Where to Take Tea
When afternoon arrives, Bermuda, like Britain, pauses for tea. Usually, tea is served between 3 and 5, but teatime can mean anything from an urn or thermos and cookies sitting on a sideboard to the more formal stiff-pinkie-presentation of brewed-to-order tea in a porcelain or silver teapot, served with cream and sugar on a tray, and accompanied by finger sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and jam.
Fairmont Hamilton Princess. Fairmont Hamilton Princess serves a posh afternoon tea in its Heritage Court, adjacent to the lobby and Japanese koi pond. Fine Eastern teas are brought to your Italian linen-covered table in shining silver teapots and poured into delicate Belgian china. The cost is $34 for tea, miniature sandwiches, and cakes. Served 2:30-5 daily. Reservations are required. 76 Pitts Bay Rd., Hamilton, HM08. 441/295-3000 or 800/441-1414.
Willowbank. The Willowbank tearoom features a slightly ersatz collection of Victorian memorabilia. High tea for two arrives on a triple-tiered china tray and costs $17; à la carte options are also available for $22.50. Served 12-2 and 4-4:30, Monday-Saturday. 126 Somerset Rd., Sandys Parish, MA06. 441/234-1616.
