Pink teas

One party tells the writer that a pink tea was where they served sassafras tea, but to him sassafras tea as he knew if fifty years ago had more taste than color, the taste blotting out all thought of color… “Ugh!” “blah”, paraphrasing a well known verse.  You may break, you may shatter the cup if you will.  After more than fifty years the taste of that tea remains with me still.

Is it any wonder the Library lived and thrived under this Pink Tea treatment, when women bravely walked up, put down a dime and drank their tea, so the funds thus gathered might prolong the life of this good cause.

–Lewis Henry Wishard, in History of the Iola Public Library, 1929
