Day 8 (September 7, Saturday) of my eventful week stay at the Bay Area. ･:*:･°✿ฺ ஐ~ Dave and I went to The Palace Hotel San Francisco and had a Signature Tea at a stunningly beautiful dining area called The Garden Court to celebrating my birthday week.~ஐ✿°･:*:･ I love tea and the act of indulging in the formal ritual of afternoon tea, and I have been wanting to come to the Palace Hotel with Dave for my birthday. The Garden Court is located where the carriage entrance to the hotel used to be and offers magnificent turn-of-the-century grandeur and elegance. Imagine a large room with a magnificent glass atrium, glass chandeliers and just when we thought the atomosphere couldn’t get any better, a lady began playing classical songs on the harp, she even played my favorite classical song "Clair De Lune" by Debussy —very heavenly!. All of the Palace Hotel tea service options include the same food and a choice of tea, Dave and I got the one that includes champagne for a bit extra. We get to choose one tea from a selection of teas blended by Ronnefeldt. The selection included black, green, and white teas, as well as herbal and fruit infusions. The list included several decaffeinated choices. I had the Palace Blend (fruity black house blend) and very happy with it. We really enjoyed our afternoon tea at The Garden Court and spent close to 2 hours leisurely having tea here. The tea and food were both delicious and of good quality as would be expected for such a top notch hotel. All the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly, and the service was great. I spent about half my time staring and snapping pictures of the beautiful setting—I just love the architecture of The Garden Court so for me it was a special treat to be in this historical and beautiful place.
