Poetry would be entirely composed of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Say what meter and rhyme cannot with today's Groupon: for $10, you get Victorian high tea at Saint James Tea Room in historical Georgetown (a $19.50 value).
Regally appointed with Victorian-era décor and blush tones, Saint James Tea Room furnishes guests with flavorful teas and savory morsels to complement the elegant atmosphere. Settle into the sophisticated experience with unlimited tea, coffee, or lemonade and a miscellany of 12 home-crafted noshables such as a freshly plucked fruit dish and delicate cucumber sandwiches. Deviled eggs tempt taste buds, and meat pies and spinach-bacon tartlets add a dainty twist to carnivorous appetites. Reach subtly but determinedly for helpings of baked goods such as cream cheese and apricot scones, raspberry madelines, and the historic black-walnut cookies hailing from turn-of-the-century squirrel-manned tree ovens. Sweet-tooth owners will continue their foray into the dessert realm with fresh fruit tarts, chocolate rum cups, and a white chocolate cameo medallion that doubles as an edible brooch ideal for nibbling on during parlor-game night.
High-tea participants will also receive one free photo of their group to commemorate their nostalgic experience and allow the well-behaved ghosts a chance to strike their most dignified poses.
