The only way to make afternoon tea more indulgent…
…is to have the entire service delivered up to your room.
What a treat.
Darjeeling for both…
…and the most beautiful tea sandwiches. Smoked salmon, prosciutto, and egg salad. Little crêpes rolled with…
…roasted vegetables and cream cheese.
Warm scones, a half-dozen to share.
And a set of jams, marmalades, and preserves.
Honey from Baur au Lac’s own hives.
Clotted cream, most necessary.
A little of everything…
…and a fresh cup.
Onto the sweets.
Kumquat mousse on a spice crust.
Berries and cream.
Pistachio and raspberry tart.
Till next time ^-^
P.S. We had the same service in the lobby lounge the day before. This is one of my favorite afternoon teas.
