Afternoon Tea was one of the things Dave's dad really wanted to do on our trip to Boston so we treated him for Father's Day and it was the sweetest experience.  His dad absolutely LOVED it, and we did too!

If you missed our other Boston posts, you can see them here:

We lucked out by our hotel having a special afternoon tea, which made things super easy.  The Langham has such classic heritage and hosts a signature afternoon tea with Wedgwood.  This experience recalls the grandeur of the brand's flagship, The Langham London where the tradition was born in 1865.

Afternoon tea is served in the The Reserve, which is located to the left of the lobby once you enter the hotel.  Seatings are available at 12 PM, 2 PM and 4 PM.  We made a reservation for 4 PM to allow for plenty of time to get to our hotel from the airport AND get our first lobster roll of the trip.

Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood includes Langham teas and an array of sweet and savory bites.  Per person, you're looking at a pricey $50.  Although, as much as we ended up loving this (especially Dave's dad), it was well worth the money we spent.  Everything was so good and exceeded our expectations!

Once we arrived and settled in, they brought a selection of Wedgewood teas for us to pick which one we wanted.  This was such a fun part of the experience and really made it personalized for everyone.  

We had the opportunity to smell all of the teas and then select which one we'd like to have.  Jessica chose Mountain Pearl and Dave picked English Afternoon.  Ahh, afternoon tea was served.

Not a detail went unnoticed during afternoon tea.  The place settings were beautiful, the flowers were fresh and the tea was delightful.  The more times we get to enjoy afternoon tea, the more we think it needs to become our reality.  Let's just say they have things figured out in London.  Am I right?

The food!  Oh my goodness you guys, the yummy food!  Let's just say once Dave realized we were paying $50 a person for more than just a couple cups of tea, he totally got the price tag.  HA!

Here is the delicious line up of all the treats we enjoyed during Afternoon Tea:

English Cucumber, Nattagansett Sea Salt Feta and Dill on Brioche

Sweet Corn Tart with Main Lobster Salpicon

Tarragon Chicken and Scallion Salad, Vol-au-vent

Parma Ham, Wild Flowerhoney Mascarpone and Roquette on Granary Bread

Traditional English Scones with Devonshire Clotted Cream, Strawberry Jam and Lemon Curd

It cannot go unsaid that lemon curd was unbelievable!  We wonder if they ship?  #lemoncurdtogo

Blueberry Almond Butter Cake with Lemon Custard

Peach and Thyme Honey Ricotta Verrine (the only thing Dave and I did NOT really enjoy)

Rose Water White Chocolate Tart with Rose Crystals

Valrohna Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Profiterole

Afternoon Tea at The Langham was absolutely precious.  We had such a sweet time and couldn't have thought of a better way to kick off our adventure in Boston.   We were so excited to get things started!

Dave and I are ready to go back to Boston again.  Yes, already!  We cannot say enough wonderful things about the city and our time together there - it really was magical!
