A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_2193Every year in June, Langham hotels around the world celebrate the anniversary of Europe’s first grand luxury hotel, which opened in 1865. This year, the Langham Boston invited me to join them for “Tiffin at the Langham” afternoon tea, celebrating their 149th anniversary.Tea is served in The Reserve, a lounge in the lobby, that has been newly renovated. It looks like it is a set from Mad Men with the bold patterns, mirrors and gold bar.

They have a lovely selection of tea in the following flavors:

The Langham tea blends
The Langham breakfast, Palm Court exotic, Silk road or English flower
Harney & Sons teas
White tea, White peach, Green tea
Japanese sencha
Lung ching, Jasmine dragon pearl, Tropical green, Pomegranate oolong, Black tea, Darjeeling
English breakfast, Earl grey, supreme, Boston, Pu’erh, Lapsang souchong
Decaffeinated earl grey, Herbal infusions, Chamomile, Peppermint, Mint verbena

House smoked salmon mousseline on Boston brown bread
Chicken, tomato and spring onion salad on sour dough bread
Pink grapefruit crab and dill salad in a phyllo tart
English cucumber and pimento, cheese brioche
