Putting on the Ritz…

July 18, 2012 by Carolina

The Ritz-Carlton tea that is! By now you guys know Katie & I love our tea time; we love having afternoon tea! In Cape Town we enjoyed fabulous tea at the Mount Nelson Hotel. In Detroit, Katie experienced tea at the historic Whitney Mansion. This past weekend I took a few birthday girls out to tea at the Ritz-Carlton in town to enjoy delicious afternoon tea.

From the moment you walk into the Ritz-Carlton Orlando you’re surrounded with beauty; the lobby is gorgeous. We made our way to the tea service where a table was set & waiting for us. We had a choice to pick from a traditional or royal tea service; the traditional tea service came with your choice of a pot of tea plus an assortment of danishes & sandwiches for the table to share while the royal tea included all that plus a glass of champagne. We all opted to have the traditional tea & after reviewing the menu made our decisions. My friends went with the pear caramel tea, the detox tea (featuring a mix of peppermit spices) & the bombai tea. I went with the chocolate chip truffle tea which smelled of all the chocolate goodness in the world & tasted just as good.

We began tea service by each enjoying a cup then dived into the wonderful assortment of treats on the table: cucumber & egg sandwiches, ham, cheese & salmon sandwiches for our meat-eating friends, poppy seed biscuits with lemon creme & an assortment of delicious danishes — everything was absolutely delicious!

After tea we took a stroll to the beautiful pool, then made our way to the lake & laid on the large hammocks the hotel offers. In all, a perfect afternoon! Make sure to check out the Ritz-Carlton Orlando for tea next time you’re out with your girlfriends, are looking for a great place to hold a shower (there was a wedding shower happening when we were there), or just want some time to experience a wonderful cup of tea & danishes.

Have you ever done afternoon tea? If so, where? We’re always looking for new places to try!
