Our good friends Kate and Adam are ending their time in London this week. It is the nature of the beast I suppose, that if we are all in these temporary living arrangements that some people’s temporary is over before ours. It is really sad and we will miss them so much! But as part of Kate’s farewell to London she, Katie and I went to tea at Kensington Palace on Monday. We had a proper good time at the Orangery Tea Room. I hadn’t been to a real afternoon tea since I had been here but it will definitely not be the last!
We began with delightful cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches on poppyseed bread:
Then we had scones with clotted cream and jam. I am not a huge fan of the cream but don’t tell the British people- they LOVE that stuff:
My pot of Darjeeling tea. It was quite delicious loose tea but I have to admit I still can’t really handle milk in my tea!
Three ladies at tea! Note the little orange tree on the table (we were at the Orangery- get it?)

Afternoon tea is definitely now on my list of things to take people to when they come visit. But you will have to come over to have it!! Nana & Honey- let me know where you would like me to book our Christmas tea!
* There was also cake. Delicious orange cake with orange cream cheese frosting so good that it didn’t last long enough to be photographed. But really? A picture of it without you being able to have some would have just been cruel.
