Whittard of Chelsea

One of my favorite pastimes in the world is afternoon tea.

Too bad these days most people get their afternoon caffeine fix on the go - usually a quick pit-stop at the nearest Starbucks. Tall iced vanilla lattes have their time and place, but nothing can replicate the feeling of sitting down in the middle of your afternoon to a carefully brewed pot of tea and a nice crumbly scone. And I'm not the only one:

Whittard of Chelsea recently opened up shop in Boston. Now you can peruse the latest in Victoria Chintz and British loose leaf varieties. The best part about this Newbury Street shop? The free tastings! There is generally some delicious hot or cold brew for sampling along with a bit of something sweet and delicious. Granted, I can only afford things if they are on sale (mind you: the sales here can be HUGE), but I love to go a-browsing even if it's just for window shopping and sampling.

Do you take cream and sugar?
