afternoon tea - Corinthia Hotel London

Monday, May 14, 2012

Once upon a beautiful London Saturday afternoon a group of girls (or ladies) decided to splash out on yummy afternoon tea. So they put on their best lady-like dresses and sling back shoes, downed a few home-made cocktails - and headed for the fanciest place they could find.

Oh yes, it was scrumptious.....

to start - home-made vodka mojitos

to follow, a selection of sandwiches

English Rose tea - a fine Chinese speciality black tea blended with pink rose petals

next came the soft, fluffy scones with home-made raspberry jam and clotted cream

...and many, many beautiful cakes and sweets...

salted caramel mousse cake

rhubarb meringue pie

toasted coffee and chocolate slice

If you would like to sample these delights visit The Lobby Lounge, Corinthia Hotel

The Tea Party
I had a little tea party 
This afternoon at three. 
'Twas very small-
Three guest in all-
Just I, myself and me.
Myself ate all the sandwiches, 
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.
