Description

Claridge's has recently been named by Fodor's Travel as the best Afternoon Tea in the world. It's no wonder when you consider the iconic London hotel has been offering the tradition for the past 150 years. The newest incarnation has been designed by Henrietta Lovell, known as the Tea-Lady, and founder of the acclaimed Rare Tea Company, which is dedicated to sourcing and supplying the best tea in the world. Rare Tea Company tea leaves are grown on small, independent farms as far as China's Fujian mountains, to the slopes of Malawi's Mount Thyolo. Lovell's tea can now be found in the cups of Hollywood's elite, and on the tables of most of the finest restaurant and tearooms in the world.

Seated in your own private suite, your carefully selected teas will be accompanied by Claridge's classic combination of finger sandwiches, scones, tea cakes and pastries, all served on the hotel's bespoke fine china. Each member of your party will also be offered a glass of Champagne. This will be an Afternoon Tea experience unlike any you've had before as Tea Lady Henrietta Lovell guides you through it, instructing you on the making and tasting of the perfect cup of tea. She can explain each tea you enjoy from harvest to cu, with tales of the remote mountain tea gardens she visits to source the exquisite leaves.
