Traditional and reinvented afternoon teas, served with 5 star panache.
The brand-new Queen of Hearts Afternoon Tea features beautifully designed pastries and scrumptious savoury treats inspired by the foul-tempered monarch from the beloved children’s classic Alice in Wonderland.
Some of the sweet temptations down the rabbit hole include Off With Their Heads - a delicious banana moelleux with a raspberry crémeux dress; No White Roses - an indulgent Victorian red velvet cupcake topped with the iconic ‘half painted’ roses and a delicious chocolate ganache; Running Late - a strawberry pocket watch macaron, intrinsically decorated with milk chocolate piping; Checkmate – a redcurrant and chocolate Battenberg cake in the style of a classic checker board; Tea Party at 6 – a dark chocolate hat, fitting for a mad-hatters tea party and Royal Flush - a mouth-watering orange semolina cake, adorned with fresh strawberries and blackberries in a chess-like formation.
The equally impressive tea sandwiches replicate the Queen’s soldiers and playing cards and include On Duty - Coronation chicken on carrot bread; Pick a Card - smoked salmon with horseradish crème fraîche on rye bread; Double Time - egg mayonnaise classic and In Line - cucumber and soft cheese on beetroot bread.
The scrumptious savory treats and scones are beautifully presented on fine china plates with Sir John Tenniel’s original book illustrations from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s collection, while the sweet treats preside over a glass checkerboard. The all-important Queen of Hearts playing card can be spotted on each table, alongside a bespoke hand-made top hat centrepiece.
Vegetarian and vegan versions of the tea are also available upon request 48 hours in advance.
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 creamed cheese, kachumbar pinwheel in beetroot bread and savoury Eastern dishes such as crispy chicken tikka spring rolls.
Follow with the traditional Indian dessert Gulab Jamun; beautiful deep fried & sugar poached milk dumplings and a selection of delicious cakes, scones and pastries, including chocolate Rasmalai cups and Gulabi scones with kismis and almonds, served with mango compote and cinnamon clotted cream.
Wash it down with a selection of eastern and western teas and coffees and a simply divine shot of salty caramel lassi with a chikki toffee crunch.
The table decor - with pale green floral tablecloths and gold embellished crockery - further complements the masterful fusion of old traditions and bold, innovative designs, inspired by India's fashion today.
