Afternoon Tea Aboard The Queen Mary | Long Beach, California

Posted on June 24, 2014 by LISA KUNIZAKI | 0 Comments

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!

XO,
