Chinese New Year Afternoon Tea

Hot Tea for the Cold New Year

All of us are looking for a little good luck and sweetness in this new year—which happens to be the year of the boar in the Chinese zodiac. Maybe we’ll find some at the Chinese New Year afternoon tea service at Fragrant Leaf this Sunday. On Jan. 20, take a seat at the little Nob Hill tea shop at either their 1 or 3:30pm seating for a catered three-course tea from Chez Axel Restaurant. The menu includes sweet and spicy Korean meatballs, ginger scones with five-spice whipped cream, orange blossom panna cotta with orange sauce and, of course, plenty of (green and oolong) tea. A vegetarian option is available—just ask for it when you make your reservation. Space is limited, and reservations cut off on Jan. 18. Tickets are $35 per person. Call 505-255-0522 or visit to reserve your seats. (Robin Babb)
