Real-Life Bridgerton: Enjoy High Tea At These US Tearooms
Coffee has consistently ranked as the most popular drink in the US, even more than soda and bottled water. But don’t sleep on a good cup of tea.
For thousands of years the hot herbal drink has been touted for it’s calming effect and other health benefits. And no one does tea like the Brits, particularly High Tea.
The British tradition involves sitting down for an afternoon tea along with other goodies like sandwiches, scones, jams, and cake. The custom was typically reserved for the wealthy class in the 19th century (aka Bridgerton era) but is now much more accessible across the pond.
Here are a few spots in the US to sip a cup and enjoy the full High Tea experience.
This one will cost a pretty penny but tea time at The Living Room features an extensive menu of teas from your standard Earl Grey and English Breakfast to the more exotic Tropical Peninsula. The presentation is exquisite.
Tea is served in The French Room along with an assortment of light finger foods including house made savory sandwiches, scones, cakes, Raspberry Macarons, Orange Cardamom Shortbread and Fudge & Ganache Tart.
The pretty pink egg-shaped room was inspired by the famous Faberge jewel boxes. The hot menu features Fig and Apple Tartelette, Prosciutto, Marinated Portabella Toast, and Triple Cream Brie. Storey Farm Deviled Egg, Bacon Lardon, Blue Crab and Sweet Corn Salad, are available if a cold selection is more your style. There is also a children’s tea for the tots.
