Erawan Tea Room

Most opulent afternoon teas around the world

Living in a nation completely devoted to tea it is easy to forget that outside of our island there are many locations overflowing with great places serving up some excellent afternoon tea. Though high tea is a quintessentially English tradition, dating back to the 1840's, many other countries offer some great tea rooms that really rival our own.

Regardless of how you pronounce scone, afternoon tea is something we can all enjoy. So sit back, relax and join us as we take a look at the best places in the world to have afternoon tea.

Eastern & Oriental, Penang, Malaysia
Macaroons

Penang is traditionally one of the best places for Malaysian food, but hidden inside the Eastern & Oriental is one of the best teas rooms you’ll find on any continent. Here you can indulge is a range of both western style and traditional Asian teas while sampling one of the E&O’s many delicious finger sandwiches and sweets. Just one of many reasons to book a holiday in Malaysia, but almost enough to justify it alone!

Tea & Sympathy, New York

If you though New York was all coffee and bagels then think again, Tea & Sympathy has been serving up a great brew for years. This New York tea house also serves up some of the best scones around, as well as a brilliant Earl Grey.

Erawan Tea Room, Thailand
