Some things never go out of style and there’s still a delicious pleasure in sipping a cup of tea while catching up with a friend. It doesn’t hurt when the tea comes with lavish treats and a side of champagne. Visit these local spots for the perfect setting to both drink and spill the tea. [🍷: there are alcoholic beverages offerings]

Silver Dove Afternoon Tea 🍷

Where: Downtown

The Tea Leaf

The Courtyard Tea Room 🍷

Where: Back Bay

Info: Sip and savor your tea service inside the historic and photogenic Boston Public Library building. You can tack on tea-based cocktails with a literary air about them. 


Inn at Hastings Park 🍷

Where: Lexington

Abigail’s Tea Room

Where: South Boston

Beacon Hill Books & Cafe

Bonus:


Ladyfinger Tea Lounge 🍷

Where: Newburyport

Info: This lavishly decorated all-pink tea room only hosts teas once a month (and it sells out fast) but it’s worth the wait. Did we mention tickets include an open champagne bar? We’re swooning.
