" I'm expecting the tea of my life" proclaimed my friend when we made the booking. We had very high hopes for our monthly Afternoon Tea at Paris' most renowned hotel – The Ritz. We had hoped to have tea in the garden but that wonderful rain, in July no less, dashed our hopes. It seems the...

Though I rather enjoy the Library Bar at The Lanesborough, one of London's 5-star hotels, this was my first experience at Apsleys, where one takes Afternoon Tea at the hotel. As it turns out, there were to be quite a few firsts that day. I'm all about the details so seeing a menu which...

Cyndi Lauper may have sung "Girls just want to have fun", but this girl just wants to have Afternoon Tea, and where better than at one of Paris' top hotels: Hôtel de Crillon . Look, if it's good enough for Carine Roitfeld, it's good enough for us girls. Place de la Concorde is one of...

Despite making a reservation for Afternoon tea, we were seated right next to the bar. With the unique glasses and various types of alcohol on display, it's really cool, but the wrong place for tea, plus it was cold since we were quite close to what I think is a terrace. I think they should...

my Mum now lives in, has to be the Art Deco features along the seafront, in particular the gorgeously restored, The Midland Hotel. A while back when visiting my Mum, and while the sun was shining, we decided to take a walk along the promenade, take some pictures and enjoy afternoon tea at...

The legendary Parisian hotel located just off Avenuedes Champs-Élyséestrès française twist on this British woman's favourite pastime: afternoon tea, but you'll just have to read my article in The Arbuturian for more delicious details... I don't miss life in France but I tell you, what...

The moment I confirm my next London trip, I will make a reservation for tea again. I think my mum would love it here. I really want to explore more of London because I feel I'm losing touch with my home and I want to experience Afternoon Tea all around town, but this is my new local. Other...
