Afternoon Tea at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The hubby, GJ, was in Washington, DC for a business meeting this week.
His absolute favorite afternoon tea is at the Willard InterContinental Washington.
Our family enjoyed afternoon tea there a few years ago,
 and he has returned several times since, when he has been in DC on business.
Why is this his favorite?
Because they bring seconds on the food servings if you wish,
and serve a bottomless teapot of a nice variety of teas.
This time he actually scheduled a meeting and discussed business over afternoon tea.
 Have I trained him right, or what?!? *LOL*

He kindly took a photo for me using his phone,
but I thought it was a stretch to ask him to write down the menu.
You can see the Willard Afternoon Tea information here, including a typical menu.
If you are traveling in Washington, DC,
and want a full afternoon tea, we highly recommend afternoon tea
served in the Peacock Alley at the Willard on Pennsylvania Avenue.

For a minute there, I thought *you* had tea in DC, and I was going to asky *why* you didn't let me know! Now I see it was hubby.. whom you did indeed train well! Anyway, IF you are ever in DC for tea, do let me know! I'll try my best to get down there - only 2 hours away.

OK, if your hubby recommends it, I'm putting it at the top of my list!

Oh this is too funny. I can't even PICTURE men having a business meeting over Afternoon Tea. This is great! My hubby who also has the initials GJ didn't like tea houses until I took him to one that served what he called Manly portions, HA! But...I still don't think he would ever go to a tea house alone without me. Yes, you have trained your hubby good.

He is definitely well trained!

When my grandchildren are with e they never ask to go to places like McDonalds. They ask to go to a coffee shop where they get hot chocolate and an ice cream I get a lovely latte! I try to resist the fabulous Thornton's chocolate cakes.

Unfortunately none of us drink tea!
