Tea at La Quinta

Hosted at John Gaw Meem's 1935 masterpiece, Afternoon Tea at La Quinta is an immersive cultural experience. Revel in the magnificence of Meem's architectural gem, La Quinta, alongside stunning work by artists from the WPA era. Enjoy a beautiful selection of teas from Taos' small-batch, handcrafted tea company, tea.o.graphy, and our culinary team's seasonally-driven take on a traditional afternoon tea menu, with a selection of sweet and savory bites. Following tea service, you'll be invited to join a short, 20-minute docent-led tour at either 3:15 PM or 4:45 PM, highlighting some of the remarkable features of the historic La Quinta building and the artists who contributed to it, and you will leave with a small gift from Los Poblanos.

Afternoon Tea guests have access to the La Quinta Gallery and the Library Bar following tea service. The Library Bar features a curated list of locally distilled spirits and favorites from around the world along with a seasonal cocktail menu. The Library Bar is open Sunday - Wednesday 5 - 10 PM exclusively to lodging guests and visitors with Afternoon Tea reservations.
