The Langham has started a traditional British afternoon tea service, and British Consul General Susie Kitchens was among the VIPs invited to have a sip. Others included WGBH’s Callie Crossley, Harvard Kennedy School chief of staff Sarah Wald, the British Society’s Kathy Duffy, British American Council executive director Urszula Wojciechowska, and MIT professor Fiona Murray. The tea service, called “Tiffin at The Langham,” pays homage to the first afternoon tea served in Europe at London’s grand hotel, The Langham, in 1865. . . .
