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.
