London is the place to get high tea, so you better guess what I was going to splurge on. I tried to do some research on the best high tea rooms before the trip and I could only seem to find hotels with high tea. Hotels seem so touristy to me because in San Francisco there are many cute, privately owned tea rooms. But even when I started asking around, people were just recommending the hotels. When I told them how I wanted a small tea room, they told me about a tea shop where you could buy tea…why was everyone so confused by my request?! From what I finally gathered, hotels are the place to go in London, not just a tourist trap. I guess the tea rooms in the states are our own version of the great high teas that London does in hotels. Who knew? I guess it pays to get out in the world for some culture lessons, especially on something I thought I knew a thing or two about.
