The Best Afternoon Tea Philadelphia Can Offer

A Traditional Afternoon Tea in the Mary Cassatt Tea Room

‘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 the age-old tradition of afternoon tea, Philadelphia-style. 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 an accompaniment, enjoy a selection of delightfully inspired and perfectly delicate sweets and savories with a view to seasonal ingredients and pairings with the wonderful teas served at The Rittenhouse's acclaimed tea room, Philadelphia’s best.
