London is all about luxury experiences, but the most English luxurious experience of all, is the Traditional Afternoon Tea.
When a friend from my old University came to London for work, she asked me if I wanted to join her to a traditional Afternoon Tea. Of course, this was an offer that I couldn’t say no to. I love Afternoon Teas and besides this is what London is all about. One must indulge yourself to an Afternoon Tea when visiting England and I was happy to join her on her experience.
We spent some time researching where we wanted to go. The Ritz was the first thing that popped into my mind, however it was all booked for that busy pre-Christmas weekend. Finally, we decided to try out the Afternoon Tea at Fortum & Mason since I heard it has good reviews.
The Afternoon Tea at Fortum & Mason turned out to be the perfect choice for a traditional English Tea. It was held at the Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon, at the top floor of the department store. We were offered a wide selection of their iconic English and Rare Teas, along with finger sandwiches, scones, and cakes.
I’m a huge scone lover, plain or fruity, therefore, that was my favorite pastry. I also especially loved my Jasmine tea and the traditional English Battenberg cake.
Afternoon Tea is a luxury experience and a must-do when visiting England. (See also: 10 Luxury Places to Visit in London). Our experience at Fortum & Mason was excellent; Exactly what you would expect from a luxury Afternoon Tea. The atmosphere was relaxed and the presentation was elegant and refined. Me and my friend also enjoyed the friendly service from the staff. I would definitely love to come back to Fortum & Mason Tea Room.
For our Afternoon Tea date, I wore geometric shirt from Zara that I haven’t worn in a while. So I decided this is the perfect opportunity to finally wear it again.
For reservations, rates and menus go to Fortum & Mason.
