We are not certain when our love for afternoon tea first developed. We were immersed in British culture at a young age thanks to some of the best children's movies ever made: The Wind in the Willows, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Mary Poppins and Alice in Wonderland. Our love for tea undoubtedly grew during Lindsey's junior year of college studying abroad in England. Now that we live in different states than one another, and in a different country than our older sister, we find ourselves frequently traveling to visit each other and afternoon tea has become a customary element of our visits. We enjoy discovering new tea venues and appreciate the similarities of each tea as well as the unique twists on tradition at the various venues. After countless teas together, we found that we had unconsciously developed a list of qualities we looked for at each tea: aesthetics of the tea room, tea presentation, quality and variety of teas and delicacies, etc. Thus we began exploring the tradition, luxury and fine art of afternoon tea. We look forward to sharing reviews of the tea rooms we have visited as well as our favorite books about tea and delightful tea accessories that we discover.
