Tea Time

The Baltimore Sun recently printed a lovely little piece on the resurgence of afternoon tea. Whether you prefer English Breakfast, soothing chamomile, or zesty chai, there is nothing more satisfying than a nice cup of tea. A number of local establishments are hosting high tea, providing customers with delectable finger foods and a comfortable place to relax. Cucumber sandwiches, fresh fruit, and a myriad of pastries are served throughout the two hour experience.
Afternoon tea is an adorable idea for a bridal shower. Not only does it provide guests with a fun cuisine but also a timeless ambiance appropriate for all ages. You don't have visit tea rooms to enjoy the high tea experience, hotels such as the Intercontinental Harbor Court and the Renaissance Mayflower in DC host fabulous events of the sort.
Another enchanting location is Peacock Alley Tea, located at the historic Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington D.C.. If you want a truly English experience Tea on the Tiber, a Victorian Tea room located in Ellicott City hosts annual tea parties and caters private events.
