Afternoon Tea at Chelsea Physic Garden

I had a fantastic afternoon at Chelsea Physic Garden today. We went on a guided tour of the garden and then had a walk around the garden ourselves. The garden is the oldest botanic garden in London founded by the Society of Apothcaries in 1673 and unsurprisingly I loved the edible part of the garden.

Then, we had afternoon tea, my second of the week! We got pots of tea and I had hot chocolate as well as water with mint for the table.

The savouries were smoked salmon, cucumber and egg sandwiches and a sundried tomato and goat's cheese quiche. All of which were delicious.

One of the highlights of tea were the lavender scones with clotted cream and jam, which were fantastic. We then had lemon drizzle cake, brownie, and orange and almond cake. The orange and almond cake was so moist and the brownie lovely and squidgy in the middle.

I would totally recommend a visit to Chelsea Physic Garden and the afternoon tea. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
