  1. I love the elegance and ceremony of Afternoon Tea. The Omni King Edward does it beautifully! Thank you for the this wonderful chance 😀

  2. Any tea that I’m enjoying with my mom is my favourite kind! This would be such a nice event to take her to. The Mountain Berry Tea pictured above looks delightful! 🙂

  3. I love the Omni King Edward Hotel, such a beautiful & gracious buiding. Love the history and stories passed down within my family. Afternoon Tea here would be divine!

  4. I like something that has fruit flavours added to it that is all natural in origin. And I do like a classic orange pekoe tea.

  5. My favourite tea has to be English or Irish Breakfast. I love them both so much that I can’t choose between the two!

  6. I love Creamsicle tea…anyone who hasn’t had a chance to try it yet- definitely should! It has a sweet taste but at the same time is very soothing. Also has surprising health benefits too 🙂

  7. My cupboard always has a classic Earl Grey! Can’t go wrong with it. I also have decaf for the evening so I don’t stay up too late!
