hey all!

this is a little late, these were taken end of November, but I figured I'd share! (excuse the phone pics)

We went to two different afternoon teas on our little trip - one at Fortnum & Mason, and one at The Langham.

Fortnum & Mason was pretty good.

Image

a little simple. but i'm not complaining - it's nice to find anything! the sandwiches were roasted pepper, artichoke, and cucumber, all separate. the sweets were little fruitcake loaf and some citrusy shortbread. scones were great!

roses on the table were pretty:

but The Langham was grrreat! I took more pictures there...

Image

sandwiches were very nice - hummus with roasted veg, eggplant spread, avocado, and cucumber.

roses were on the table here, too:
Image

the sweets were more creative! here's the whole set up..

and a close up:
Image

a little pot of vanilla rice pudding (so good), mini vanilla pear pie, a little chocolate cake, and an apricot jelly.

lone scone:
Image

all in all, it was a very pleasant experience. so Londoners, there is good vegan afternoon tea to be found when you want to treat yourself.

Wow ! So beautiful ! I want to sit down for English tea right now.

Love how so much care is put into setting the stage for the tea and goodies.

I have a grouping of antique plates with flowers on them that I'd like to have made into the 3 tier serving sets for tea. Will need to do some research.

The Langham one does look interesting! Are these offered on the menu or are they special request?

It was all special request - I asked when booking, and they were super nice about it, and very accommodating.

Awesome, looks like fun. My flat is actually less than 10mins walk from the Langham hotel so it looks like afternoon tea there is on the cards! Thanks for sharing.
