Destination Tea Notes: Hostess Doria Roberts takes afternoon tea seriously and consequently she expects you to be on time and read your menu. Just do it, knowing that the payoff is a completely spot-on, sumptuous afternoon tea. Doria may have given me a “Hello? It’s clearly printed on your menu” look when I was surprised to find out we had another course coming (the Digestiv), but I would gladly forego a super-solicitous host for one with Doria’s culinary prowess. This is the real deal.
