As London’s oldest hotel (it opened in 1837) Brown’s embodies the refined glamour one can only truly expect from the English.
Walking into The English Tea Room a pianist compliments the sound of tinkling china and small groups of women are talking softly over their surrounding shopping – surely gained from nearby New Bond Street.
Two menus are on offer: Tea-tox features healthy options – gem heart leaves stuffed with tabbouleh and chocolate-raspberry soya slice- and the Agatha Christie Afternoon Tea pays tribute to her crime novels and the large amount of time she spent writing there.
The Tea-tox is a lovely and light alternative to the rich traditional service which is usually served.
Importantly, the 17 teas on offer are divine, I enjoyed the Rooibos, or indulge in Ruinart.
Another luxurious afternoon to add to your list!
