Discover the Most Beautiful Afternoon Tea in Saint Petersburg

St. Petersburg, Russia

In The Tea Lounge at Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg, our guests can meet with their friends in the English manner. Every day from 3:30 to 6:30 pm, we provide a elegant tea ceremony.  As tradition demands, we offer our guests tea with or without milk, and it is also possible to order coffee. Holding an exquisite china cup in your hand you can have sophisticated conversation or share personal feelings. To this day, afternoon tea remains a beautiful excuse for English ladies to meet with their lady friends.

The tea ceremony at Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg starts with the glass of Louis Roederer Brut Premier champagne that sets the festive mood even when the skies above the glass roof of The Tea Lounge are grey. Inspired by Russian tradition, the tea is accompanied by the blinis with red caviar. Dozens of miniature savoury and sweet pastry bites created by the team of Pastry Chef Nicolas Lambert especially for afternoon tea are served on a tiered tray. You will be tempted to reach for the tiny treats — vegetarian, meat and fish sandwiches, two types of cheesecake, chocolate cake, tartlets, signature medovik cake — with your hands even though the social grace dictates that they should be taken with fancy serving tongs. Nevertheless, we suggest that you, while seated at the marble table of the historical mansion, let yourself enjoy the rules of this intricate social game.

The price of the afternoon tea is RUB 2900; a glass of champagne and a hot drink are included.
