LAS VEGAS (March 8, 2019) – Specialty teas, champagne and caviar come together to create an upscale mid-day delight with the all-new Afternoon Tea at ARIA Resort & Casino’s Lobby Bar. A modern take on a timeless European tradition, Afternoon Tea is an elegant social ritual of sophisticated sips and light bites available noon- 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

Curated by ARIA Director of Beverage Daniel Molitor and award-winning tea importer Art of Tea, the experience delivers an eclectic selection of luxury tea options including the Sakura, a white tea blend with soft, sweet and floral notes; Immortal Nectar, a rare, premium and cave-aged Pu-erh black tea with a light sherry bouquet and a smooth, earthy flavor; and Eisai’s Choice Sencha, a prized green tea with a grassy flavor and vibrant hue, assembled to bring forth clarity and focus with every sip. Each serving of tea is presented in a delicate floral teapot and accompanied by traditional accoutrements of fresh lemon, cream and organic honey.

For a perfect pairing, guests are presented a wide selection of delectable miniature pastries, such as bite-size Hazelnut Financiers and Brittany Shortbread, and savory sandwiches, like the Smoked Salmon, topped with herb goat cheese and trout roe served on a soft shortbread; or Jamón Ibérico, with crispy brioche and frisée.

The luxurious options:

  • Afternoon Tea - Guests receive choice of tea, plus a selection of four savory accompaniments and four mini-desserts; priced at $45 per person.
  • The Royal Tea Tree – The ultimate indulgence, guests receive the Afternoon Tea experience plus one ounce of Osetra Caviar atop savory canapés – served upon a tableside multi-level sterling silver tree display – and a glass of Schramsberg, Blanc de Blancs, Brut; priced at $140 per person.
