California, Florida, New York rank first among the top 10 states for afternoon tea; New York City, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. are top destinations for afternoon tea lovers.
Destination Tea compiled the country’s first comprehensive online afternoon tea directory showing which U.S. states and cities are home to the greatest number of afternoon tea venues. Culling data from its 50 state afternoon tea directories, Destination Tea’s new infographic report, “The United States of Afternoon Tea,” gives a first look at the American world of afternoon tea, including when and where Americans go to tea, the average cost, and popular American afternoon tea themes.
“Because the tradition of afternoon tea, (sometimes referred to as “high tea” in the U.S.) — which includes savory bites, scones with spreads, mini desserts and of course, tea — is a leisurely meal, it is the perfect scrumptious prescription for slowing down to reconnect with friends and family,” said founder Angela Renals. “Unfortunately, online searches for afternoon tea often omit venues without a strong online presence or which are not actual tearooms (i.e., museums, gardens, etc.). Destination Tea intends to bridge this information gap with our primary research and detailed directories.”
