We'd all like to live in a world where a trip to London is literally a piece of cake, but while we wait for our fortunes to explode, here's the next best thing: A fancy afternoon tea in Washington. Yup, it's a real thing!

The Evergreen State is full of surprises. While we'd all like to get touristy at the Space Needle, take selfies at the Gum Wall, and eat our way through Pike Place Market, who would have thought that an elegant tea ritual is one of the most sought-after soirees?
