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.

Tea is served in individual French presses. My peach blossom white tea was so fragrant, I was savoring its taste before my first sip!

Curd, preserves and cream for scones at Four Seasons Atlanta afternoon tea
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.
