Afternoon Tea



My friends Elaine and Helen introduced me to the pinnacle of civilisation that is afternoon tea! I've wanted to go to a posh afternoon tea for ages. Here are finger sandwiches (no, not made with fingers in which would be yuck) with smoked salmon, cucumber, ham and egg. Fruit and plain scones with jam and clotted cream. Cream, lemon drizzle, pistachio and chocolate cake and mini fruit tarts. Champagne was available but sadly we were driving.

They do posh afternoon tea at that Victoria Restaurant place on the corner of Union Street and Belmont Street. :)

I love afternoon tea, haven't done that for years.

Elinor, if you and Alistair ever come to the Pacific Northwest, you might like to have high tea at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, BC. I've always wanted to go there for tea. Now, I have to have a passport. LOL
