What would a trip to London be, without going to High Tea with your girlfriends?
We had a special reservation at the Fortnum and Mason's Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon ~ so special.
Fortnum and Mason is the place to buy loose tea and all kinds of goodies . . . Everything is packaged in the iconic tiffany blue ~ .
We each had our own individual tea pots with a silver tea strainer. We had a sip of bubbly champagne and a toast to new and old friendships.
Our table was soon crowded with 3 layer tea stands. Each stand had a collection of sandwiches; cucumber with mint, salmon with lemon, and beef with onion preserves. Then the plate of fresh scones with clotted cream and lemon curd. The top plate was a collection of sweets.
Even better . . . ours were all gluten-free.
My favorite was the coronation chicken salad ~ a special recipe for the Queen.
The beautiful blue and gold tea service was so special . . . I resisted bringing one home.
