Afternoon Tea - Langham Hotel, Boston



After several attempts to locate a place to enjoy Afternoon Tea, (one venue no longer served Afternoon Tea the other didn't have availability) cousin Karen (our Boston tour guide) made reservations at the Langham Hotel located in the former Federal Bank of Boston in the financial district where they serve Afternoon Tea With Wedgwood in style with all of the grandeur you would expect to find in their flagship hotel in London where they have been serving afternoon tea since 1865.

We were offered the option to select our tea from several proprietary tea blends featured at the hotel or to select from their large assortment of loose leaf tea. There was a wide variety of options available, and we each had our own pot of tea.
Representing four states and two coasts, our family gatherings do not occur frequent enough. It was a very special opportunity for the cousins, related on our mother's family tree, to gather in Boston for a weekend, and what better opportunity to enjoy afternoon tea at The Langham. Our future plans hope to include a reunion on the west coast.

Finger sandwiches included a nice assortment of traditional tea sandwiches and savory bites. Individual plates of tea sandwiches included cucumber triangles, a cream cheese baguette with a sliver of date and almond, egg salad, and a tomato basil pesto on multigrain bread.







English cream scones with Devon cream, strawberry jelly and lemon curd were served after the sandwiches.

And a beautiful array of miniature desserts completed the menu.


Here's to the celebration of family - creating memories!
