Time for Tea.....The Goring

Hello there,

Welcome back to another afternoon tea blog post from Tea With Me and Friends. This time we have another fab guest post for you as we are joined by the lovely Beverley from Try Nordic who recently enjoyed afternoon tea at The Goring in London.

The Goring has been serving afternoon tea for over 100 years and in 2013 they were awarded the coveted Top London Afternoon Tea Award by the UK Tea Guild. With this in mind I was keen to hear about Beverley's experience.....

Beverley reported that the sandwich selection was nice, with traditional fillings such as chicken, cucumber, ham and mustard and our favourite filling - egg mayonnaise.

The scones were very light, and were served with preserve and clotted cream. The pastries which were served consisted of a pistachio tartlet, a cherry chocolate slice, a lemon curd profiterole, a blood orange macaroon, a white chocolate tea cake and a rhubarb treat served in a shot glass - a bit like a trifle, but not a trifle! Don't they all sound wonderful? I think the blood orange macaroon intrigues me the most.

Beverley commented that the service was brilliant and the ambiance wonderful. The hotel had a very calm and pleasant atmosphere, making it a rather enjoyable and relaxed afternoon tea adventure!

A traditional afternoon tea at The Goring costs £39.00 per person, or you can indulge in The Bollinger Tea which includes a glass of Bollinger and fresh strawberries for £49.00 per person. For more information please visit The Goring website.

I'd like to say a huge thank you to Beverley for sharing her afternoon tea with us. If you have enjoyed an afternoon tea that you would like to share with us please get in touch.

Thank you for popping by today,
Rachel

Thanks for your very kind comment! It's great to meet tea lovers around the world. I will be visiting London for a day this month! Am thinking of trying the Flower Show afternoon tea at Intercontinental Westminster or Mad Hatter's Tea at Sanderson. Which would you recommend? :)
