Afternoon Tea in Boston

While in Boston for the weekend, one of the things I was most excited about was experiencing Afternoon Tea at the Four Seasons with my friend B. Boston’s kinda famous for tea, right?


I mean, seriously. A+ for cream and sugar presentation. I couldn’t get over how cute those baby jars of honey were. And the rock candy. With so many Afternoon Tea establishments including packets of aspartame and the pink stuff (sick.) on the table, I was highly impressed with this set up: and it only got better.

And here’s the gluten free Afternoon Tea. The scone and the mozzarella, pesto + tomato sandwiches were delicious. I wasn’t particularly hungry, so that’s really all I tried. If there had been some sort of baked sweet treat, I probably could have found room, but I definitely didn’t need it.

 Great company, crisp bubbles, hot tea, delectable treats, and a view of Boston Common: a royally sweet afternoon.
