Afternoon tea in DC-MD-N VA

Hey folks, I indulged in afternoon tea last Friday in the gorgeous lobby of the historic Jefferson Hotel in Richmond. It was only $14.50 & it got me thinking to go back & compile a list of tea rooms & hotels that serve high or full tea in the afternoons. If you visit this link:
