catch of the day fish (2)There are few things more relaxing or luxurious than settling down for an unhurried cup of tea. Here in the US, we tend to be more of a coffee-oriented culture, and that’s fine, of course. But tea comes with so much more ceremony. The little pots, the saucers, the pastries that are so tea party-specific. It’s a whole thing. That’s why children pretend to have tea parties, not coffee dates. Because it’s the entire ritual of sitting down for tea with someone that makes an afternoon– not just the beverage itself. And just where should one go in Baltimore for the finest in tea time? Well, April 2-4, you can head to Gertrude’s at the BMA for a semi-traditional afternoon tea (or, of course, coffee if you prefer). Gertrude’s Afternoon Tea offers a selection of fine teas (loose and bagged, hot and iced) as well as coffee or juice if you prefer. You also get savory tea-time bites like smoked salmon with gruyere, asparagus and sage cakes, and crab beignets. For the sweet tooth, they’ll have apricot scones, coconut macaroons, almond cakes, and more. And don’t get us started on dessert– Gertrude’s Candy Bar, which is a decadent combination of chocolate mousse, salty caramel, and hazelnut crunch. Essentially, this menu is a work of art. Stroll the museum either before or after, and take in some others while you’re at it.

Gertrude’s Afternoon Tea is offered the first weekend of each month. In April, Afternoon Tea will be offered April 2-4. Reservations are required. For more information, visit www.gertrudesbaltimore.com.
