High tea at the Empress Hotel in Victoria

Today Fred and I had high tea in Victoria.

It was a surprise birthday present from my daughters, their husbands and children. So nice. And yummy.

We ate the scones before I remembered to take pictures. So they are absent from the pictures. With homemade Strawberry jam and clotted cream. Oh boy. Were they good.

So then we paused long enough to take some pictures.

And they really do serve cucumber sandwiches. Which were amazingly good.

The selection of teas was huge. I had a roobois, and Fred had a breakfast tea. Which he really liked. Which is surprising since Fred doesn't usually drink tea. They use tea lights under the tea, and this keeps the tea nice and hot.

It was a lovely experience.
