High Tea at The Empress Hotel

Honestly, I didn’t regret leaving the exquisite Butchart gardens for High tea at the Empress Hotel. That was a double win:

-this historic hotel – one of the oldest in Victoria, 1908- is a must visit and

-I absolutely relish this quintessentially English tradition : the array of savoury small sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, marmalade, colourful cakes and tea β˜•οΈ poured from a beautiful teapot.
