Where better in London to indulge in the great British tradition of afternoon tea than in Mayfair. There’s a chill in the air this month, so grab a friend (or two) and head to the Chesterfield for tea, sandwiches and cakes in delightful surroundings.
Tradition with a twist.
Afternoon tea at the Chesterfield pays homage to the traditional British ritual, with some exciting variations. You could even purchase afternoon tea as a gift experience for someone special. You can enjoy a selection of sandwiches, cupcakes, fruit cake. There are dainty pastries as well as freshly baked homemade scones and clotted cream. All served with a selection of teas, and at £34.50 per person you really can’t go wrong. You could even choose to indulge in a glass of champagne or brut if you’re feeling particularly naughty. It’s the perfect afternoon with the girls!
Tea for two.
With a tempting range of teas to choose from, select a traditional leaf tea or a refreshing green tea. Why not try something a little different, Willy Wonka Chocolate Tea is blended with cocoa nibs for a rich, chocolatey hit. For a refreshing scented tea, Jasmine Pearl tea is a light green tea with jasmine flowers which slowly unfurl in your cup – beautiful and delicious.
The only problem with afternoon tea in Mayfair is the inevitable addiction – you could find it becoming a weekly occurrence, and who are we to stop you.
