Anytime is the perfect time to embrace an old tradition and make it your own: the afternoon tea.

Whether you go out and enjoy somewhere casual like one of our favorites, or somewhere more formal like The Empress Hotel, Victoria BC, Claridges in London UK, or other luxury hotels that feature this wonderful meal on their menu, the flavors of the season are a huge part of the renewal of this fashionable and delicious activity. If you are feeling so inclined, you can whether casual or more elaborate assemble a lovely afternoon tea time incorporating all the richness of taste and color that brings the season alive.

Imagine a meal of Lavender Scones with Rose jelly and Devon cream, chopped egg sandwiches, cucumber and mint croissants, herb omelets, roasted tomato crepes with hollandaise sauce. If desserts are your thing, the petit fours are heavenly and deliciously addictive. Springtime tea is one of those traditions that is easy to adopt and is at this time of year is the perfect way to herald the blossoms and sunshine. Weather permitting, enjoying tea outside, or inside, dressed up or down, this little luxury is worth indulging in more often.
