This is the funnest tea I have ever had and was every bit as tasty as it looked. Even my husband loved it, which is a huge accolade considering the difficulty I had convincing him to accompany me to afternoon tea in the first place. It is located inside the stylish Sanderson Hotel in London’s West End, which is itself worth a visit. A great place to while away the hours eating and drinking, which is what I like to do best.
