On Monday, I mentioned attending a graduation celebration last weekend. It was such an honor to be there, for the graduate selected only 12 women to attend a wonderful dinner in her honor.
We were served an amazing four course meal, and a little after 4:00 PM, tea and scones were served...this was my beautiful cup from the grandmother's collection.
The brand was the house tea from THE DORCHESTER in London. They began afternoon tea in The Promenade in 1931, and now boast of many awards and are known for celebrating the best of British heritage.
I also want to add...and, please, do not shoot the messenger, but the dress code for tea at the Dorchester is called smart casual. You are NOT ALLOWED to wear baseball caps, beanie hats, sportswear, trainers, flipflops, shorts....or ripped jeans! (Thank you!)
The tea was fabulous...the best I have ever tasted...and I have tried many teas. This one is a fruity black tea with vanilla and caramel flavors and a hint of lemon...medium body. The flavor was created in honor to Paris.
I was so excited I could order the Paris tea on Amazon...and I promptly did....including a couple of extras to use for gifts. The information is below. I also am going to practice making scones. I am so ready to have a group of family or friends over and serve this tea. It was such an honor and a special moment. I highly recommend bringing a little bit of the Dorchester home!
Enjoy Your Tea Time!
