Take Me There: 🎄 🎄 🎄 🎄 🎄 🎄 🎄 🎄 🎄 9/10
If you’re looking for a sweet (and warm) way to celebrate the season this winter, this is it.
London’s Chesterfield Mayfair Hotel is hosting a Winter Wonderland afternoon tea, and it looks every bit as magical as it sounds.
Away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas shoppers on Oxford Street, and the rides at the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, this festive afternoon tea is a lovely way to unwind and enjoy some light bites and treats in a beautiful setting. The experience begins with some mulled wine (because, I mean, of course), after which diners may choose to continue with tea or a glass of champagne. The selection of teas is plenty, and even includes a specialty Chesterfield Christmas Blend.
Prepared by Chef Patissier Tom, the food menu reads like a stroll in the snow. On the sweet side, there’s everything from cranberry mousse, a chestnut macaron, and a chocolate yule log, over to a blackforest cupcake and a beautiful salted caramel and chocolate present. Sure to make you smile (and take out your smartphone) is also a Christmas tree chocolate and coffee pot, which look convincingly like teeny tiny plants, but are definitely (and deliciously) edible.
On the savoury side, diners get to enjoy a selection of homemade sandwiches, filled with Christmassy-allsorts, from turkey and cranberry over to the classic of cucumber and cream cheese. There are also vegetarian and gluten-free options available, as well as a special afternoon tea for ‘little elves’ (includes plain sandwiches and milkshakes).
Really, the whole thing sounds like something straight out of our favourite Christmas movie.
