Tea Around Town – The Sweetest NYC Tour

Whether you’re a long-time resident of The Big Apple, or you’re simply in town for a few days, there’s no better way to see the downtown area than on a giant, pink, double decker bus while sipping tea and snacking on scones. That’s just what you get with Tea Around Town. I’ve lived in NYC all my life, and I can guarantee you there’s nothing like this in the city! It’s certainly the first time I ever experienced anything like it. A wide field of view of the city with exquisite teas and finger sandwiches is something we are raving about! Go on your own mobile tea room with friends this year- NYC style!

About the Bus

Tea Around Town is one of the best ways to enjoy downtown New York City. The experience combines afternoon tea with a double decker bus tour of downtown New York City. It’s a unique experience that’s like nothing you’ve ever done before. I recently enjoyed my own experience with Tea Around Town, and it’s my new favorite way to enjoy the city! Sweet treats and bottomless tea options within the city hustle is something we’ve never experienced before. This double-decker bus has everything you can imagine for a unique afternoon tea experience. It’s the perfect place for a small birthday celebration, in our opinion! View iconic NYC landmarks all while having an amazing overall experience with warm tea.

This bus tour takes place on a double decker bus that’s as pink on the inside as it is on the outside. The seats are a lovely pink and cream color, and they even have floral centerpieces. While you sit and enjoy the views out of the large windows and the glass roof, you’ll enjoy three tiers of scones along with other savory and sweet items like appetizer crackers, and baked goods. And of course, it’s all served with complimentary tea service. You’ll be able to enjoy a wide variety of teas from Earl Grey with Lavender to decaf tea, coffee, and even three different kinds of champagne. The unique 90-minute experience has a standard afternoon tea menu with items like sweet pastries, classic cucumber sandwiches and the best cup of tea around.

I took the tour with my  friend, but this is also perfect for families with children. While enjoying scones, sandwiches, cookies, teas, and champagne, I and the other passengers were treated to all the major NYC sites. If you take this tour, you’ll see the New York Public Library, Grand Central Terminal, Columbus Circle, Radio City Music Hall, and more. I’ve always loved roaming around town, but it all seemed so much different sitting in a pink double decker bus while sipping champagne and enjoying finger foods.

If you’re planning a visit to NYC or even if you’re a resident, you have to see the city from the top of a double decker bus while you enjoy high tea! I’m a life-long New Yorker, and it was a totally new experience for me. It’s one of the best ways to experience the city!

  1. Is this delightful bus available in December? What is the price? How far in advance do reservations need to be made?
