This summer, Rotunda at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square unveils its new Heritage Afternoon Tea, based on the iconic building’s history.
Rotunda’s Afternoon Tea will include brews from the foothills of the Himalayas with the finest darjeeling from Makaibari to Earl Greys from Satemwa Estate in the highlands of Malawi.
A selection of Chinese teas will include a rare oolong from Anxi and white jasmine and peony teas from the coastal Fujian province, which journeyed to London via the East China Sea.
Herbal teas grown in Cornwall will balance the international offering, while Champagnes will include Delamotte Brut, Charles Heidsieck and AR Lenoble Rosé available by the glass.
Laden with traditional finger sandwiches, the tea stands will celebrate British classics including egg mayonnaise with truffle oil; coronation chicken, and the classic minted cucumber.
Alongside the sandwiches there will be seasonal pastries such as strawberry and sansho, apricot and verbena, passion fruit ganache atop chocolate sablé and chocolate mousse as well as the essential homemade scones with seasonal jams and Devonshire clotted cream.
Rotunda’s new Heritage Afternoon Tea is available all week between 2:00 and 5:00 pm.
