Afternoon tea reviews
A long-term lover of afternoon tea, it has ‘accidentally’ became a tradition of mine to have afternoon tea at each new destination I visit. The idea all began during my first trip to Asia, when I visited Hong Kong and decided that I just had to have afternoon tea at The Peninsula. Chatting over the scones I started talking about how great it would be to try out different afternoon teas around the world and in that moment my ‘Global Afternoon Tea Challenge’ was born! Since then I’ve been on the look out for exciting, quirky or renowned afternoon teas wherever I travel – and I regularly make time for afternoon teas at home here in the UK. Here’s where my Global Afternoon Tea Challenge has taken me so far! Keri x
Karis and I recently had afternoon tea at the Ivy Clifton Brasserie in Bristol, to try out their summer special twist, the introduction of the Ivy Nursery Pot.
During my recent day trip to Oxford with Marco Polo we stopped off for a champagne afternoon tea at the Vaults and Garden Café. It’s got an amazing spot in the city, just opposite the Radcliffe Camera, however this café is a spectacle of its own. Housed in St Mary’s Church, the café’s main dining area is set in Oxford University’s Old Congregation House, the city’s first central university building, which was built back in 1320. It’s a beautiful setting for afternoon tea, with its old brick walls and gorgeous vaulted ceiling, but on sunny days you also have the option to venture out into the gardens and enjoy your tea…
