If I could’ve had afternoon tea during my entire London trip, I think I would’ve been quite content. English scones are so delicious with the jam and clotted cream!
After exploring the British Museum, I was in dire need of sustenance. I didn’t want to eat in the museum although I read that it wasn’t too shabby, but I needed to get some air. I found out about the Tea and Tattle beforehand and since it was close to the museum, I added it to my list.
The tearoom is actually located in the lower level of a book shop. I made my way down the stairs and it wasn’t packed at all — just one group of ladies in the middle of their afternoon tea.
I had a pot of some earl grey tea. I like it with milk, no sugar.
I chose the smoked salmon and cucumber sandwich. What is it about sandwiches cut into triangles with the crusts cut off that make me want to eat them?! So dainty and yummy.
Also had a slice of Victorian cake and, of course, some scones.
I am so in love with English scones it’s not even funny.
