Tea Under the Tree

The days are getting shorter, the sun is setting earlier and soon the winter holidays will be here before we know it. Taking Afternoon Tea at this time of the year is a favourite event celebrated by all those that who know that a pot of tea, delicious warm scones and other teatime treats is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays with family and friends!

Our annual pop up “Tea Under the Tree” at the famed Sir Francis Drake Hotel in downtown San Francisco is a jolly fun way to kick off the holidays. We will be serving our quintessential, beloved Afternoon Tea experience every weekend from November 24th to December 30th. The week of December 17th we will be serving tea everyday. However we will be not be serving on December 24th or 25th, our Trolley Dolly’s need time with their families too!

To get absolutely every detail and the new, exciting thing is that you will be able to book online ! We are super excited to be back at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel, it is officially a San Francisco Holiday tradition! We will of course also be serving a special Holiday Tea at our Japantown location too.
