Tea Time on Kauai

Yes, this tea lady went to afternoon tea on Kauai.
The only tea experience I could find was at the St. Regis Hyatt hotel in Princeville, Kauai, HI.
The view sitting by the window was spectacular.
The presentation was lovely.
The savories were a grill squash and red pepper sandwich, curry chicken in a pastry shell, and smoked salmon with a very thin slice of cucumber, cream cheese and salmon row on top.
My tea was an English Breakfast tea.
Our table was covered with food, as there was also a plate with 3 scones and 2 sweet breads,
plus a small plate with 2 biscottis and 2 cookies.  With the scones there was also lemon curd,
raspberry jam, and marscapone.
Then there was dessert: pistachio and mango macarons, lemon tart, cream puff, chocolate tart, blueberry tart, and not sure what kind of tart with coconut.
There was so much we took a lot of the sweets back to our condo and everyone enjoyed in the evening.
Here is the very happy tea lady to have had afternoon tea in Hawaii.

I love being a tea lady on vacation and finding time for tea.

I wished I had known this was there when we were in Kauai. I had a lot of free time since hubby got badly sunburned, but then my last two days I came down with the flu. :( But it was beautiful and I loved the red dirt. Still have stains from it.
Looks like you're having a relaxing time.

Oh my, that is one of the most elegant tea presentations I've ever seen! So glad you found time for afternoon tea on your trip, and I can't wait to hear more about it!

I would expect nothing less of a tea lady! But what an embarrassment of riches (or rich treats, as the case may be!). I wouldn't be able to fit into my traveling clothes after all that -- and I wouldn't care, either!

Lovely, lovely you in Hawaii!
Glad it's fun and tea looked awesome.

We're off the ship now and in Bath, England - so fabulous and weather is perfect. To London tomorrow for a few days then flying home.

Love and hugs - Mary

Hi, Marilyn! So lovely to catch up with you after our travels! We go back a few days ago after a wonderful time with family and days out & about. :o) Look at you in Hawaii--so exciting! And tea in Hawaii looks especially festive! Those petite desserts are gorgeous... *swoon*... We had tea at sweet little tea room while away. will post. They offered breakfast & lunch as well as tea.
