Crisp and Colourful Autumn Afternoon Tea at Conrad London St James
LONDON - The Autumn Afternoon Tea at Conrad London St. James celebrates the abundance of the harvest season and the chill in the air as the nights draw in. The tea has been created by Executive Pastry Chef Diana Sedlakova, who has elegantly blended the traditions of a classic afternoon tea with contemporary techniques, all inspired by the colours and flavours of the time of year. The Autumn Afternoon Tea is served in the stylish Emmeline's Lounge, named after the 19th Century British political activist Emmeline Pankhurst.
Using the finest seasonal ingredients, the menu begins with a selection of savouries including Pheasant, pumpkin and toffee apple pasty with sage and Smoked mackerel pâté and pickled cucumber on toasted brioche. These are followed by sandwiches with familiar flavours including Honey and mustard Wiltshire ham on cranberry bread, alongside twists on the classics such as Pickled cucumber with lemon and mint cream cheese on beetroot bread.
Seasonal cakes and pastries include Mini candy apples; Pumpkin and mascarpone tartlets; and Chocolate and cherry forest madeleines. Finally, no afternoon tea would be complete without fresh scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam and, in this case, a zesty lemon curd.
There is an extensive range of teas from Harney & Sons to choose from, including Earl Grey blue flowers and Jasmine silver needle. Tea sommeliers are on hand to ensure a personalised experience, giving guests the opportunity to breathe in the aroma of each before making their selection. Alternatively, guests can opt for a little extra luxury with free-flowing Champagne available throughout the week, the perfect addition to this quintessentially British treat.
