Babington's Tea Rooms in Rome

During our free afternoon in Rome,
 part of our group chose to walk to the Spanish Steps,
the Piazza Di Spagna.
I knew Babington's Tea Room was located near the Steps,
therefore, my reason for the very long walk!
Babington's English Tea Room was located just to the left of the Spanish Steps.
 
We told the others we would find our own way to the group meeting place,
 many blocks away, at the designated meeting time. 
 The historic Babington's English Tea Rooms was established in 1893
by Isabel Cargill and Anna Maria Babington. The history of how this tea room
survived two World Wars and the Depression is amazing!

 
 We orderd the Babington's Cream Tea
Glenn studied the map to be able to walk the long distance through
the city to reach our meeting destination.
Austin was so pleased to have a nice cup of tea!
Cream tea included two scones for each person, a black currant and a plain.
It also included cream and jam, and a pot of tea.
Austin and I orded the Babington's Special Blend Tea.
Glenn ordered decaf tea.
I am so happy my family loves afternoon tea as much as I do. 
Austin said it would not have been a Jennings Family vacation
without afternoon tea.
I just love that boy!!

This really does sum it all up: Austin said it would not have been a Jennings Family vacation without afternoon tea.

Such wonderful, bonding moments in a very special place. What a treat! Thanks for documenting it for all to see. I enjoyed this virtual visit!

This is a special treat indeed for your travels through Rome. I brought home some of their Special Blend tea and thoroughly enjoyed. Still love the tin. And yes! A vacation holiday must include an opportunity for tea.
