We covered the afternoon tea scene in NYC and touched upon the basics in London; now it's time for afternoon tea in Hawai'i. Three tiers of savory finger sandwiches, warm scones with clotted cream, a finish of mini pastries, and pot of hot could you resist?

We have tea next to palm trees in sunlit rooms...and always with top notch service. Click on through the slideshow to see them all, or jump directly to one of the links below.
