Tea at the London Ritz is an elegant, sumptuous affair! The setting is dripping in gold. The staff is attentive and sharp. The food is wonderful! And even the bathrooms are lovely.
Taking tea at the London Ritz is a life-long dream of afternoon tea lovers. It is, by many, considered the pinnacle of the experience. I was not disappointed.

Our evening began with champagne then continued with afternoon tea sandwiches (all we could eat!):
* Smoked salmon
* Egg mayonnaise with cress
* Chicken with mayonnaise
Then we enjoyed raisin and apple scones with Devonshire clotted cream and organic strawberry preserves.
For dessert, we had an assortment of afternoon tea pastries and cakes.
The last course was fruits of the forest (berries) with English cream. I enjoyed all of these with several cups of Ritz Traditional English tea.
Even the bathroom was fancy. ;-)
