An “Official” Afternoon Tea Day

Happy Friday everyone! They just declared November 12th the official afternoon tea day at all the Fairmont Hotels. Aside from having another reason to celebrate with an afternoon of warm scones, clotted cream, and tea sandwiches, I thought the Fairmont website info page was interesting with the history of tea at the hotels, a page on afternoon tea etiquette and all sorts of fun tidbits about the art of afternoon tea.

The one Fairmont we have in NYC is the Plaza Hotel – Lisa and I had tea there last month. We won’t be back to the Plaza anytime soon…just because there are too many places to try in the city. Perhaps we’ll do The Pierre Hotel or The Carlyle next…
