Hop(p)ing for a happy Easter? You’re guaranteed a delectable and playful one with the limited run Easter Afternoon Tea offering by The Langham London’s Executive Pastry Chef Cherish Finden.
As yummy as it is elegant and as exquisitely executed as it is super cute, the limited run tea commences with a lemon posset amuse bouche and ends with a selection of pastries displayed as a scampering Easter Bunny scene that’s almost too adorable to eat – but definitely too delicious not too.
Highlights include a “Bunny See-Saw” made with 64% chocolate mousseline, raspberry, and pistachio financier, ‘The Rabbits Warren” pastry served in a towering glass, representing the tunnel journey made by the Easter rabbit, served with Milk chocolate Chantilly made of the bespoke No.150 Langham chocolate., and “Bunny Show Jumping” creation featuring the three stages of show jumping, with three Easter bunny figurines set among a white chocolate mousse and tropical jelly creation.
Of course, service wouldn’t be complete without dainty sandwiches and scones with jam and clotted cream. I reckon the black truffle duck egg brioche and peppered beef pastrami sandwiches are reason enough to pay a visit anytime. Upping the Easter ante for this week, traditional scones are accompanied by “hot cross” scones.
As for the actual tea to be sipped, a full flavoured Langham Blend for the initial savouries and the light and aromatic Silk Road Blend silver needle white tea are ideal at the end should prove ideal pairings, but expect to be impressed by a broad selection of teas.
The Langham London’s Easter Afternoon Tea is available in the hotel’s Palm Court from today until 28 March with seatings at 1pm, 3.15pm and 5.30pm. The tea is priced at £49 per person, £59 per person including a glass of N.V Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne and £64 per person including a glass of N.V Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne Rosé.
