My camera apparently thinks the chair was more important to focus on than me.
Ambiance - This tea is held in the lobby of a hotel. It's a fancy lobby, of a fancy hotel....but it's still a lobby. It's just not what one is looking for in a quiet afternoon of chatting.
Waitstaff - Nothing noteworthy either way.
Savory - Large portions, and good. Not outstanding, but not bad, either.
Sweet - I was really shocked by how...strange the sweet goods were. There was a weird mousse-cream hybrid that was just off, and the others were simply okay. I had expected to be blown away after my experience at the chocolate bar, and frankly, hoping that tea would be a perfect blend of desserts sans the DJ experience. In fact, we went up to where the dessert bar had been, and there's a lovely sitting room that's light an airy, and a much better place to hold an afternoon tea. But instead...strange pastries in the lobby.
Scones, clotted cream, and jam - Really, really good clotted cream. The scones and clotted cream were the highlight of the tea. And the scones were hot and well-insulated to maintain their freshness.
Tea quality - The breakfast blend was good.
Cost - $36 per person, served daily from 2-7 pm
Overall - To me, the lackluster desserts and the lobby ambiance make it lower on my priority list for teas. That said, the fact that they offer afternoon tea service from 2-7 pm every day does make it the most widely-accessible tea in Boston. I think it's a good option if you're constrained by time, but otherwise, I'd choose somewhere else.
