Teddy Bear Tea at the Ritz Carlton

Comments Off on Teddy Bear Tea at the Ritz Carlton

So, what is Teddy Bear tea you might be wondering? It has become an annual holiday tradition in San Francisco, where families are invited to gather for Teddy Bear Tea in the winter wonderland of The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom. While children enjoy a special tea experience of hot chocolate, scones, teddy bear sweet treats, and assorted sandwiches, they are entertained and engaged with a lively holiday show performed by an animated elf and holiday characters featuring sing-a-longs, skits and storytelling. And, as you enter the ballroom, Christmas Trees line the edges as well as holiday decorations and a massive sized teddy bar that greets you as you get off the elevator.

It’s a fun event, especially with kids in tow, for it really is a beautiful experience for kids to experience. It is lively and animated and an opportunity for kids to engage with other kids, all in a festival holiday atmosphere.

As for the menu? For kids, they have egg and English cucumber sandwiches and a grape and berry fruit cup as well as cookies, brownies, cannoli and berry cheesecake. The adults menu is a bit more decadent. Their savory menu included a Classic Egg Salad sandwich with avocado aioli and fried shallots on wheat bread, Lemon Cucumber with roasted pepper feta, kalamata olives and mint, a French Onion tart with creme fraiche, thyme and aged parmesan, smoked salmon mousse with wild Alaska Salmon Roe, cornichons and dill on rye bread and Tuscan Prosciutto with goat cheese, lamp chopper and winter spiced apple butter on brioche bread. Yum, right?

For sweets, they had cinnamon scones with lemon curd and Devonshire cream, Red Velvet Tea Cake with a cream cheese frosting (one of my favorites), Chocolate Caramel Tart, French Macaron and a Raspberry Bear Claw. It was all so divine. Additionally, they offer gluten free and vegan options as well.
