If there is one quintessential Victoria experience, it’s taking afternoon tea. This was, after all, one of the most English of all cities in the vast British Empire, and many of the colonial traditions linger to this day. These days tea might mean a tea-flavored cocktail like the 1908 at the Bengal Lounge, or it might mean the tea-infused spa treatments at Silk Road Tea, where you can also pick up loose-leaf blends created by tea master Daniela Cubelic. But for a proper afternoon tea, with all the scones and finger sandwiches you can stand, try one of the following places.
