Shave Ice and Afternoon Tea on the Agenda

Waioli Tea Room (Honolulu, Hawai’i)

It’s decided! Hawai’i in the summer and Southern China for a family vacation. In Hawai’i, I am most looking forward to:

1. Shave Ice on a daily basis.

2. Afternoon Tea, all the time! The photo at top is Waioli Tea Room in Manoa, and this photo is from Moana Surfrider. Beautiful right? Afternoon tea in Hawai’i always feels so magical. Both photos were taken a few years ago – can’t wait to revisit these tea spots as well as other favourites: the Halekulani, Tea at 1024 and Kahala Hotel. A Cup of Tea opened in Kailua a few years ago…has anyone gone there yet?

Happy Sunday :)

    Haven't been to A Cup of Tea; have been to most of the others – very enjoyable!

    A Cup of Tea is tucked away in a building on a side street in Kailua so it doesn't have the same outdoor ambiance and view as the hotels, but the food and tea selection are good and the service friendly. Their sorbet at the end is always my favorite part–the flavor changes but it is always yummy. ;-)
