The Tea Party in Wonderland features an eclectic menu of cakes and pastries inspired by characters and quirks from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland like ‘Queen of Hearts’ Mango Tarts, ‘Drink Me’ strawberry potion, ‘Caterpillar’s Mushroom’ Raspberry Marshmallows, White Chocolate Mousse Teacups and Pocket Watch macaroons.

Commissioned as part of the 'English Classics, Reinvented' literary series, this collector’s edition was launched at the preview reception of the Hay Festival 2015 at Kona. The unique cover is East London based designer Ethan McClean’s psychedelic interpretation of Alice’s journey down the rabbit hole - an illustration capturing Alice's journey from our world into Wonderland, where she falls into the abstract, in an optical illusion which hypnotically pulls the reader into a strange new land.
ROYAL AFTERNOON TEA

Accompanied by Miniature Victoria Sponge Sandwiches, White Chocolate Crowns, Coronation Chicken with Golden Sultanas, Smoked Loch Fyne Salmon with Rocket, and lots more. Served at Taj 51 Buckingham Gate, a gemstone's throw from Buckingham Palace, the Royal Afternoon Tea is an exclusive invitation a truly regal afternoon.
The Jungle Book Afternoon Tea
Inspired by Mowgli’s adventures in Rudyard Kipling’s classic, The Jungle Book, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces has launched a new Jungle Book Afternoon Tea inviting guests to embark on a culinary journey with delicacies inspired by the setting at the heart of the story.
Reflecting the loveable bear’s fondness for honey, the Baloo’s Himalayan Honey Macaroons take guests far and beyond the realm of the Bare Necessities, whilst the Shere Khan’s Masala Chai Éclair is of course derived from the story’s infamous villain. The Bandar Log Spiced Banoffie with Saffron Cream takes its name from the Bandar Log monkey tribe, who tries to lure young Mowgli with the promise of the sweet life of swinging through the trees.
The spicy kick of chilli in Ikki’s Chilli Pineapple Cupcake reflects Ikki, the porcupine’s sharp spines, and the eclectic flavours of Mowgli’s Jungle Pink Guava & Sweet Basil Jelly are reminiscent of the man-cub’s unending sense of fun and adventure.
The savoury treats all boast an Indian twist inspired by Kipling’s love of the continent, from the Curry Egg Mayo in a Brioche Bun to the Sultana Coronation Chicken Wrap.
The latest initiative in Taj’s English Classics Reinvented campaign, the launch of The Jungle Book Afternoon tea follows the recent release of Taj’s bespoke limited edition of The Jungle Book.
