Afternoon tea is so delightful. I used to ferret out tea rooms around Seattle. For a time they were all the rage. Whenever we traveled, I'd look up tea rooms to visit. I always wanted the English afternoon high tea. Bring on that food.
Recently, my daughter and I went to the Grand Dame of Seattle tea rooms, Queen Mary Tea Room. When she was little, it was a popular birthday spot. We hadn't been in years.

|Crumpets, quiche, scone, sausage roll.|
|Little cups of carrot soup, apricot tea loaf, fruit|
The waitress asked if we had any food restrictions and we said no. I wasn't thinking about fruit until I saw the plate. Sure enough, under the apples and berries lay some kiwi. After getting a scratchy tongue and throat the last time I had it, I avoid kiwi.
