A luxury afternoon tea is an art, a culture and a must. There is something so wonderfully decadent and relaxing about taking the whole afternoon off and drinking champagne, sipping tea and nibbling on an array of beautifully presented and sublimely tasty sandwiches, cakes and scones.
Elegantly served and enhanced by some of the world’s most fragrant teas. This is indeed what happens if you added a pinch of glamour, a zest of frivolity and good dose of luxury, topped with a healthy layer of elegance.

The dazzling Palm Court is famed as the place where the tradition of afternoon tea was born over 150 years ago, an indulgence that lives on today as Tiffin at The Langham.
Serving afternoon tea to the cream of London since 1865, the dazzling Palm Court delights guests with a bespoke version of the afternoon tea tradition.
The Palm Court is one of my favourite little hideaways in central London.
Joined by a good friend, as afternoon tea should, we started at three’sh and left at something past seven in the evening.
Tea flowed as did the champagne and my taste buds were enriched by trays of afternoon fancies.
We both agreed it’s a perfect place to unwind and the fact it is windowless adds rather than distracts as you are focused on who you are with and the gentle toing and froing of guests that makes one forget about time.
I thoroughly recommend a few hours of repartee, piano, seclusion, cocooned in a little bubble.
The décor with its Hollywoodesque glamour is spot on adding to one’s decadence which is never a bad thing and you are comfortable which is a big thing for me.
Pleasurable, sophisticated, charming and elegant and yes “well yes just one more champagne”
