Mother & Daughter matching aprons in 1920

In The Vision of a Mother’s Heart, Isabel and “Mama” shared tea together. Sometimes Isabel was served tea. What other beverage did Mama serve Isabel from the tea pot when Isabel was ten or eleven years old?

Hint: When Mama wanted to share special time with her eldest daughter, it was usually in the evening after Papa and the other children had fallen asleep. Mama was confiding to Isabel the joys, hopes and sometimes discomfort of becoming a mother for the eighth time.
