Afternoon Tea at Tudor Place, Washington, DC


Like many historic places, Tudor Place offers a delightful afternoon tea.  We learned about it through an article in Tea Time Magazine.   The tea had a variety of sandwiches, Pesto and Watercress, Eggplant and cheese,  Traditional chicken salad and ham salad as well.

Everything was clearly prepared fresh for us and promptly served with two tea choices. 




During the tea party a pleasant docent gave us a brief presentation on Colonial tea customs,  presenting a tea brick for our inspection,  showing the conical shape sugar once came in, and other tidbits of tea history.






Service was great, food was tasty, we all learned more of our history.  All in all it was a lovely experience.

Loved learning about Tudor Place The capital is on my bucket list pertaining to tea. I'd love to have tea at the Washington National Cathedral, a couple of the hotels, and you have provided another place. Your tea meal looked delicious, and I'm with Steph... how great to see a young male pouring tea. Thanks for sharing.

I love seeing where you visited and this tea looks just wonderful. How I would love having tea here. When you described it I was remembering a tea I had with you and you father and Jan once upon a time.
