A Selection of Christmas Afternoon Teas.....

....to make you drool!

Hello there, welcome back to another Christmas afternoon tea post from Tea With Me and Friends. As you know we have been trawling the internet looking at all the lovely places you can enjoy a festive themed afternoon tea this year....we've already shared lots of scrummy photos with you...but today we thought we'd share some more (you can never have too much tea!).

So, we start with this scrummy creation from Park Room at Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel....

Afternoon tea Park Room
The savouries here include Home Smoked Turkey with Cranberry Sauce and Honey Roast Ham with English Mustard sandwiches. While amongst the sweets you will find Orange & Polenta Cake
and Chocolate & Chestnut Roulade.

Or if you fancy something a little more contemporary, maybe the Lancaster Hotel would be a good option....

This festive Afternoon Tea features Christmas pudding scones, and a roast turkey and cranberry tartlet, along with more traditional items such as cucumber sandwiches and  raspberry macaroons.

You can enjoy mini Christmas puds at the Royal HorseGuards Hotel....

This festive treat includes Mini Homemade Mince Pies, Candy Cane Vanilla Shortbread and Chilli Pineapple and Mount Gay Rum Truffle, along with a glass of spiced champagne. My mouth is watering as I am typing this!

Somewhere rather different that we have not thought of before for a spot of afternoon tea is the Hilton London Gatwick Hotel, the hotel is situated 30 minutes from central London with access to both the M23 and M25 motorways...... take a peek at their scrummy creation....

This tea features White Chocolate & Coconut baubles and Chocolate and orange Baubles! You can also enjoy Apple and cinnamon scones with Sweet Apple chutney and Calvados cream.

Finally I have found this wonderful looking afternoon tea currently being served at The Langham.....

Wedgwood Festive Afternoon Tea - The Langham

Because this looks so amazing (and we love china) we thought you'd appreciate a closer peek at that top tier of sweet treats.....

This festive afternoon tea includes pastries inspired by the Wedgwood Collections, including Wedgwood Tea Cups - White chocolate mousse, tropical jelly and dark chocolate sable and "White Cameo on Blue" - Strawberry and white balsamic Victoria sponge.

This has to be one of the prettiest afternoon teas I have seen recently.

We hope you've enjoyed taking a peek at these festive afternoon teas, if you enjoy one of these or another festive afternoon tea, we'd love to hear all about it!

Thank you for popping by today,
Rachel & Lorna
