Looking for a new way to spice up brunch? How about trying afternoon tea? This English tradition has become more and more popular in the states, and we know why. The clothes, the food, and another reason to drink champagne. If you are invited to afternoon tea, it is very important to dress accordingly. A nice sundress, a big hat, and a delicate pair of gloves is the traditional way to dress for afternoon tea, but as women become more progressive, so has their choices in tea attire.
Afternoon tea varies from place to place, but the same rules apply. The first thing you do when having afternoon tea is actually have tea. Then the server will offer you a glass of champagne. Always take the champagne!
Following your beverages is an assortment of tea sandwiches. Each venue has their own take on the tea sandwich. My personal favorite is anything that involves cucumber or smoked salmon.
Once you have finished devouring the tea sandwiches like a well-dressed savage, you receive scones and pastries. With these scones comes a variety of jams, honey, and mascarpone. The best way to dress your scone is to start with the mascarpone, add a layer of jam, drizzle on a little honey, and take one giant sip of champagne after every bite. YUM!
