At five in the afternoon, as mandated by English tradition, it is the ideal time to meet friends to taste the afternoon tea from the Mandarín Oriental hotel. This hotel located on the prestigious Paseo de Gracia in Barcelona is the luxury of luxury in the city. Upon entering the hotel, we find the headquarters of the famous jewelry store Tifanny & Co. that gives its name to afternoon tea and, a few meters later, the exclusive Manolo Blanik.
Every day from five to seven in the afternoon at the hotel Blanc restaurant you can enjoy the Tifanny & Co. afternoon tea. As the name of the restaurant indicates, everything is decorated in white tones, including the grand piano in the lounge and whose melody plays throughout the afternoon.
Shortly after sitting at the table, they brought us the letter of teas. It is a box with nine bottles with all the teas available so we could decide what to drink smelling the aroma of each one. Finally, and perhaps influenced by the white of the room, I opted for the white peony and they served it to me in a teapot of traditional Chinese style. If you are not fans of tea, do not worry because they also serve coffees and other types of drinks.
