My friend Rebecca was in from Colorado for the weekend and Caroline and I decided that it would be fun to go to high tea at Grand America. Rebecca and I have a shared love for tea so we've introduced Caroline to the fun. As we were planning our ladies weekend, we knew that we wanted to have tea at Grand America. So, on Friday afternoon we all dressed up in our best and headed downtown. We entered the main lounge and were served a beautiful assortment of finger sandwiches, scones and clotted cream, desserts and of course as much tea as we could drink. Everything from the live harp music to the apricot tea was perfect. We sipped and talked, and sipped some more. Perfect.
At each table they had a tea flower, which is tea that is pressed into a tight ball. As it brews, it opens. So pretty.
Here are the yummy finger sandwiches, the scones and the toppings. We had clotted cream, lemon curd and jam.
These were my sandwiches. Look delish, don't they?
And then after we are done with the scones, we get dessert. The chocolate moose in its own chocolate cup was my favorite!
Here are the three of us, Rebecca, Caroline and me.
If you are from Utah and have never walked around the Grand America, you must! It is so worth it. Plus, tea isn't bad either!
