My Tita Portia is really known for her Afternoon Tea Parties. She was featured in several publications such as the Philippine Panorama, Sense & Style (April 2010) and Cocoon (June-August 2010). She loves going to High Tea all over the world. She was the one who introduced me to the wonderful world of Afternoon Tea at The Author's Lounge of Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok for my birthday several years ago. Then after that, a trip to wherever is not complete without trying new places. Even here in the Philippines, we went to all the hotels that served Afternoon Tea. For me, the best was at The Peninsula, Manila.
But when it comes to serving Afternoon tea at home , nothing can beat the sumptuous and beautiful feast prepared by Tita Portia. Even the press people had wonderful things to say about it. One would not believe the labor of love my Tita puts into it. Some my say they were just little sandiwches and snacks but the preparation was really so time consuming and labor intensive.
