You don't need to go to the U.K. to get great tea

Truly! We just came back from a trip to Victoria, B.C. where the 'Festive Afternoon Tea' at the Fairmont Empress Hotel blew our socks off.

The Empress has been serving up afternoon tea since 1908, complete with Empress cakes, scones, pastries, clotted creams and strawberry preserves with fresh lavender from their own rooftop herb garden, and 21 loose leafs teas.

Plus - our resident Brit even gave it rave reviews!

P.S. Their holiday star cookies are outstanding, and we nabbed the recipe!
