My daughter and I finally made it out for our "high tea" date today at our favorite tea house, The Secret Garden. We'd planned to go for Bee's birthday last month, but every week between then and now one of us was either sick or busy with other things.
To start things off, we both ordered ourselves a pot of tea (I had my favorite Creamy Earl Grey, and Bee had the Lemon Mango Punch)and then they brought us this lovely three-tiered platter full of goodies.
Everything looked so incredible that it was hard to know where to start!
There were rich and creamy egg salad spirals, pita cups with turkey and mango chutney, and mini croissants with genoa salami.
The next level had blueberry tea cake, and mini apple scones with clotted cream and raspberry jam. Their scones are so fluffy and delicious, I'd love to know how they make them like that!
The piece de resistance was the dessert plate, which held an assortment of sweet delights, including luscious lemon tarts (Bee's favorite), mini blueberry panna cottas, and chocolate hazelnut rolls. Delicious.
