ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Does the final season of “Downton Abbey” find you longing for afternoon tea? Or maybe cold, dark afternoons just call from something warm and comforting.
Like-minded individuals may be headed for savories and sweets and a variety of teas at St. James Tearoom on Osuna NE or other tea shops, like Figment Tea on Montgomery NE, but you can always pull out your teapot and warm your oven with homemade treats to satisfy your craving.
Laura Bartolucci, St. James Tearoom special events planner, says taking a cue from the long-running PBS series and offering your guests tea is a fun and elegant way to make them feel welcome. Farewell tribute teas to “Downton Abbey’s” final season tonight and Tuesday at the tearoom are sold out, she says, but a full English tea in the same style is always available with reservations.
