Tea at the Moana

Yesterday I wrote about Ti, so it is fitting that today's topic would be Tea.  Particularly since I spent yesterday afternoon at the Westin Moana Surfrider Hotel on Waikiki Beach, having afternoon tea with a good friend. The Moana is my favorite place in Hawaii for afternoon tea.  It is impossible to find a nicer setting. The Moana is the oldest hotel on Waikiki Beach, a stunning white structure on Kalakaua Avenue.

Afternoon tea is served at the Beachhouse Restaurant on the back veranda.  The tables overlook Waikiki beach.  Sitting there always makes me feel I have gone back in time.

Having tea at the Moana is always a treat.  What is your favorite place for afternoon tea?
