Tiered towers filled with bite size delights, sumptuous scones and steaming pots of your favourite infusions…what’s not to love about afternoon tea? Well this spring, two of our favourite hotels are taking tea-time to a whole new level of divine decadence.
Tea for Choo!
From now through 5 May, MO Bar will play host to an exclusive Jimmy Choo Afternoon Tea experience. Taking inspiration from Jimmy Choo’s Spring/Summer 2013 collections, the tea’s signature cakes, cookies, pastries and sandwiches will highlight the haute gypsy glamour of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s including rich, vibrant colors and embossed leather, fringes and tassels. Highlights include smoked salmon cucumber CAYLA clutch sandwiches, decorated with brightly coloured cream cheese pyramid studs and a small but perfectly formed white chocolate bag in one of Jimmy Choo’s iconic leopard prints.
From 6 May to 30 June, Café Gray Deluxe will collaborate with diptyque to launch an aromatic Moheli Afternoon Tea, inspired by Eau Moheli, the brand’s signature floral fragrance collection launching internationally this spring. This sumptuous spread will play on the notes of ginger, pepperwood, pink peppercorn and Ylang-Ylang Moheli in the fragrance with bakery and pastry specialties including Curry Poached Chicken Salad Tartlet with Ginger Peach Chutney, Mini Cinnamon Roll with Golden Raisin, Salted Caramel and Pink Pepper Flakes, served with homemade preserves and honey.
Book now as these haute teas are sure to sell out almost as quickly as their fashion counterparts!
