Rich's mum took the ladies in the family and I out for afternoon tea earlier in the month. This is an annual little get together that has been happening since her granddaughter Hanna, was wee small! She's twelve now. Super cute, right? This year included, was my third year and it's always such a treat. In 2011 and 2012, we had tea at the King Edward. This year we visited the Royal York.
Afternoon tea is served in the Library Bar from 12:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m on the weekend. One unique thing about having tea at the Royal York, is that there are various designs of tea pots, cups and saucers at the table. Everyone's is a little different!
I selected to have the Jasmine Butterfly #1 tea.Generously floral cup imparts a peerless Jasmine bouquet.
Highly aromatic nose. Delicate white blooms said to resemble butterfly wings.
Butterfly wings, flowers and tea, sounds good enough to me!
In honor of the birth of William and Kate's baby boy, Chef Collin Thornton, Executive Chef at The Royal York arranged a special menu to celebrate.
