Immersing into the English Culture “Afternoon Tea”

Our first destination on our English Cultural Trip was the historic Hotel Bristol, located in Old Town Warsaw. Students enjoyed a authentic English Afternoon Tea in one of the elegantly appointed ballrooms. When we arrived tables were beautifully set with all the traditional trappings and delicacies that are customarily enjoyed at Afternoon Tea: sandwiches, pastries, and scones. Everything served was cooked and prepared onsite at the Hotel Bristol. Fresh baked scones served with sweet cream, jam, and lemon custard were the highlight! Waiters next took orders for tea. Students each received their own pot of tea to be enjoyed with cream and sugar. The Afternoon Tea was an excellent opportunity for students to get to know each other better. We hope that the setting and flavors hightened students’ appreciation of English culture.
