Lydia told me how great this afternoon tea is, the service was great and there is a brilliant tea selection too. As well as traditional and herbal teas, there is also a great selection of seasonal teas:
THE AUTUMN TEA SELECTION
SWEET ALMOND TEA
China black tea delicately infused with sweet almond.
Soft, mellow and soothing
MANDARIN AND ORANGE SPICE
The headiness of orange blossom infused with China black tea and hint of
cinnamon and cloves, culminating in a truly fragrant and revitalising tea
Classic Ceylon black tea combined with coconut creates perfectly sweet
and rich tea, with nutty flavor
THE CITRUS SENSATION
With a combination of cranberry, orange and rooibos,
this citrus blend mixes fruit sensations with a subtle floral bouquet,
to provide a truly fragrant tea
A soft, round tea with fresh apple flavor, warm and calming blend
Green tea infused with plum and cinnamon
LADY GREY IN WAITING
Take on the Earl Grey tea, fragrant, bright and light black tea infused with
Bergamot oil and delicious citrus peel
I think the sugar plum tea sounds wonderful!
