Mad Easter tea at Royal Horseguards Hotel.

The elegant lounge which sets you up for an indulgent Afternoon Tea

The five-star Royal Horseguards Hotel is one of the most reliable London hotels for afternoon tea.  Having sampled a host of the hotels’s themed teas before, including Guy Fawkes Day which featured TNT gunpowder truffles and Valentine’s Day which included a chocolate fondue, I feel well-qualified to say that this is one hotel which really puts the effort in!

The children’s afternoon tea comes with gingerbread man and fruit kebab!

Afternoon tea is served in the lounge which feels very decadent – the perfect place to indulge.  When we visited this time we tried the Signature Tea (£28pp) served with a traditional selection of finger sandwiches (topped up if and when required), homemade cakes and warm, fresh scones with jam and cream.

The traditional tea comes with a pot of leaf or herbal tea – I can recommend the ‘strawberries & cream’ flavoured tea leaves, specially created for the hotel.  Children are very welcome and are even offered a kids’ version of afternoon tea which comes with shaped sandwiches, colouring book, puzzle and a baby chai latte, babychino or fruit juice.

Fresh, warm scones anyone?

For Easter the hotel has created a special Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea inspired by Alice in Wonderland and featuring bubbling potions, Jame tarts with hearts, white rabbits and Battenberg chessboards.  The tea runs from 31st March to 15th April 2012 and costs from £35 per person.

If you can’t make Easter tea then keep an eye out for the Jubilee Tea served from 21 May until 17 June 2012, Wimbledon-themed tea and various other creations which crop up…fingers crossed there will be an Olympic Tea!
