Afternoon Tea

In London it is a tradition and a highly practiced event to have tea. Specialty teas and unique teas from around the world are celebrated over small sandwiches and desserts. It is a common practice in London to have tea in the morning as well as in the afternoon before dinner. Londoners many times prefer tea over coffee in the morning and have around 2- 3 cups of tea a day. While living in London we thought it would be a good idea to practice this well known London tradition of “Afternoon Tea”. Living right across from Hyde Park and Kensington Palace we thought it would be a great idea to have Afternoon Tea at Kensington Palace’s tea room, the Orangery. Afternoon Tea begins at 2pm. We sat down and were able to mix from a large selection of teas for each person. With you tea comes a variety of sandwiches, croissants, and sweet desserts to compliment your tea. The experience made us feel like true Londoners and the decor was lavish and amazing to look at. The outside was surround by gardens and the inside was ornately decorated with white lines and chairs and complimented by Blue and Gold dishes. While in London I would recommend everyone go to Afternoon Tea at any place that offers it and enjoy the relaxing experience with friends and good small desserts.
