Tea Time is The Best Time
A few years ago I experienced my very first tea with my now sister-in-law, then best friend, Bradley (funny how things work out!) at the Ritz Carlton right here in Orlando, FL. She took me as a Christmas gift that year, just knowing how much I’d love it. And gosh, she was right! I fell in love. The tiny sandwiches, the clotted cream, and the petit fours all had me at hello. Not to mention that the tea itself was delicious. It was a day I will never forget! Such a fun treat and THE perfect girl’s afternoon.
Since that first tea over five years ago I’ve attended high tea with my girlfriends, my grandmother, and now with Ryan…which was by far the most entertaining! When we were invited to the St. Regis in Miami for high tea the last time we were in town I JUMPED at the chance. Plus, if I’m being honest, I really wanted to see Ryan at a tea party! ha! And let me tell you, it was not disappointing. He really wanted to order a cappuccino, but was persuaded otherwise after I explained more about how “tea” works. I could tell he was a little bit skeptical, but before long he really got into it!
We had the best time trying all the tiny sandwiches, sampling the decadent chocolates, and laughing over whether or not to put our pinkies out as we sipped. All the silliness aside, it was a lovely afternoon and such a fun one to experience with Ryan. And honestly, he enjoyed himself as well, and would tell you that the sandwiches were his favorite part!
So all of that to say, if you are looking for a fun and different Valentine’s or “Galentine’s” date to plan with your best guy or favorite girls this year… I’d highly recommend looking into going for tea! It’s an unforgettable and lovely way to spend an afternoon with your favorite people. You’ll love it!
