Fancy a cuppa? Head to one of these five hotels for a delicious spot of afternoon tea.

 

Park Hyatt Tokyo

Head to the birthplace of extravagant tea rituals — Japan. The Park Hyatt Tokyo hosts guests at its 41st-floor Peak Lounge inside the Shinjuku Tower. Sip your tea while enjoying views of Mt. Fuji in the distance. The leaves are picked just 300 miles away from a plot of land the hotel owns.

 

The Lowell

In New York City, visit the recently revamped Pembroke Room, where an on-site tea sommelier can take down your tastes for a recommendation true to you. The tea is sourced from French purveyor Dammann Frères and served alongside tea sandwiches, caviar blinis, scones and macarons.

 

The Bloomsbury

Of course, tea and England go hand in hand. Visit Dalloway Terrace for seasonal tea offerings both comforting and familiar (think English Peppermint) and exotic (2nd Flush Muscatel, harvested in the Indian Himalayas, anyone?). The heated patio is covered, but to keep the chill out a bit more, guests receive hot water bottles and wool blankets to cozy up.

 

Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

This property serves up a special tea time in celebration of its 100th birthday. The afternoon tea goes all pink, with raspberry-filled white truffles, wild berry tea Turkish delight and pink pavlova. The Mount Nelson Tea blend features six teas and rose petals harvested on-site.

 

Royal Mansour

Lastly, try a traditional Moroccan afternoon tea with a selection of sweet pastries, Moroccan pancakes and other local fare. It’s all served up by the hotel’s pastry chef.
