Afternoon Tea: Press Tea
I'm back with an afternoon tea review! Back in February, I accompanied Jee to Press Tea for afternoon tea for two. Read Jee's review here.
Reservations are required for afternoon tea at Press Tea. I chose an iced rooibos while Jee selected a hot green tea, also served in a tall glass.
After a long wait, the three-tiered tray arrived but it was worth the wait. We began with two types of scones - apricot and cranberry - which were served with clotted cream and jam. My tea was vegetarian so my sandwich was meatless. The eggplant and ramen wrap was delicious! Jee and I shared chive and cheese and mushroom and cheese turnovers. The sweets were blueberry cheesecake, two madeleines (cardamom, matcha), and a gluten-free brownie. The blueberry cheesecake is still my favorite pastry at Press Tea.
This unconventional afternoon tea service at Press Tea is priced well at $22. Make your reservation by emailing info @ presstea.com.
