Afternoon Tea | The Peninsula New York

Saturday, March 22, 2014 0 No tags Permalink 0

The current afternoon tea at Peninsula New York

…is looking (and tasting!) pretty amazing. 

Let’s start with bubbles…

…and pots of tea. Darjeeling for me, and Jasmine for Jee

How perfect are these sandwiches?

Cucumber, cream cheese, and mint on whole wheat.

Egg salad on brioche.

Scottish smoked salmon and American caviar on pumpernickel.

Roast beef with horseradish cream on whole grain.

And a mini “bonus” sandwich in the center ^_^

Another cup…

…and then on to the scones!

Two each, super moist and delicate with lemon curd and Devonshire cream…

…and raspberry jam and apricot preserves.  

Pace yourself, because desserts are next!

There’s lemon-raspberry tarts topped with baby meringues.

A roasted hazelnut cake…

…and carrot cake-cream cheese sandwich. 

Dark chocolate sponge and the lightest mousse. Saved the best for last ^_^

P.S. Compare and contrast with afternoon tea at The Peninsula Chicago. Also can’t wait for The Peninsula Paris to open in August! I can only imagine what the tea service would be like…
