The Plaza Hotel is one of my favorite places. Prior to my viewing of the Clark Family Auction at Christie's, I met Marta from Baker's and Artists for tea. I had tea here a few years ago during the Christmas holiday and it was wonderful. I was curious if it was going to still be as good.
These photos were actually from my phone, I kind of didn't want to pull out the big camera. Most of them came out pretty good which shocks me how great camera phones can be. I am now using the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and I just love it. My tea of choice was the Tuscan Pear Rooibus which was so tasty.
We selected the Fitzgerald Tea, which pays tribute to The Plaza's most legendary patrons, F Scott and Zelda. The one thing I remembered about the tea before was that the food you had was quite a plenty. Some of these teas the sandwiches are not very filling. I have had some teas where after an hour I was hungry again! This did not happen here, for sure!
The scones were tiny, and I hate to say a bit dry, but so they were. I love a good scone, and they should be moist and tender.
Some of the largest sandwiches you will have at a tea. Very tasty as well, egg salad - salmon- turkey - cucumber -
A very lovely setting here, real silverware to be used and it was a pretty filled place on a Saturday. Some folks were having lunch as well which looked pretty good to me!
Another shot of some of the sandwiches. They were oh so good!
By the time we were ready for dessert, we were actually pretty full. That opera cake was calling me however so that was one of the little guys I enjoyed!
Lovely presentation, great atmosphere and overall very tasty food. I would highly recommend anyone to have tea here. It is a wonderful experience in one of the most iconic places in New York City.
