Preview of New Royal High Tea & Tour at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald

I've always enjoyed having high tea. I'm reminded of the Chinese Ha Mm Cha (afternoon tea) that I had when I was growing up in Toronto. When I think of the British High tea, what appeals to me is that you get to dress up as it's usually a more formal event, there are finger sandwiches and small bite-sized desserts. 

There are only a few places in Edmonton to have British-style high tea. Among them, The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald has served afternoon high tea in the Harvest Room. The Fairmont currently has two different types of high tea: a weekday high tea and a high tea with a tour of the hotel on the weekends (called the Royal Tea and Tour). On previous occasions when I had High Tea served in the Fairmont Harvest Room it concluded with a historic tour of the hotel; including the Queen Elizabeth II suite. This suite is the same suite that the Queen stays at when she visits Edmonton. I was recently invited to preview the Royal High Tea served in the Queen Elizabeth II suite.
