I love this post by A Lady in London about afternoon tea. If you’re one of those people that need to read the first paragraph before deciding if something’s worth reading fully, here’s a taste…

Brits love two things: tea and alcohol. If I could make up a statistic (and I can!), I would say that the British consume more tea and Champagne than any other people in the world. Being an expat, I try to adopt my host country’s culture, so when an opportunity arises to indulge in both afternoon tea and bubbly at the same time, who am I to turn it down? Especially when it is the Bollinger Champagne afternoon tea at The Goring hotel in London.
