Tea Time: 10 Proper Spots To Celebrate The Queen's Jubilee (PHOTOS)

Posted: 05/29/2012 7:30 am

There's really nothing more English than afternoon tea, and so in honor of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this June, we've rounded up some of our favorite spots to indulge -- in London and the Commonwealth.

We found scones, clotted cream and smoked salmon finger sandwiches, of course, but a few surprises as well -- from poetry tea readings to a tea inspired by the royal jewels.

Pinkies up, please!

Highlights: Greenhouse-style setting, flower teas and tea poetry readings.

Price: £28.50 for the Traditional Afternoon Tea and the Chocolate Lover's Tea.

The Chesterfield has one of the most charming tea services in London, thanks to the setting in The Conservatory, a greenhouse-style space with garden views. A number of unique tea services are offered, including a Chocolate Lover's Tea, Champagne Tea and "poetea," where live poetry about the different brews is recited. An impressive variety of teas is offered, including some unusual flower teas.
