high tea with the queen.


whilst away visiting my nan i had the opportunity to attend my first ever high tea...
and i was impressed!

 tea drinking (or am i?)

now i have to be honest and admit that I actually drank coffee while at the high tea...
which just sounds so wrong, does it not!?!
guess i'll just have to go to another high tea so i can do it right and perhaps try a delicious flavoured tea, like the caramel variety my cousin choose to indulge in.

mum and aunty.

while I can't comment on the tea itself...
let me tell you about the food...
oh, the food!
mini sandwhiches, sausage rolls, savoury muffins, scones with jam & cream, rose tea jelly, cakes and my personal favourite on the day...
believe it or not, i had never even tasted creme brulee before this and oh i was sold on it and have even tracked more down since - yum!

high tea tasties.

eyes on the prize - scones.

sweet delights.

now while the food and beverages were quite delightful...
high tea really is an experience in itself...
i liked to imagine i was princess kate sitting down to tea with the queen...
haha but no really, it is a classy affair and dressing nicely and pretending to be high class/fancy is what high tea is all about...
perfect for a girly day out/ birthday celebration/ classy hen's do/ any event involving women!

high teaaaa.
