Tea, Crumpets and Flowers at Aura

Normally May flowers don’t show up until after the April showers but spring blossoms are turning up a little early with the arrival of the Boston Flower & Garden Show. The five-day-long floral extravaganza descends upon the Seaport World Trade Center from Wednesday, March 16th through Sunday, March 20th. Gardeners, having gleaned all manner of planting tips and design ideas for their own plots, can mull over and map out their plans while they enjoy afternoon tea at Aura. Chef Rachel Klein has designed a special menu of pastries, tea sandwiches and snacks which will only be available during the show. Tea is available from 3:00-5:00pm and costs $29 per person (or $39 per person for high tea, which includes a glass of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries). Neither price includes tax or gratuity. Make reservations by calling 617.385.4300 and order tickets for the Flower & Garden Show ($20 each) through the event website.
