A leader in the trendy London afternoon tea scene, the iconic Strand Palace Hotel has been serving guests tea and cake in the heart of London since 1909. To kick start Christmas festivities in the capital and provide a welcome dose of Yuletide cheer, chefs at the famous London hotel have created a special Festive Afternoon Tea menu to be enjoyed in the glamorous surroundings of the hotel’s Gin Palace cocktail bar until 31 December 2016.
After a hard day of Christmas shopping with the winter sun disappearing by mid-afternoon, a festive afternoon tea is the perfect remedy for winter sustenance and seasonal indulgence. Located just off the Strand and minutes from bustling Covent Garden, the Strand Palace Hotel is perfectly positioned for a warming pick-me-up or a Christmas shopping home from home.
Traditional sandwich fillings have been swapped with much-loved Christmas flavours including turkey & cranberry, stilton & tomato pickle, egg mayonnaise with watercress and smoked salmon & horseradish varieties.
Festive favourites including mince pies, stollen bites and rich fruit cake marinated in house brandy provide Christmas-inspired sweet treats accompanied by chocolate & amaretto cheesecake, bosco tart and macaroons. The limited edition menu is completed with afternoon tea staples of freshly baked sultana scones served with clotted cream and strawberry preserve.
To accompany the mini delights, the Strand Palace Festive Afternoon Tea includes a warming glass of homemade spicy mulled wine to celebrate the season or a choice of loose leaf, herbal infused teas grown in the SACRED plantations in Sri Lanka.
