Destination Tea Notes: Could anyone predict Music City would also become one of the United States’ top afternoon tea destinations? Nashville now has six afternoon tea options, three of which opened in the last two years. Maybe it has something to do with its current status as the country’s bachelorette capital. When the ladies need a break from late-night partying in the Lower Broadway honky tonks, an elegant, peaceful afternoon tea is the perfect antidote (speaking from personal experience ;). We went to check out the new afternoon tea service at Conrad Nashville’s Blue Aster lobby lounge, and discovered an afternoon tea not to be missed. We very much appreciate an upscale afternoon tea like this one, which attends to every detail: beautiful setting, kind and informed service, properly steeped and decanted loose leaf teas, and creative, scratchmade courses featuring the artistry of a pastry chef. And though this is billed as an afternoon tea, you’ll be happily surprised to learn it is in fact a royal tea, as it includes a glass of Laurent Perrier Champagne. Menus change here seasonally, making this a perfect place to celebrate your special occasions year-round, experiencing new treats each time.
