AF­TER­NOON TEA

Business Traveller (India) - - FIND YOUR GREAT BRITAIN -

No rit­ual could be more quintessen­tially Bri­tish than the af­ter­noon tea. Tra­di­tion­ally, it is served with a whole bunch of frills in­clud­ing a tiered stand lay­ered with sweet and savoury good­ies. Don't for­get the scones, most of­ten ac­com­pa­nied by as­sorted jams and clot­ted cream. In ad­di­tion, there is a host of sand­wiches and pas­tries on of­fer. One of our favourites is the lav­ish spread at Fort­num & Ma­son, a leg­endary tea house es­tab­lished in 1707. Step into Fort­num’s on Pic­cadilly for a co­pi­ous af­ter­noon tea with ar­ti­sanal pas­tries and a top-notch tea se­lec­tion. Also visit The Dorch­ester on Park Lane for an af­ter­noon tea. At the tea sa­lon, The Prom­e­nade, you can even opt to wa­ter down your teatime snacks with a flute of Lau­rent-Per­rier cham­pagne. If you en­joy a good per­for­mance, the Sleep­ing Beauty Af­ter­noon Tea is where you can watch a live per­for­mance of the bal­let, by the English Na­tional Bal­let school, in the midst of the tea­room.
