From London and New York City to Seattle and Vancouver, afternoon tea is becoming the hottest way to refuel.

First devised in the mid-1800s, “taking tea” began when the Duchess of Bedford invited friends to join her for an afternoon meal at Woburn Abbey in the English countryside. Featuring small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches and assorted sweets, the event was so popular the Duchess continued it when she returned to London. Other social hostesses soon adopted the practice, with afternoon tea ultimately spreading throughout the various colonies of the British Empire.

Today, ADONIA continues the tea-taking tradition, creating a relaxing, refined — and authentic — experience that’s social, serene and casually elegant.

Enjoy a complete selection of dainty finger sandwiches, fresh baked pastries and mouthwatering scones, along with a steaming (and frequently replenished) pot of your favourite tea.

We serve and sell only the finest loose leaf teas available and, with more than 50 varieties to choose from, are pleased to help you select the tea that best suits your frame of mind.
