With the Royal Baby making the UK love everything British, the Kay family also did something very quintessentially British, with an alfresco Afternoon Tea in london at Mews of Mayfair. This alfresco dining area is hidden down the back street of Mayfair nestled between Elemis and Victoria Secret on New Bond Street and with the sun shining there was no reason not to sit outside especially with heaters and blankets and wanting to show off my new Shade Station Ray Bans – love them!
Although this afternoon tea is served in a very traditional format with the three tiered plates, it has a twist which I liked, you don’t just have the same three types of sandwiches but a salmon poppy-seed bagel, chicken ceaser wrap entwined with traditional sandwiches; scones with delicious homemade strawberry jam and clotted cream and some amazing cakes including green and pink macaroons and Battenberg.
All this talk is making me hungry but I cannot forget the tea, the tea brand is Rare Tea Co which cleanse the palette. We had Earl Grey and a herbal blend but if Tea is not to your fancy you can of course get a glass of Veuve Clicquot.
I am always on the hunt for the best afternoon tea in London and Mews Of Mayfair has definitely hit the spot.
Served between 2.30 - 5pm £32.50 with a glass of bubbles £4.5
