Team GB Afternoon Tea at The Langham

Tea GB cakesGo for afternoon tea with a difference at The Langham, as the iconic London hotel redesigns their classic service in honour of Team GB.

If like us you still don’t know what to do with yourself now the Olympics are over, get yourselves down to London’s iconic Langham Hotel for an afternoon celebrating our sporting heroes.

‘Tea GB’ has turned The Langham’s traditional high tea on its head with a redesign that’ll certainly put it in first place as one of London’s most exquisite afternoon tea spots. The service is available now and throughout September, and has been created in homage to all those medal winners that made Britain proud.

The updated Wonderland Tea will be served in The Langham’s renowned Palm Court where the tradition was actually born some 140 years ago. Through the opulent iron gates guests will find a regal room decked out in plush fabrics and colours – it’s a real London must-visit if you’ve not been before.

The hotel’s tea sommelier will be on hand to share his knowledge and tips to guests, who will no doubt be utterly impressed with The Langham’s extensive list of teas and blends.

To accompany the refreshments, a specially designed selection of Team GB treats will be on offer, which will not only be a feast for the taste buds but for the eyes too. Included in the menu are; The Torch – a Cornish sea salt caramel filled cone made using the best of British ingredients, and The Raspberry Dome – a sports ball shaped creation filled with Kent’s finest berries. Guests will also be treated to The Tower – a tall white chocolate and passion fruit delight, and last but not least a macaroon emblazoned with the patriotic Union Jack.

It’s sure to be a haven for food lovers, tea enthusiasts or those simply suffering Olympic withdrawal.

Tea GB runs from 14 August and throughout September 2012. Available in Palm Court at The Langham, London, it is priced at £40 per person.
