Afternoon Tea in Wedgwood Tearoom

After days and days of having Taiwanese street food, we decided to have a change of taste and went for a fancy afternoon tea session. It was rather impromptu really, since we had a free day of shopping and happened to be in Sogo. While window-shopping, we somehow ended up on the 9th floor, and…
