I absolutely love tea and desserts, so one of my most favourite outings is going for afternoon tea. I always feel so proper and lady-like…if only I had the fancy hats with fascinators and puffy dress to wear to these outings ;) Each person had a unique teacup and plate. They’re so delicate and pretty! I opted for the establishment’s signature tea, which was an earl grey tea...
