No words at all! Okay, maybe one: perfection! It seems so simple but those little unique touches – starting with strawberries and cream, proper lemon curd and Karl the tea sommelier (I can't get over this!) – add to the appeal of Afternoon Tea at The Lanesborough. What's the point of...

I opted for the champagne Afternoon Tea which consisted of the chicest finger sandwiches known to Milla: smoked salmon, chicken and fois gras (evil but oh so delicious), an array of anti-bikini desserts, a pot of tea (sencha, of course) and a glass of Laurent Perrier Brut. I actually...

The tartlettes were tiny, but tasty according to my fellow Afternoon Tea-ers. In conclusion, Le Bristol is a fine place for Afternoon Tea. The service was top of the scale, particularly the hostess who was very friendly, polite and I know, there was something personable about her that I...

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...

Milla in Shropshire? I think not. The last time I was at the Shangri-La was back in October and I thought the décor was nice but they have pulled out all the stops for Christmas. 153 photographs in one afternoon – I'll add some additional images to my Facebook page at some point. I feel...

If I had to describe this afternoon tea experience in one word, 'refinement' would spring to mind. From the pianist playing beautifully in the background to the hand painted china my tea was served in, everything was so refined. To me this is what afternoon tea is about: beautiful food,...

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 day ended on a perfect note: a decadent champagne Afternoon Tea in The Foyer all to live music but that's a different blog post for a different day. Whilst the Afternoon Tea Master Classes aren't available year-round, Afternoon Tea is. I had such a memorable time and highly recommend it...

This was my third experience having afternoon tea at the Shangri-La and so, after having my proverbial socks blown off in Paris and Tokyo (to be blogged at some point...), I was expecting greatness. Fortunately, the only disappointing thing was that we had to leave at some point. It has been...

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...
