After taking flowers to a friend of Alice’s, Alice remembered afternoons that she would take flowers to her neighbor and have afternoon teas. She spoke of the German tea, the dry breads and the homemade jams. She asked if I have ever had kluntjes in my tea. During Library Appreciation week, for Alice’s dare to dream we went to the library for an authentic German tea. It was here that I learned that kluntjes are rock candy that you put in your tea cup. When the hot tea is poured, the rock candy crackles and pops. Alice’s face lit up as she hovered over her cup and she of course insisted on another cup!
