Tea Time!

I'm not a tea-drinker... I'm just not. As many times as I've tried, thinking it'd be healthier to replace at least one of my cups of coffee with tea, I just can't do it. That is... unless this tea happens to be the tea they serve at the Mayflower, here in Washington, DC. It turns out I'm a bit of a tea snob, I suppose!

Sadly, some fluke bad weather kept my mom in Atlanta earlier this year when my dear friends threw me a bridal shower at the Mayflower but thanks to a set of crazy circumstances (thanks, Allison!), this afternoon, I was able to treat my mom to that delicious high-tea that she had missed!

We had such a great girls' afternoon out down in the city - the Mayflower is absolutely gorgeous and even prettier all decked out for Christmas. We both thoroughly enjoyed our Royal Tea - starting with glasses of Mumm champagne, and then we both chose to have Wild Blackberries Tea along with our assortment of sweet and savory tea sandwiches.
It was a really special and memorable start to our family Christmas celebration. I'm so excited to have my parents here until Christmas Eve and then to continue the festivities with my nephew and niece up in Maryland!
