Destination Tea Tips: The full price afternoon tea includes a glass of bubbly, and the price is reduced if you pass on the champagne. Bring cash for the valet. If you go during the September Downton Abbey dates (spots still available Sept. 14, 15, 19-21), go in period costume (1920s) to put yourself in the running for a spa gift certificate.
Destination Tea Notes: What an affair! Whereas high-end hotel teas can sometimes underwhelm us with their afternoon tea service, our experience at the Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead is quite the opposite. Plan to spoil yourself. If you’re dieting, mark your afternoon tea date down as your cheat day, because the teas, scones and desserts are excellent here, and you will not want to miss a one. To make the occasion even more memorable, we come in for the Waldorf Astoria Atlanta Buckhead’s September Downton Abbey Tea (spots still available for Sept. 14, 15, 19-21). The hotel is celebrating the upcoming movie release with a special menu, Republic of Tea’s new line of Downton Abbey teas, prizes for best costume and passes to an advance screening of the movie for all guests. It feels like an elegant tea party, and there’s a sense of excitement as we pose for pictures in the style of Lady Mary or Lady Edith, and envision ourselves ladies taking tea a century past.
