Thursday Afternoon Tea in DC or Rockville?

rabidog Sep 13, 2006 03:50 PM


We're looking for an upscale tea service on a Thursday afternoon, 3 or 4pm in DC, Rockville or anywhere in between. Any suggestions? Alternatively, any upscale mid-afternoon lounging, snacking & dessert place would work.

Apparently the Willard, Mandarin Oriental and Hay-Adams can't accommodate - weekend service only, holiday service only, and no tea service at all, respectively.

    Try the Four Seasons in Georgetown, Mayflower Hotel or Henley Park Hotel downtown and any of the Ritz Carltons (e.g., West End)

      Hi there,
      Try the Hillwood Museum at 202-243-3920. It is a beautiful estate in DC that has lovely gardens and a nice tea service for special parties

        Here is a link to a directory called Teamap


        It lists where all the afternoon tea shops are by zip code. I went to the Serenity Tea Room and it was divine but it is in Frederick, MD.

          Ritz Carlton. Love it for drinks.

            I believe the Four Seasons has a daily tea.

              What about the Park Hyatt? Article in today's Wash Post

                OK so I looked again and it is on some Wednesdays and some Thursdays, so take a look at their schedule. It looks very interesting.

                  If you're will to go to Tysons Corner, I believe the Ritz Carlton hotel in Tysons has afternoon tea service.

                      Have you checked the schedule for Strathmore. I know they have an afternoon tea but not sure when it is.
