Tea Desserts at the Phoenician

The Royal Tea at the Phoenician consists of champagne and then a pot of tea that you select from a menu of at least nine different choices. I always get french vanilla.

You then move to finger sandwiches. I always have one of each kind (asparagus with ham, cucumber, roast beef with horseradish, salmon, and egg salad). They always offer you another round of finger sandwiches.

The next course is scones, one is buttermilk and the other is with cranberries. You get devonshire cream, lemon curd and strawberry jam to put on your scone. Yummy!

Then you move to the dessert tray where you get to choose from fabulous and unique desserts. Today's photo shows some of the desserts I chose while at tea. And, you get seconds on desserts. You really must come to tea very hungry.

Just this is a good enough reason to visit the place. Had tea several times at the Ritz in London, and it wasn't as gorgeous!

Not only must you come hungry but you must plan on not being hungry again until the next morning.

Yesterday I commented that you had not mentioned my favorite part of tea at the Phoeneian -- the deserts. I should have waited a day, as I did not know that you would show them.

Our favorite waitress at the tea, Wanda, comes out for each course with a tray of the selections, offers them, and then always says, "And if you cannot decide which ones you want, you may have one of each."

I am very good at choosing one of each.
