Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont

A Groupon-type site called Dealfind recently offered a deal for Afternoon Tea for 2 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for only $36. Deals at the Fairmont are often very popular and always sell out quickly. I'm more of a coffee drinker than a tea drinker but I do love the occasional tea. I enjoyed the smells of it mostly. So when a friend asked me to join her and some other friends, I quickly agreed.

On Saturday, we met up at 2pm to have tea. Each of us received our own personal pot of tea and I tried one called Angel Falls Mist ("a wildly, exotic strawberry and lemon character...a pinch of sugar boosts the flavor profile...makes terrific herbal tea - hot or iced!"). It is mild and has a nice fruity taste that I liked and it smells really good. Tea comes with a double-deck tray of petit sandwiches, tasty pastries, house-made scones and fresh strawberries with Devonshire cream. I liked the savory treats more than the scones and the sweet tarts and cakes. We each get two scones and we all agreed it was too much! It was a very filling afternoon snack and I had a nice time chatting and catching up with my friends.
