Time For Some Tea
I can’t stop talking about my AMAZING trip to London and you might already be sick of it, but well that’s your bad because today I wanted to talk about the fabulous afternoon tea we had at The Georgian at Harrods.
To go for traditional afternoon tea was one of the things I wanted to do at all costs (literally as it was quite expensive), so after we strolled through the beautiful halls of Harrods we went to one of their restaurants, The Georgian, and ordered 3 afternoon teas, which included finger sandwiches, scones, different jams, pastries, a Harrods trifle and a pot of tea for each one of us. You could also order refills for the sandwiches or the pastries if you liked.
So we started with sandwiches, from which the salmon ones where to die for, so I had to order more of those after finishing the first round. After the refill we went straight on to scones, they where still warm and so delicious. It was the first time for me to have them and it for sure wasn’t the last time.
The best thing about this whole experience was the live pianist! Firstly he played beautiful piano versions of popular pop songs which we enjoyed very much, we may or may not have danced a little (on our seats, while sitting, who do you think we are?!). But then after he finished he came over to our table and told us how happy he was seeing somebody actually enjoying his music and talked to us for a few minutes. This seriously made our day! And on this note my little advice: If you see somebody playing music, making art, or doing anything great really, tell them, smile, show them, it could make their day and the feeling of that will make yours!
Yes, £42 each might be a little bit expensive and I wouldn’t spend that much money on tea and sandwiches every week but for my first afternoon tea and as ending to this amazing day in London it was perfect and totally worth it!
