Destination Tea Notes:  While the Four Seasons Atlanta is chic and lovely inside, it does not rest on its ambiance laurels, but rather follows through with on-point baking, creative twists on the traditional, and knowledgeable service. By the end of our visit, Michael had dubbed our server a “teatender,” a title she fully earned by presenting the table with a grand finale tasting of her personal wellness blend, which had the instant effect of making us breathe clearer. The Four Seasons’ pastry chefs change the menu seasonally and were graciously accommodating of food allergies in our group.

The foyer’s grand staircase leads you to Park 75 restaurant, where tea is served.
Our table sat in a quiet, enclosed room opposite the restaurant bar.

Tea Service

Each guest chooses one tea and may choose another later in the meal.
Tea is served in individual French presses. My peach blossom white tea was so fragrant, I was savoring its taste before my first sip!

Scones & Spreads, Savories and Sweets

The afternoon tea tray offerings are plentiful and pretty.
It may be in poor taste to ask to take home unfinished spreads, but I just couldn’t stand to see these gourmet delicacies go to waste: housemade lemon custard, chantilly cream and peach chutney. SO good!
Southern shortcake scones were the right amount of soft and moist without being cakey.
Tea sandwiches included cucumber with watercress, curry chicken salad (a favorite), ham with honey mustard (very good) and egg salad with truffle mayonnaise.
Desserts included fruit tart, banana chocolate truffle,espresso macaron, raspberry butter cookie, raspberry tea cake and chocolate-dipped strawberry. Decadent!
