Tea at the Downton Abbey Exhibit
Of course there would be tea featured in the exhibit! This beautiful silver tea set, polished to a sparkle by the downstairs staff is at the ready for the enjoyment of the upstairs family and guests. The little red box held the tea and on the opposite side of the exhibit there was a matching tea box that could be opened and sniffed by the visitors.
Susanna took the opportunity to sniff the tea and declared it a strong, smoky black tea,
most likely a Keemun.
