City Editor Sara here. As a big fan of both books + tea, visiting the Courtyard Tea Room at the Boston Public Library has been on my to-do list for quite some time.
I finally crossed it off my Boston bucket list — here’s what to expect from the experience:
- A 90-minute seating with a prix fixe menu, presented to you inside of a book.
- Tea sandwiches (think: Maine lobster, English cucumber, and a smoked salmon option), a variety of sweets, and two types of scones.
- Your choice of tea — I recommend the matcha or Earl Grey.
- Views of the classic Italianite courtyard from the library’s McKim Building.
The afternoon tea service is set at $68 per person, and you can reserve your spot online.
