Tea with Tiepolo, Cavalieri Hotel Rome

Tea with Tiepolo is a tradition at the Rome Cavalieri hotel. As the name implies, art is a big part of this hotel. Beyond the tea’s namesake artist, they have quite the lavish art collection–from 18th century tapestries to Louis XIV clocks.

Served  daily in grand style at the magnificent Tiepolo Lounge and Terrace, combining the charm of an English afternoon tea with the style and panache of Italian cuisine. The Hotels Chef will enthral you with a tempting selection of finger sandwiches, scones, selection of pastries and fruit sushi, all served on a vermeil tea set. The menu offers a selection of top grade teas including such exotic blends as Yin Zhen, a rare white tea from an island in Hunan province in China, and Budda Ama-Cha, an exotic green tea grown in the uplands near Kyoto in Japan. Tea is served beneath one of Rome Cavalieri's greatest art treasures - the magnificent Tiepolo triptych. Painted in 1725, it originally adorned the walls of Palazzo Sandi in Venice and features a series of mythological scenes. Afternoon tea is always a moment to pause and reflect, and these beautiful paintings help to create a contemplative atmosphere.

 Tea with Tiepolo is served daily from 4 pm to 6.30 pm.
