After several visits to London, spending afternoons at high tea remain some of my favorite memories. There’s something so comforting about sitting down for several hours to enjoy tea, sandwiches, sweets and conversations. It’s exciting to see that nowadays you don’t have to go across the pond to enjoy a proper English tea - and after this week, I hope that we’ve inspired you to recreate the same experience at home! Just don’t forget these few essentials . . .
