Cherry Blossom Tea, 1-4 Daily at the Willard Hotel


Recommended Posts

As it does every year during the National Cherry Blossom Festival, the Willard Intercontinental Hotel is holding its "Cherry Blossom Tea:" afternoon tea with a cherry-themed menu. Tea is $39 per person ($49 with champagne), and is served daily from 1-4. This year's menu can be found here. Call (202) 637-7350 for reservations.

The Washington Toho Koto Society provides the background music every day during tea service. The Koto Society is a local group of traditional Japanese zither players; click here for an example of koto music. I've been a member of the Society since I returned from Japan, and will personally be playing at the Willard on March 27, April 10, April 17, and April 24.

Afternoon tea is one of my favorite events -- the atmosphere is very peaceful and calm. If you're looking to celebrate spring, either because of the blossoms or just because the weather's been so beautiful, consider checking out afternoon tea at the Willard (especially on Tuesdays!).
