Lindsay’s Tea Party had an exquisite afternoon tea at The Grand Del Mar. Upon arrival the polite staff immediately parked our car through the valet services. After locating the Library we entered a beautiful room filled with books and quaint antique chairs, crisp linens and stunning wood moulding throughout the ceilings and walls.
A waitress quickly seated us and offered us a variety of teas to choose from. There was also the option to stop and sniff any of the nicely labeled jars filled with the loose teas before deciding upon which one to begin with.
We chose the traditional English Breakfast and the Ambrosia (with coconut).
Both teas were fabulous tasting and piping hot served with honey, sugar and creme.
Then the first of the 3 tea courses arrived.
First course included superb tea sandwiches a mixed variety including salmon and cream, cucumber cheese, egg salad and cheese and ham. Then came warm and fresh scones. 2 types for each of us. A plain scone and a cranberry, served with lemon curd, freshly made house preserves and the traditional Devonshire cream.
Next came course 3, a lovely array of pastries, with chocolates, fruits, tarts and more! All were superb and it would be hard to pick my favorite. We also enjoyed a chilled flute of bubbly champagne which finished off the tea nicely. Information on The Grand Del Mar Afternoon Tea Offering:
