Happy National Tea Day! We’ve put together a list of our favourite places to celebrate our love of tea (and cake).
Celebrate National Tea Day with the London Tea Exchange at Spitalfields E1. Expect plenty of tea related activities including free tasting of familiar and exotic types of tea. There will also be tea-tasting masterclasses to teach you how to prepare a proper brew. Pick up some tea accessories too including teapots, storage tins and strainers.
Sketch offers tea and cake in a gorgeous plush pink dining room. They pay incredible attention to detail to ensure the food and crockery look perfect. Smoked salmon and cucumber are just a few of the sandwiches on offer, followed by dainty pastries and tangy citrus meringue.
The Langham has been serving afternoon tea for over 150 years and the Palm Court still offers a bespoke version of their afternoon tea tradition. You can choose from over 30 different blends of tea and accompany it with scrumptious scones and delicate finger sandwiches.
Celebrate National Tea Day at The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in the Sanderson Hotel. Discover menus hidden inside vintage books, teapots adorned with kings and queens, sandwich plates decorated with birdcages, carousels and ticking clocks upon which rest savoury, specialty sandwiches.
Fortum and Mason is a British icon when it comes to afternoon tea. Their Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly. You can truly relax and sample some of Fortnum’s famous tea blends.
Orange Pekoe pride themselves on providing a place for informal afternoon tea. They offer a homely experience where you can enjoy dainty finger sandwiches, fresh cakes and hot scones loaded with Cornish clotted-cream and homemade jam.
If you’re looking for something different, this afternoon tea experience is for you! Sip on your cuppa while soaking up British culture on a vintage red London bus. Ride by the famous sites including the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, and Nelson’s Column amongst many more.
