How perfectly cozy to attend a tea with good friends. Several weeks ago we went to an Afternoon Tea, also known as English Tea or High Tea, at the Ritz Carlton. The setting was very nice, with Christmas decorations to highlight the festive season. We were also entertained with Christmas tunes by a pianist. Our tea started with....
- Prosciutto, Butter, Cream Cheese, Asparagus, Chive, Cream Cheese Star on White
- Jumbo Gulf Shrimp, Herbed Cream Cheese, Chives on Whole Wheat
- Classic English Cucumber, Chive Cream Cheese, Chervil Sprig on White
- Smoked Salmon Rosette, Salmon Cream Cheese, Capers, American Caviar, Dill Sprig on Pumpernickel
And in the tradition that is the English Tea affair, we all wore pearls and when sipping our delicious tea, our pinkies were extended.
Have you ever attended an English Tea?
