Have you heard? The St. Regis offers Afternoon Tea twice a day during the holidays! Wednesdays – Sundays beginning after Thanksgiving, they have tea from 11-1 pm and then again from 3-5 pm.
I consider having Afternoon Tea pretty special any time of the year, and with all the gorgeous Christmas decorations at the hotel, it feels even more special.
Since mine was gluten free, it looked a bit different from everyone else’s, but it was every bit as wonderful. I love the St. Regis blend tea with the flavorful tea sandwiches.
They brought both regular and gluten free scones, just in case the gluten free one wasn’t edible, like last time. I’m happy to report the gluten free one was great! It tasted a lot like shortbread, and smothered with jam and Devonshire cream, I gobbled it right up.
After all that tea, sandwiches and scone, I had to stop before dessert. But don’t worry, I brought it home! Ah-mazing.
And with the holiday tea, they send you home with a mini box filled with special holiday-flavored macarons. Call soon if you want to make a reservation. The holidays are almost over!
