Afternoon Tea News - Into the Woods Afternoon Tea

Hello there,

Welcome back to another afternoon tea news article from Tea With Me and Friends.

Recently we were invited to attend a press day at Sketch in London to sample their new themed afternoon tea based on Into the Woods. Unfortunately we couldn't make the event, but we loved the photos we saw of this tea that we just had to share it with you anyway.....

Sketch have also sent us the following details to make our mouths water some more....

To mark the Blu-ray™ and DVD release of Disney’s musical masterpiece Into the Woods, London Mayfair venue sketch has teamed up with the film to create a limited edition run of its afternoon tea. ‘Tea in The Woods’ will be available at sketch for three weeks from Monday 18th May – Sunday 7th June. 

The inspired menu has re-created some of the classic Afternoon Tea elements and given them a fairytale, woodland makeover – with items fit for any basket to take to grandma’s house. Included in the re-vamped tea is Little Red Riding Hood’s Choux, Jack’s Beanstalk Tart and a Prince Charming Green ‘Sand-Witch’, all complemented by the Baker and His Wife’s selection of sketch pastries.

HervĂ© Deville and Christophe Gasper, Executive and Pastry Chefs at sketch, comment: “Fantasy, fairytale, magic, colours and textures are words and adjectives that sketch has in common with Disney… We were naturally inspired as we always enjoy telling a story through our menus!” 

At £39 per person, afternoon tea can either be pre-booked for The Gallery online, or taken in The Glade Room on a walk-in basis. The first 30 people to book Tea in the Woods will win a copy of the film and the award-winning soundtrack – a must for all musical fans and Disney enthusiasts.
