I did a lot of research and made several phone calls to try to locate tea rooms in and near Austin. After driving all day on Sunday to Fredericksburg, Luckenbach and the Hill Country and GJ's meeting schedule, I made afternoon tea reservations at the lovely Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Austin for Monday. Afternoon Tea is served in The Lobby Lounge.
This was the guys first experience of using a "tea press" which in my opinion, looked more like a French coffee press than the traditional teapot shaped tea press.
The delicious afternoon tea was served on a traditional three tier server. See the link or the photo of the menu above to read the descriptions of the menu items.
Texas wildflowers were used in this lovely arrangement in the lobby of the Austin Four Seasons.
