Mad Hatter Tea Party!

"There is a place, like no place on earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger. Some say, to survive it, you need to be as mad as a hatter. Which, luckily, I am." -The Mad Hatter. If you're a tea lover, or you're just a little mad, then try a Mad Tea Party at The Mad Hatter Bistro and Tea Room in downtown Birmingham. In order to do this, you must make a reservation for tea time between the hours of 11pm-4pm. When you arrive, it will feel as if you fell down the rabbit hole, and landed as Alice in Wonderland at the Mad Hatter's tea setting. Be prepared for pretty little China plates, delicate tea cups, sugar cubes, and saucers of cream and honey. Also be prepared to have a seriously difficult time choosing which flavors to try off of their expansive menu of bottomless tea. I would personally suggest the chocolate mint tea, seeing as it was the crowd favorite! The service was absolutely wonderful, and we were even sent with a bag of 3 extra tea flavors to try at home. Just when we thought it couldn't possibly get better, a 3 tiered tray of finger sandwiches, scones, spreads, fruits, and pastries was brought to the table. We thoroughly enjoyed tasting every last delicacy, and couldn't stop giggling over how fancy we felt. Time felt as though it had slowed, and I felt so grateful slowly sipping my tea, trying each treat, and enjoying each other's company. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I love a good moment to take in and enjoy the little things. In a quite literal sense, the miniature size of everything was adorable...;) So try something a little out of the ordinary, and host a tea party at The Mad Hatter.
