Have you been to tea at the St. Julien on Walnut Street? As one of Boulder’s swankiest mainstays, you’ve probably been to Jill’s for breakfast. You’ve grabbed a post-work cocktail at their bar for happy hour with your bestest of best work buddies. Maybe you stuck around long enough to hear some jazz in the lobby or mingle outdoors in the courtyard in summertime.
But why not step inside for a cuppa Boulder-style holiday hot this winter and book a tea (not tee) time at the St. Julien Hotel?
For the holiday season, they’re offering their signature Gingerbread Teas featuring teas by Tea Forté. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit Boulder-based There With Care, a nonprofit dedicated to assisting families and children facing critical illnesses. You can ease into a comfy chair and listen to the twinkling ivories of Grammy-winning pianist Ralph Sharon and his accompanying trio, accompanied by your own aromatic and warm cup of tea.
The tea spread includes scones, petit fours, and tea sandwiches to tide your tummy over until your weekend holiday meal. You can view the entire tea menu here.
And it’s not just for the grown-ups. Bring the kids and let them try their hand at decorating gingerbread cookies — definitely fun and always a non-denominational type of tasty.
