Whist reading the tenth Wednesday Tea for Thee and Me post on the lovely SilkenPurse blog I realised that it fitted in well with - a. my love of afternoon tea... and - b. with a gorgeous Christmas present that my daughter and I were given by my lovely son and his girlfriend!!!!
My daughter and I received a fabulous gift certificate for Afternoon Tea at the Dorchester Hotel in London's Park Lane!!!
We were very excited, and are really looking forward to going - although I need to wait a little longer untill I can attempt the journey to London!!!
I am a big, big fan of Afternoon Tea - it's so elegant and refined, but best of all so traditionally English!!!
I have also sampled Afternoon Tea at The Ritz Hotel in London, The Wolseley in Piccadilly London and Down Hall in Hertfordshire.
In every case the tea has been wonderful, all slightly different, but a truly marvellous experience just the same!!!
It is one of my favourite things to do!!!
