Have you ever wondered what a High Tea was like on a cruise ship? Frankly, it’s one of my favorite things and I attend nearly every day when I’m not ashore.

The tea is a delicious blend called Twinings English Breakfast Tea. It has a full body flavor and made me smile with delight.

The tea is poured by men and women dressed in formal uniforms wearing white gloves. Oh, how my grandmother would have loved this!

They also serve tea sandwiches, of meats and cheeses, (which I did not have) and cakes, cookies and scones with clotted cream and jam. (And yes, I did have those!)

I also quit drinking coffee on the cruise and drank the Twinings Tea, as well as a decaffeinated tea that I cannot recall at this moment.

Jack even enjoyed the tea with me. He came about half the time, enjoying all the goodies that came along with the tea!

This really was fun. I would encourage you to try it sometime. Most ships offer this, and some of the finer hotels too. It is worth the time.

  2. Just lovely! Makes me think to all the teas we had with Mom, Grandma and Papa! Abby loved tea too, I think it runs in the blood. Love YOU, Mel
