Afternoon Tea at the Waldorf Astoria

A definite highlight of our girls’ weekend in Las Vegas was afternoon tea. The Waldorf Astoria tea lounge is located on the 23rd floor, with a view over the famous strip.

Service was warm and efficient, run like a well-oiled machine. After choosing our teas (Mad Hatter’s Tea Party for Stephanie, and Flowery Earl Grey for me), we were left to chat and get comfortable.

Stephanie also ordered herself a glass of Ruinart Rosé Champagne, which was a nice addition. I was on medication so sadly couldn’t join her.

On the menu..

Tea Sandwiches

Porchetta Sandwich (Brie cream and apple compote on white bread) | Gougère (spinach and mushroom filling) | Salmon Sandwich (cucumber, capers and cream cheese on marble rye bread) | Chicken Sandwich (curry chicken, pecans and Boston Bibb lettuce on an hoagie roll)

Freshly Baked Signature Scones

Accompanied by Devonshire Cream, strawberry preserves and lemon curd.

Tea Desserts

Canelé (Tahitian vanilla, rum custard) | Chocolate Passion Tart (passion fruit gel, crunchy chocolate pearl, chocolate mousse) | Strawberry Choux (white chocolate cream, strawberry crémeux) | Pistachio Macaron (pistachio ganache)

I’m a big fan of afternoon tea, and would have to say that the Waldorf Astoria puts on one of the nicest I’ve experienced.

It was such a lovely time catching up with Stephanie over tea and delicious finger foods. We don’t see each other nearly as often as I’d like. I look forward to our next tea for two.
