☕️ Afternoon tea in Manchester

#manchestertrip Embarking on an afternoon tea adventure at the Richmond Tea Room in Manchester is like stepping into a portal that whisks you away to a realm of refined British indulgence, where whimsy meets tradition in a delightful collision of flavors and flair. The moment you pass through the ornate doorway, you find yourself immersed in an atmosphere that oozes charm. The rich tapestries, vintage furniture, and playful decor transport you to a bygone era, one where afternoon tea was a celebrated ritual rather than a fleeting luxury. Seated in this whimsical wonderland, you can't help but feel a surge of British pride. The scent of brewing tea wafts through the air, invoking a sense of tradition that stretches across generations. You become a character in a Jane Austen novel, savoring the anticipation of a dainty teatime feast. The menu, an ode to culinary sophistication, unfolds like a literary masterpiece. Delicate finger sandwiches, adorned with classic fillings, kickstart the symphony of flavors. The scones, fresh and warm, offer a buttery dance with clotted cream and jam—a quintessentially British pas de deux. As you lift your teacup, adorned with delicate floral patterns, you become part of a centuries-old ritual. The rich brew dances on your palate, and you're reminded that in this haven of elegance, you're not just having tea; you're indulging in a cultural experience. The whimsical touch doesn't end with the food. The teapot cozies sport eccentric designs, and the staff, dressed in period-inspired attire, add a dash of theatricality to the affair. It's a performance where tea is the star, and you're the delighted audience
