Today I took high tea with Alexa and Jonathan at Patisserie Valerie. It was a wonderful experience, and I’m really sad that we don’t often take part in it in America.
High tea can cost upwards of £50 per person, but we got a pretty good deal. Afternoon tea for two cost us £25, and we split it between three people, so we each paid £8. Totally worth it. I have always liked tea, but I am falling in love with it all over again here in London.
This three tiered feast consisted of:
-a blackberry jelly thing
-butter, lots of butter
-little baby jars of jam
-smoked salmon sandwiches
-chicken, pesto, and sun-dried tomato sandwiches
-ham, mustard, and lettuce sandwiches
-egg salad sandwiches
-bell pepper quiches
Yum. So good. All of the food here is so good! But, I have to say, my favorite tea has been the tea that we have every morning right here at the Pickwick.
This casual tea room was a great place for us to have our first high tea experience. We were able to dress casually and enjoy ourselves, and most importantly, save money. I’m very happy that we got the chance to have high tea here in London.
