The Lanesborough Afternoon TeaEarning the Award of Excellence more times than it would be polite to mention in recent years, an afternoon brew at The Lanesborough is a bit of a treat. The stylish early 19th century hotel sits right on Hyde Park Corner and tea is served in its recently reopened restaurant, Celeste, with its beautiful glass roof. The formal ceremony of afternoon tea here takes on an indisputable air of sophistication with the steaming tea served from silver pots - a Russian samovar if you need to know - and poured into fine bone china cups, a stack of crustless finger sandwiches to accompany it. They don't mess around here, employing a dedicated 'tea sommelier' who takes the job of tea buying very seriously - most are purchased at auction. Green, black and white teas are all on the menu, from Gunpowder to Jasmine Pearls - it's a bewildering choice so don't be afraid to ask for advice. There are several different types of afternoon tea price packages to choose from, all of which come with a freshly baked scones, thick clotted cream and home made fruit preserves.
