sunday afternoon tea.

August 28, 2014

Out of the whole summer here in California we only received a handful of gloomy days. Even if the skies are gloomy, the heat doesn't seem to disappear. The sound of afternoon tea with the 3-4 courses and endless cups of hot tea doesn't seem to fit our hot summer. I enjoy it so much, that regardless the weather I still continue to attend afternoon tea. One Sunday it happened to be gloomy, I took my oldest god daughter out The Four Seasons Tea Room, for her birthday.

It was quite lovely as her sister and her Mother (to whom is one of my closer cousins) attended as well. We sat by a huge window that had a view of the garden and gloomy skies. We enjoyed their Buckingham Palace tea, along with Egg, Chicken, and Cucumber tea sandwiches. Not to mention the Freshly Baked Scones, Shortbread, and Lemon bars are my favorite!

Everyone I know seems to be ending their Summer and going back to school. It's finally hitting me that Summer is coming to an end. I'm going to try to fit in a few more beach trips and possibly the LA County Fair {I've never been!}. On the other hand, I'm excited for fall and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will possibly cool down and I can explore and attend more tea rooms in late September and so on!
