Hawaii Mom Blog: Afternoon Tea at the Halekulani

Afternoon Tea at the Halekulani

Recently Honolulu Magazine listed the Halekulani as one of the best afternoon teas in Honolulu.  So naturally, favoring all things fancy, I had to go!  The Halekulani offers three types of tea service daily from 3pm in their Veranda and at Orchids.  Seating is limited on the elegant Veranda so if you don't arrive early enough, you may be seated at Orchids, which is just as beautiful with open air seating and ocean and diamond head views.  

I was lucky enough to have afternoon tea twice this month, once at Orchids and the second time on the Veranda.  The menu is the same with the exception that the Halekulani blend is not offered at Orchids and they use the same settings from the restaurant.  You'll get the floral tea cup settings on the Veranda.  Other than that, it is the same fine selection of teas.  I highly recommend getting the blueberry rooibos iced for these hot summer days.

Afternoon tea is such a relaxing and refined experience and to share it with family and friends makes it unbeatable.  One of the better ways to end any day. 
Halekulani offers three tea services: classic, champagne and celebratory.  Also on the menu, coffees and wines.
You can smell the fragrant teas before making your selection.

The scones and muffins are paired with amazing housemade Kula strawberry preserves and lemon curd.
The tea smells wonderful.

The tea spread is visually stunning.
The decadent desserts.

The savory sandwiches.
The gorgeous view from Orchids.
