An Elegant Afternoon Tea at La Galerie

As a belated Christmas present, my husband and I took my parents out for afternoon tea. Since their visit to Paris was a special occasion, it was only fitting that it be celebrated properly.

Tea time at the George V has a wonderful reputation, and after experiencing it firsthand, I can without a doubt give my seal of approval for their presentation.

From 3-6pm each day, guests are whisked into the lap of luxury. Every detail is seen to, making customer enjoyment a priority.

Upon stepping into La Galerie, ornate tapestries and chandeliers are a feast for the eyes. Plush couches with freshly fluffed pillows invite you to leave your worries at the door and relax for a while.

Tea is served to your liking, allowing you to test it beforehand like a fine wine. A 3-tiered platter full of fresh sandwiches, scones and pastries is brought out to let you leisurely dine.

 Each time our tea ran low, our delicate china cups were neatly refilled. The table was kept immaculate until the moment we received the bill.

Extra attention to my husband’s birthday also came as a surprise. When he received a special cake and rendition of “Happy Birthday” from the pianist, he couldn’t believe his eyes.

10 out of 10 for this elegant afternoon. I hope to find a reason to return again very soon.
