Afternoon Tea with a Purpose

The Peninsula Beverly Hills knows how to make their classic Afternoon Tea extra special

Sip tea and munch on scones for this special Afternoon Tea at The Peninsula Beverly Hills.

Ladies love lunching and little girls love their tea parties, so The Peninsula Beverly Hills thought to take this classic tradition and give it more meaning, if only for a limited time. 

Currently, The Peninsula Beverly Hills is inviting guests to experience the art of gracious living with the Mikimoto Afternoon Tea, a special version of the hotel’s traditional Afternoon Tea service, which will benefit women and children affected by domestic violence.

The Mikimoto Tea service results from the hotel’s partnership with Mikimoto, the renowned creator of high-end pearl jewelry. The Mikimoto Tea menu is only available through the month of August, and proceeds will benefit A Window Between Worlds, the nonprofit organization dedicated to using art to help end domestic violence.

A time-honored Beverly Hills tradition, Afternoon Tea at The Peninsula Beverly Hills remains a must-try for guests staying at the hotel and those visiting the city.

The special menu includes a selection of savory sandwiches and pastries served on hand-painted china, an array of more than 30 loose-leaf teas, a miniature caviar cake, a glass of Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Rosé, and a signature Peninsula Page Cap Cake.

The Mikimoto Tea also includes a Japanese cookie and an invitation to visit the Mikimoto boutique in Beverly Hills, where guests will receive a copy of the Mikimoto book.

The special tea service is priced at $67 per person and is offered in addition to the hotel’s regular Afternoon Tea menu.
