Visit These 7 Charming Tea Rooms In Arizona For A Piece Of The Past
Are you looking for a place in Arizona to celebrate a special occasion or where you can have an excuse to dress up for an elegant meal? How does sitting down for afternoon tea sound? Here are seven tea rooms in Arizona that will make you feel like an extra on your favorite BBC period drama.
1. Afternoon Tea at Arizona Biltmore, Phoenix
The Arizona Biltmore has had a tradition of serving afternoon tea for 87 years and that tradition is still going strong! Here, you can enjoy a hot cup of tea served with a combination of sweet and savory finger snacks in a luxurious setting. What more could you ask for?
Address: 2400 East Missouri Avenue, Phoenix
2. English Garden Tea Room & Bistro, Prescott
This delightful restaurant serves afternoon tea twice per day (at 2pm and 4pm). They offer five different selections, which include an elegant version that includes sandwiches, soup, scones served with Devonshire cream, pastries, and your choice of tea.
Address: 220 West Goodwin Street, Prescott
3. English Rose Tea Room, Carefree
This tea room is perhaps the one everyone dreams of one day entering: filled to the brim with things so wonderfully British, it’s almost a bit eccentric. Enjoy a formal afternoon tea (featured above) or pop in for a cup of soup and tea. Afterwards, you can even pose for a photo with a cutout of Her Majesty The Queen.
Address: 201 Easy Street, Carefree
4. Ro Ho En Japanese Friendship Garden, Phoenix
If you’re looking for a completely different experience, you might enjoy attending a tea ceremony at the Japanese Friendship Garden in Phoenix. Here, you can watch and participate in a traditional preparation of matcha, powdered green tea. You’ll get a chance to sample the tea, learn about the accompanying garden, and the tea house.
Address: 1125 North 3rd Avenue, Phoenix
5. Lobby Tea Court at The Phoenician Resort, Scottsdale
Voted one of the best tea rooms in the Valley, the Phoenician hosts a wonderfully elegant afternoon tea right above the resort’s golf clubhouse. Enjoy finger sandwiches, pastries, scones, and, of course, your favorite selection of tea.
Address: 6000 East Camelback Road, Scottsdale
6. Mrs. Potts Tea Party, Mesa
If you’re looking to host an unforgettable event for your child’s next birthday, you may want to consider hosting a tea party at this little tea room.
