For the first time ever, I got to experience "high tea" with my mom over the weekend. If you aren't familiar with this, "high tea" takes place before afternoon tea and was given its name due to the type of tables the meals were eaten at (high tables versus low). Our experience started with our own pot of tea served out of lovely teapots. After enjoying our warm tea, our first course was served which included a bowl of soup, followed by yummy quiche and an assortment of scones and finger sandwhiches.
Our high tea experience ended with a delicious array of desserts. My favorite was the chocolate mouse- how creative! This was a very fun experience that I would definitely do again.
