Inspired by the masterpiece British television drama on PBS, the Downton Abbey Tea invites guests to celebrate a traditional Afternoon Tea as it was in times gone past. The tea service includes traditional English cuisine such as scones with clotted cream, watercress cucumber salad, Yorkshire chicken salad, but also Downton Abbey themed items such as Thomas Barrows smoked salmon.
Guests can choose from a variety of teas including the new, Hotel du Pont Centennial Blend, a hearty black tea infused with hints of pineapple, the symbol of hospitality.
Prepare for the Season 3 Premiere on Sunday January 6, 2013 with a special afternoon tea including a live harpist, lace linens, and staff dressed in period costume. On this day only, guests are also encouraged to wear early 1900’s Period Dress.
