January is National Hot Tea Month, so we’ve rounded up some of the best spots in town to grab a cuppa and enjoy the cherished, centuries-old tradition of afternoon tea.

Afternoon Tea Under the Palms

The Boca Raton Resort and Club hosts afternoon tea in the modern and stylish Palm Court every day for resort guests and club members. Whether you sip on the single origin, Sri Lankan loose leaf teas of Dilmah, or opt for something bubbly like prosecco, sparkling rose, or champagne, Palm Court is a lovely place to meet up with friends and family. Their menu includes savory bites such as miniature blue crab roll, smoked salmon summer rolls, warm cheddar biscuits with shaved prosciutto, and more, as well as freshly baked scones, parfaits, macaroons, handmade truffles, and chocolate tarts. ($50 per person)

Every day through April 16, the Flagler Museum’s Café des Beaux-Arts offers a glimpse of the elegant entertaining of the Gilded Age with an Afternoon Tea that celebrates the beloved tradition. Guests will enjoy gourmet tea sandwiches, traditional scones, and other sweet treats, as well as a tea blend created for Flagler Museum – the Whitehall Special Blend. Tea is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday, and 12-3 p.m. on Sunday. Advance purchase of tickets is recommended.
