Did someone say Afternoon tea week

Afternoon Tea Week has begun and I thought I would share a fun yet oh so sophisticated afternoon tea in London, 'Childhood Memories' at the Corinthia Hotel London. Childhood memories is the brain child of Sarah Barber the new Head Pastry Chef. 
The new menu will transport you back to your childhood with flavours of jaffa cake, bubblegum and snickers, providing a real taste of nostalgia. Not only are the flavours rich and pretty spot on to the real thing but the platter you are given is a thing of beauty being bold and bright.

The afternoon tea is served in the Lobby Lounge in The Corinthia and it's a stunning location and the china you are served with was designed specifically for The Corinthia, it's beautiful, elegant yet features a modern twist - I really wanted to buy it! 
So what do you actually get at this afternoon tea, let me enlighten you.

You can start with a glass of bubbles, Laurent-Perrier Brut darling. Then you get to choose a tea, if you know me then I am a fruity tea kinda girl so I went for the Pomegranate Oolong which was a lovely relaxing tea with a rich marriage of flavour. 

After drinks are sorted you are brought some finger sandwiches featuring some of the classics you would expect at afternoon tea, each on a different type of artisan bread:     

Loch Var Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese and Chive            
Coronation Chicken                   
Egg Mayonnaise and Watercress Cheese and Piccalilli               
Roast Beef and Creamed Horseradish                          
Severn and Wye Smoked Trout and Cucumber

All I can say is that my plate was empty!  

Next a tower of treats arrived with some picture perfect scones featuring at the top of the tower, of the plain and raisin variety. The fancies on offer are: 

Jaffa Cake
Bubblegum Macaroon
Crunchy Toffee Cream 
Rose Choquette
Strawberries and Cream

Childhood Memories Afternoon Tea is served in The Lobby Lounge until 31st August and is priced from £50 so get booking quick!
