Tea service was a cherished tradition at The St. Regis New York when it first opened in 1904, and it is still an important part of today’s St. Regis experience. Afternoon tea features teas from around the world, including a special St. Regis blend, and is served with savory tea sandwiches and three tiers of sweet treats – freshly baked scones with double Devonshire cream, red fruit preserves and lemon curd and assorted tea cakes and tarts. The Astor Court also offers a champagne tea, which includes a glass of Laurent Perrier champagne.
The Astor Court in The St. Regis New York serves afternoon tea seven days a week between 3 and 5 p.m. If you’re thinking of indulging in afternoon tea, we suggest you make a reservation well in advance. The Astor Court tea — with its freshly baked scones and clotted cream — is a popular destination. The classic tea costs $55 per person or $70 per person with champagne. It’s an iconic New York City experience that you won’t want to miss. For an even more memorable tea, plan to take tea from Wednesday through Sunday when music from a harpist fills the room.
