A few weeks back myself and a couple of friends decided to treat ourselves, for our respective birthdays, to Tea Time at the Ritz and what an afternoon it was.
From the second we walked in, I knew we were going to be in for quite an opulent experience.
We were immediately brought to our table while we waited for the rest of our party to show up.
You can either order a la carte or order the Afternoon tea which consists of the following:
Cucumber and cream cheese on white bread
Smoked salmon and cream cheese on brown bread
Chicken breast, truffle mayonnaise on white bread
Tomatoes and watercress on brown bread
Cranberry and plain scones, Devonshire style cream, rose jam and orange marmalade
Pastry Chef’s creations
We went the Afternoon Tea and were not disappointed.
We were advised to eat the sandwiches first as the bread contains no artificial products.
Scones: these had to be the best scones that I have ever had. The jams and devonshire cream were just the touch to go along with them.
I would be remiss if I did not mention our waiter: Thomas. He just made our whole experience that much better.
We really enjoyed our Afternoon Tea and we would do it again. It’s a little pricey, but every now and again a woman deserves a princess afternoon.
