Afternoon tea is one of my favourite things in life. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and savoury and the unlimited plates mean you don’t have to feel guilty about stuffing your face with finger food.
Therefore when I heard about the newest “Tiers of Joy” afternoon tea in London I thought it’d be rude not to find out a little more.
The whole shibang involves a lot of cake (natch) and the name alone suggests some pretty intense food. The best thing of all – the food for each course is served with matching Taittinger champagnes.
When it comes to the food you’ve got the usual sandwiches, such as: egg and cress, beef and horseradish and these come out with a glass of Taittinger’s original Brut Reserve (or a cup of Earl Grey).
Then it’s onto the scones and finally a delicate selection of sweets including lighter than air raspberry macaroons which will literally leave you crying with joy.
The whole thing is available at The Royal Park Hotel and costs £40.
