Afternoon Tea in London

Still under the impression that your average British citizen pauses mid afternoon for a selection of cream cakes and Earl Grey, when we have resorted to blander teas in a mug downed in between emails, visitors often like to indulge in this ancient British art.

The Afternoon Tea is making a strong comeback and ladies that used to “lunch” are now prefering to sit down and pick over a cake selection and a pot of tea.

This has helped bring the prices down, as many of the traditional places seemed to be charging high prices just to get media coverage for what is essentially hot water!
