The day after the World Tea Expo was all done, I knew I wanted to head to The Queen Mary to have Afternoon Tea.
We snagged a table by the window.
Here's the menu.
The savories and scones came out first.
Scones were served with Devonshire cream and homemade local jam.
Shredded chicken & dried mango tossed in a light curry aioli on wheat bread. Deviled egg salad & micro dijon greens served on pumpernickel bread. Canary melon & prosciutto with pomegranate cream on artisan bread & fresh mint.
House cured Alaskan salmon & English cucumber with aioli on rye bread with caviar. Sweet shrimp with heart of palm & herb dressing on sourdough bread.
And then the sweets came out.
They were all so delicious!
I had my tea with a glass of champagne. They had the most adorable accessory for their sugars!
I had an amazing time exploring The Queen Mary and enjoyed the Diana exhibit immensely. We were bummed to find out that the Spruce Goose (Howard Hughes' H-4 Hercules) had been moved decades before to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in Oregon, but other than that, it was a perfect day! Dad had last seen it there over 20 years ago.
Till we meet again for tea!
