Meet friends for Afternoon Tea and enjoy the wonderful selection of single note and blended teas. Try the popular Rittenhouse Blend, created with Ceylon bergamot, rose petals, cardamom and borage. Select tea blends include Marry Me Again, composed of ceylon, violets, lavender and corn flowers, Duchess’ First Love, a creamy Earl Gray blended with rooibos, and Wedding Chai, a black tea stirred with vanilla and cardamom pods.

For the purists, the single note teas include Floral Jasmine Green, a Chinese green tea scented with jasmine flowers, Lychee Congou, a rare and exotic Chinese black tea from the Congou region, and Imperial Oolong, sourced from 14 gardens and slightly floral with rich woodsy notes. Awaken your senses with the classic Irish Breakfast, with bold and rich Assam and East African teas mixed for an intense flavor. And Afternoon Tea offers something for everyone, including organic infusions, iced teas and French Press coffees.
