Long Description:
On Thursday, June 7, 2012, I had Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport. The server brought in a selection of nine loose herbal and black teas for me to choose from. I chose the Earl Grey Tea. The Earl Grey tea was just ok. It was made in a tea press rather than a traditional ceramic tea pot.

The food was delicious but a bit parsimonious. There was berry salad to cleanse the palate. Next was a three tier server with the food courses. There was tasty tea Sandwiches of Smoked Salmon on Rye with Cucumber; Curried Chicken and Mango on Baguette; Egg Salad Croissant; and Aged Cheddar and Apple with Fresh Basil. Freshly Baked Cranberry and Lemon Scones with Devon Clotted Cream and Strawberry Jam. And Desserts: Chocolate and Hazelnut Tart; PVA Honey Cheesecake; Lemon Tart; and Vanilla Cream Puffs.

The Afternoon Tea was rather expensive: $36.00 plus about $4.50 HST plus tip. Pay bill with Canadian Money or Credit Card - not with U.S. Currency.
