If you happen to have an extra $100 burning a hole in your pocket go directly to the Mandarin Oriental for a traditional afternoon tea.
I don’t know how it happened, but somehow the women in my office organized this fun little outing. I had been before a few times and every time it is a treat.
Let them valet park your vehicle, there is no convenient other option. Plus, they validate and it’s certainly worth a $5 tip.
My tea of choice is Mandarin Blossoms, but I imagine you can’t go wrong with any of them.
Don’t share the egg salad and chive on croissant offering. It. Is. Fantastic. And I hate egg salad.
Be sure to add on bottomless mimosas or a pearbellini (my pick).
Most importantly, enjoy.
