Traditional and reinvented afternoon teas, served with 5 star panache.
Take a journey through Queen Elizabeth's sensational reign this Jubilee year with the new The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Afternoon Tea.
This Afternoon Tea features intrinsically designed pastries and scrumptious savoury treats, all inspired by 70 years of service. From miniature royal carriages encasing delicate pastries, to beautiful handmade table dressings in the rich royal colour of purple laying down the carpet for this tea, this beautiful and delicious afternoon tea is fit for royalty.
Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites & Residences has played host to the Queen, other members of the royal family, and numerous dignitaries over the years, making Kona the perfect place to celebrate this royal occasion and indulge in the quintessentially British tradition of afternoon tea.
Residing in the heart of the royal quarter, it is also not only a stone’s throw from the royal residence of Buckingham Palace, but also just a short walk to St James’ Palace where Princess Elizabeth was formally proclaimed Queen in February 1952.
The tea will be available to book from 8th February, celebrating 70 years to the day that Princess Elizabeth became Queen.
The Jasmine Indian Afternoon Tea evokes the rich traditions of the Indian dining culture with a bold and innovative twist on the traditional afternoon tea.
Enjoy a variety of sandwiches such as spiced cream cheese, kachumber pinwheel in beetroot bread and savoury Eastern dishes such as crispy chicken tikka spring rolls.
Follow with the traditional Indian dessert Gulab Jamun and a selection of delicious cakes, scones and pastries, including chocolate Rasmalai cups and Gulabi scones.
Wash it down with a selection of eastern and western teas and coffees and a shot of salty caramel lassi with a chikki toffee crunch.
