Corinthia Hotel Afternoon Tea Review: Last weekend I was invited to the Corinthia Hotel for an afternoon tea with some bloggers. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know I’m a complete sucker for afternoon teas, cafes and cakes. Corinthia Hotel Afternoon Tea Review
I love the sophistication afternoon teas bring with them and the portions that look so little can fill you up for an entire day.
I wore a nice long wrap dress by Holly & Joey from TKMaxx.
Where is the Corinthia Hotel?
Corinthia Hotel is one of the hotels in Westminster. Its just a few minutes walk from Embankment Station which is quite well connected with different underground lines. Corinthia Hotel Afternoon Tea Review
Corinthia Hotel Address: Whitehall Place, Westminster, London SW1A 2BD
The weather was cold and was totally perfect for an afternoon spent sipping on tea, munching on finger sandwiches/desserts and chatting with some lovely like-minded people.
On entering the Corinthia Hotel you will feel it’s amazing and grand ambience.
Crystal Moon Hall is right at the entrance so you wouldn’t miss the afternoon tea area.
What’s in the Afternoon Tea?
We were offered the Classic Afternoon Tea. There was a vast menu of teas and I chose to have Darjeeling Goom Tea. Corinthia Hotel Afternoon Tea Review
The gentleman serving us made sure we all had food according to our respective dietary needs.
He made sure the meat I had was all halal. I was really happy that they served halal sandwiches and ooh they were yummy!
The finger sandwiches included:
- Cucumber Radish and Cream Cheese on White Bread.
- Egg Mayo Truffle & Watercress on Spinach Bread
- Creme Fraiche & Spring Onion on Brown Bread
- Tandoori Chicken, Green Apple and Raisin on White Bread
- Roast Beef, Caramelized Onion and Wholegrain Mustard with Rocket Salad on Granary Bread
Then came the Plain and Sultana Scones served with Rhubarb & Tonka Bean Jam and Cornish Clotted Cream. The scones were warm, soft and very very fresh. They were delicious.
Next, the dessert trolley looked indulgent and divine. The lady serving us gave a nice briefing and made sure we all knew what we could or couldn’t have. There was one item that had alcohol in it. There were also marshmallows that had fish gelatin in it. I was so impressed that she even gave me that detail which was important for me.
Wow! The staff really knew their stuff.
The dessert trolley included:
- Yoghurt & Blueberry Sphere
- Raspberry & Elderflower Tartlet
- Araguiani Chocolate Cassis & Figs
- Lemon Yuzu & Coconut Eclair
- Lemon Drizzle Cake
By this time I was so full but I had to try each one of those sweet delicacies.
The tea set, plates etc are specially commissioned, hand-painted bone china by Richard Brendon and his collection can be found right HERE.
In the end, we were given a tour of the hotel. We visited a penthouse that was beautiful and timeless.
I really didn’t want to come out of this place.
