Afternoon Tea at The Brown Palace Hotel, Denver

 Afternoon Tea at The Brown Palace Hotel in Denver ranks among our favorites!  
A traditional tea is served in the beautiful Atrium Lobby of this historic hotel.  
 The tea menu included a selection of 12 teas and 3 herbal infusions.
Austin selected the Organic Jasmine Fragrant Cloud Tea, Glenn had a
caffeine free English Breakfast.
I chose the Organic Brown Palace Crown Jewel,
described as: " A special blend of Assam ~ a nice tippy leaf with a malty bright flavor,
 and Ceylon ~ a light, high grown leaf with a pungent, brisk flavor. This combination
creates a rich full bodied tea exclusive to The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa."
 We each ordered the Brown Palace Signature Tea
which was brought to our table on a three-tier server. 
 The first course, warm scones, were on the bottom,
served with clotted cream and strawberry jam.  




The sandwiches included Traditional English Cucumber,  
Curried Egg Salad, and Turkey with Sun Dried Tomatoes.  
The server asked if we wanted more sandwiches and brought
a second serving.
 The Pastries were served on the top tier. 
 I was so excited to be served a delicious Gluten Free tea plate, 
shown in the photo below!  It was delicious! 

 Glenn and Austin thoroughly enjoyed this afternoon tea service. 
 Afternoon tea is a long time tradition at the Brown Palace Hotel. 


We also enjoyed an overnight at this beautiful hotel.  
If we return to Denver, we hope to stay here again.  

Later, we enjoyed a delicious dinner at the award winning
 Palace Arms where we shared Bananas Foster for dessert.

Yes - a favorite experience for me too! I love the glass ceiling in this room as you look up that lets in light! Was so glad you visited here where MOLLY BROWN took tea!

Having lived in Colorado ALL my life, I should visit and have tea here! When I go to Denver to see my daughter we are always so busy running around doing things and trying to cram everything in. Thanks for sharing your outing!♥♫

What a treat to stay at the Brown Palace and have tea. When my in-laws lived near Denver we took my mother-in-law for tea, it is quite a delightful occasion and the surroundings are beautiful.
