As a special treat for me since I’ve never experienced the delights of afternoon tea my cousin La invited Sha and me to Peacock Alley at The Willard InterContinental Hotel. They are very well known for their traditional afternoon tea which they have been serving for over a century.
This was the reason why I spent the whole day by myself in Georgetown while my 2 cousins worked in DC. I met them at the hotel at 4:00 pm for our cousin bonding over tea and little sandwiches.
I’ve never had a timer with my tea before. Sosy talaga! The timer was for 3 minutes, their suggested time for my tea to steep. I had the Willard custom blend tea which the server said was their most popular tea.
