Afternoon Tea at the Four Seasons in NYC

 
 
 
Afternoon Tea at the Four Seasons Lobby Lounge in New York City
July 2007
This tea service was a little different because
we were given a menu of 5 savories, 5 sweets,
and a selection of teas. 
We were told to choose a total of 6 savories and sweets
and a loose-leaf tea.
In addition, each guest was served a scone with
marmalade and Devonshire cream.
The scone had a sugar es-wash topping, almost
like a meringue and was yummy!
Our selections were served uniquely plated.
The photo of the plate is mine.  I chose more savories
than sweets.  I prefer non-sweets therefore I liked the idea of choosing
selections from the menu.
The tea pots were set on the table for us to refill our own
cups.  The loose tea had been brewed in t-sacs.
The server refilled our pots with hot water at least twice each.
That's a lot of tea!

The Four Seasons certainly does a good job with presentation - the food looks delicious.

I've really been enjoying your posts on all the wonderful spots that you've taken tea.

I love that your guys are so well-educated in all things tea and quite comfortable in tearooms!

Thanks, Angela. AJ has been going to afternoon tea since he was 11 months old. GJ got hooked on afternoon tea in England in 1998.
