want 1 year of prosperity, grow grain. If you
want 10 years of prosperity, grow trees. If you want 100 years of prosperity, grow people."
as you well know, we need team players in today's business environment. According to "Talent Management" in their January
2010 issue, the percentage of employees willing to go the extra mile for the company has fallen 12 to 24% over the past 18
months. Engagement has become an even bigger issue than it was in the past. Their conclusion? We desperately
need employees who are committed, engaged team players if we're going to make it through these tough economic times.
Call ahead for reservation! (425) 260-6213

History of High Tea from the archives of Epicurean
High Tea originated as a British working class tradition. “High”
refers to the way it was taken, sitting atop stools in a teashop or standing at counter or buffet table. It was a cross between afternoon tea and supper, and for many it was the main meal of the day? The afternoon tea idea began around the mid 1700’s as a way to ward off the inevitable hunger before
dinner. Today, it has become a more elegant affair. This affair has become less a working class meal and more of an event.
In some cities, it is a “power” business event. Having High
Tea with a client is preferred to the more traditional “night out” and offers a much better atmosphere for discussing
When to serve it? The high time of the day,
around 3 or 4 O’clock in the afternoon.
What to serve? Tea sandwiches for starts, also puddings,
cakes, crumpets and scones served with jellies and marmalades.
Why? It’s the civilized thing to do. The traditional afternoon tea offers a pleasant break in the day, a chance for conversation, relaxation
and have of course a good cup of tea!
