A new tradition has begun. Afternoon Tea at Hotel deluxe debuted in Portland on Tuesday, December 1st under the direction of the hotel’s tea sommelier, Kaitlin Dover.
Marrying the elegance of the English tradition with the kind of creative collaboration emblematic of the Portland experience, Afternoon Tea at Hotel deluxe will feature custom-blended teas from Smith Teamaker; tableside a la carte cocktail service from Portland’s expert cocktail curators, Bull in China; and a traditional menu of tea sandwiches, house-made scones, pastries by Petite Provence and assorted truffles by Moonstruck Chocolates.
Afternoon Tea is priced at $39 for adults, $18 for children age 12 and under (excluding gratuity) and will be served Sunday- Thursday with seatings available at 3 p.m., 3:15 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. The 90-minute experience can be enhanced with a glass of bubbly for $6 or something strong from the roving cocktail cart at a la carte prices.
Everything is prepared to order, so we do ask for reservations to be made by Friday for Sunday and Monday bookings and noon one day prior for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
