As most of you know I recently wrote about the 12 best places in London for afternoon tea. Well had the wonderful Tea, London & Sightseeing afternoon tea at the Swissôtel launched when I wrote that it would have definitely made my top 12.
I was invited to sample the fabulous TLSee afternoon tea that just launched this Friday and was not disappointed!
Under the guidance of Executive Chef Brian Spark, TLSee afternoon tea offers a bite-sized tour of the capital with each teatime treat exquisitely baked and designed to represent the vibrancy of the city. Traditional finger sandwiches and home-baked scones with clotted cream headline the afternoon tea menu before guests are treated to a selection of mouth watering macaroons, lemon drizzle cake and a scrumptious carrot cake to mention just a few. The highlight is the skillful presentation of the miniature London landmarks, my personal favourite was the replica 3D chocolate Big Ben filled with raspberry ganache and the Crown Jewels finished in gold leaf was also delicious, these are just two of the nine novel treats available. The other iconic patisseries include Tower Bridge, a London Cab, the London Eye, Temple Underground Sign, ER red post box, St Paul’s Cathedral and a London Routemaster.
TLSee is destined to be a stylish occasion! As guests take solace from the busy city for an afternoon of indulgence the only decision to make would be which tea to choose to accompany all the wonderful treats.
TLSee is priced at £28 per person and as a launch offer will include a glass of Alain Thienot Brut Champagne.
