A Taste Of Royalty With The Crown Jewels Afternoon Tea At Four Seasons Hotel London At Ten Trinity Square

April 23, 2019 Food & Beverage No Comments Email Email

This April, Rotunda at Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square unveils its Crown Jewels Afternoon Tea. Overlooking the Tower of London, which houses the royal jewels of past kings and queens of England, Rotunda at Ten Trinity Square will celebrate the most visited artefacts in Britain with its new afternoon tea. For the ultimate luxury experience, guests can book a private roof terrace where they can enjoy the quintessential British pastime with a view over the iconic landmark and the River Thames.

On the menu, traditional finger sandwiches created by Rotunda’s Executive Chef David Greenhill celebrate British classics including egg mayonnaise with truffle oil, coronation chicken and the classic minted cucumber. Inspired by the world-famous Crown Jewels, Executive Pastry Chef Sylvain Nicolas has created a selection of pastries including a griotte amarena cherry and liquorice macaron topped with a silver jewel; Yorkshire rhubarb, jasmine tea, chantilly and strawberry combawa confit adorned with a crown; a citrusy lemon meringue choux with hazelnut streusel and lime jelly; and finally a single origin Madagascan Manjari chocolate tart with sansho berry and fresh raspberries, topped with gold leaf. No British afternoon tea would be complete without freshly baked homemade scones with seasonal jams and Devonshire clotted cream, all served on the handcrafted bone china heritage tea service designed by prominent British designer Richard Brendon.

Paying homage to Ten Trinity Square’s past incarnation as the hub of Britain’s trading routes, the Crown Jewels Afternoon Tea includes some of the world’s top teas from the foothills of the Himalayas with the finest darjeeling from Makaibari to Earl Greys from Satemwa Estate in the highlands of Malawi, while British-grown brews include Cornish peppermint tea and Cornish manuka brought to the Tregothan Estate in Cornwall more than 200 years ago from New Zealand. Champagnes will include Delamotte Brut, Charles Heidsieck and AR Lenoble Rosé available by the glass.

“Afternoon tea is such a staple of British culture, so we wanted to honour that with a traditional menu inspired by the royal Crown Jewels just a short walk away from the impressive building at Ten Trinity Square. We have aimed to celebrate the best of British, highlighting some of the best teas and produce from around the country,” says Executive Chef David Greenhill.

The Crown Jewels Afternoon Tea os served in the Rotunda daily between 2:00 and 5:00 pm.

  • Crown Jewels Afternoon Tea – GBP 35
  • Champagne Afternoon Tea – GBP 38
