Afternoon Tea At The Waiting Room…

afternoon_tea_05afternoon_tea_07afternoon_tea_13Oh boy,  I do love a bit of afternoon tea and this was a good-en! As a little treat my sweet toothed friend Jermaine booked this afternoon tea for us. We’ve been to a number of different styled afternoon tea but this one was by far my favorite. It was so vintage and kitsch!

afternoon_tea_06afternoon_tea_01Plus the food was yummy, we had a pot of Russian Earl Grey tea to share. Then we tucked into our beautifully laid out cake stand starting with sandwiches of egg mayo and cranberry with cream cheese, I’m not usually an egg mayo or cream cheese kind of girl but these were very nice. We then went on to our favorites, the scones!  Not only were they super soft and fluffy but I loved the extra touch of using shot glasses for the clotted cream and jam. To finish off we had a brownie square each, I was far to full for the little meringue’s and they were coffee flavored which is my least favorite flavor! All in all it was a very fun afternoon and a very yummy one too!

With lots of the home decor item for sale, let me tell you it was very hard resisting not to buy anything! afternoon_tea_12afternoon_tea_15 afternoon_tea_16 afternoon_tea_17 afternoon_tea_18Follow me at Twitter and Facebook.

    When we moved to the States, one of the things that made me most homesick was the lack of tearooms anywhere. Americans just haven’t realized the value of a proper cream tea yet. I’m hoping there’s an awakening soon.
