Afternoon Tea, Darling?

The oh so British tradition of drinking tea, can now be found all over London! Endless types of aromatic and rare teas, tastebud tickling sandwiches and scrumptious scones and desserts! What more can one want on a fabulous afternoon after shopping and sightseeing?

Over the summer, Fortnum & Mason reopened their St. James restaurant and renamed it to the Diamond Jubilee Tea Rooms. The establishment has been selling tea over 300 hundred years, so I presume they know what they're doing!

Although we had not planned the visit, the word fabulous would be an understatement. Possibly the best afternoon tea I've ever had. From luscious tiffany blue decor to a black tie pianist playing in the foyer as you're greeted, the atmosphere and the menu was divine.

£38 per head, but worth every penny!


Over 90 wonderful teas from around the world! <3


My matching shirt and arm candy.


Mouth watering lime and mint cooler.



Tah-dah; possibly the best scones EVER!


The service was impeccable and since we replaced the ham sandwiches, they kindly kept offering us salmon and cheese ones!  



My darjeeling tea <3


I think I gave up half way through the cakes! It was WAY too much!
