Afternoon Tea at The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs

 The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs is a fabulous resort in beautiful setting.

We called for afternoon tea reservations and learned they serve 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.
during summer months in the West Tower Lobby.
The afternoon tea schedule has been updated to Fridays only
from July 1 - September 23, 2016.

 We ordered the Julie Penrose Afternoon Tea, named for the wife of the founder. 
Each of us chose a tea from the selection of seven teas and two herbal blends from Mighty Leaf Tea. 
 Our Traditional English tea was served individual three tier servers
at the low table.  My guys tend to slide down in the comfy sofas and chairs
when served tea this way.  Our preference is to be seated at a normal height table, 
but all the "regular" tables were busy when we arrived.  
 Our sandwiches were Salmon, Egg Salad, and Cucumber. 
 Each guest had three scones, served with cream and jam. 
 The assortment of delicate pastries were beautiful and delicious. 
The guys especially liked the raspberry pistachio pastry. 
 Our server was Laura, who offered to refill our teapots with hot water.
 Below, was a display of a photo of Mrs. Penrose
and several of her personal items.  

It was fun to see personal items of the special lady for whom our tea was named.
