My Cup of Tea - Claridge's Regains London's Top Afternoon Tea Award 2011
Congratulations to Claridges in London who have been awarded London's Top Afternoon Tea Award 2011 by the Tea Guild of the UK Tea Council.
The family Tweed have certainly penciled in a visit to try out a full afternoon tea - the works. There are 30 tea blends to choose from, with finger sandwiches, pastries and scones with Devon clotted cream tea too. Textbook stuff. Right now they're offering the Great British Afternoon Tea, between the 18th of June and the 3rd of July. It's a traditional afternoon tea accompanied by a glass of rose champagne, strawberries and macaroons. Yum, yum.
Dress code: Elegant smart casual, meaning no shorts, vests, sportswear, flip flops, ripped jeans or baseball caps. I think they've filtered out the worst of the worst in city dressing there. Vests are underwear, flip flops are for the beach (if anywhere) and baseball caps are for nowhere. Here endeth the lesson.
