Afternoon Tea in the Mary Cassatt Tea Room
A Traditional Afternoon Tea in Absolute Luxury
‘There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.’
- Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady
Amidst the rush of urban life, Afternoon Tea at the Mary Cassatt Tea Room offers an intimate daily escape and the continuance of an age-old tradition. With beautifully prepared leaf teas at its heart, this Philadelphia tea room celebrates the traditions of the great tea cultures, adding a dash of local flavor and some exquisitely re-imagined elements. The tea selection spans the world, from tisanes of local herbs and flowers to grand black and green teas of Asia. As accompaniment, Executive Chef Jon Cichon at Lacroix has crafted a selection of delightfully inspired and perfectly delicate sweets and savories with a view to seasonal ingredients and pairings with the wonderful teas.
