London’s historic home of the afternoon tea – and one of the most stylish venues I’ve yet to encounter in this town – The Langham London has collaborated with leading luxury brand Wedgwood to launch a new afternoon tea featuring a special menu of delectably dainty creations by Executive Pastry Chef Cherish Finden (one of my London foodie heroes!) inspired by and to be served alongside Wedgwood specialty teas in bespoke “Langham Rose” Wedgwood teaware. Launching across all The Langham and Langham Place hotels and ahead of The Langham London’s 150th anniversary in 2015, new tea offering is available now.
The Langham Afternoon Tea with Wedgwood presents yet another in a long list of reasons to visit this deluxe property just a short stroll (and a world away) from the bustle of Oxford Circus.
With moreish memories of my own Langham experiences, I was certainly keen to attend its preview and have a taste for myself. From the “pink pepper brûlée with pine nuts” amuse bouche to my last sip of Langham blend tea, everything about the tea was a delight. Particularly wonderful highlights included an irresistible smoked mountain ham sandwich with Comté and white truffle oil and a “Hathaway Rose Motif – English Rose and lychee log”.
The Wedgwood Afternoon Tea costs £47 per person (£57 with a glass of NV Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne, or £62 with of a glass of NV Laurent-Perrier Rosé Champagne) and offered in the hotel’s Art Deco, ultra luxe Palm Court.
The Langham London is located at 1C Portland Place, Regent Street, W1B 1JA. Find out more at london.langhamhotels.co.uk.
