Afternoon TeaAfternoon tea with cute sandwiches, scones, and petit-fours (all gluten free, of course), is one of my favorite indulgences, so I’ve been totally thrilled to do afternoon tea already three times this year.

The Phoenician Resort is a Starwood Luxury Collection Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. During weekend afternoons, they serve afternoon tea in the lobby lounge, complete with live pianist, overlooking the stunning Phoenix desert.

Earlier this year a few friends and I went there to celebrate a birthday. Tea menuWe had a lovely table next to the window, but more importantly, they did everyone’s tea snacks GLUTEN FREE and one person’s GF and DAIRY FREE. How amazing! And it still tasted as good as the original.

Price per person is $40, plus tax and gratuity; there is also the option to upgrade to all you can drink champagne.

Here are a few pictures from that afternoon…
