Tea at the Plaza

Last time I tried to go, the hotel was going under its massive renovation and was left not just craving the experience but also curious about the work being performed in there. The end result is amazing and the whole experience was even better than I remembered it.

The tea menu is delicious and then you chose a set menu with different NY related names that include sandwiches and savories, scones, pastries and sweets. Additionally you get your Devonshire cream, lemon curd and preserves. 

Left to right: lemon curd, Devonshire cream and berry preserves

Green tea served in porcelain tea cups with a gold rim and silver flatware

Sandwiches and savories that included the all time classic cucumber and smoked salmon sandwiches

 Sweets and pastries including black and white cookie and chocolate filled profiteroles

If you decide to go make sure you have enough time to go and enjoy this all time tradition at one of New York's landmarks and the place where so many people go for the ultimate luxury experience.

Have a fantastic day and treat yourself to some luxury!

P.S. Seems like this thing is working now... hope it stays like that!
