Fancy for some Mad Hatter’s Tea? Drink me!!!
This is another afternoon tea place in London that has a special theme – the Alice in Wonderland theme. The hotel where you can have this tea is actually a pretty modern and contemporary hotel. The tea room is a semi-outdoor and rather “zen-like” garden. The main…theme here is manifested on the plates.

The afternoon tea set comes with a cocktail, the savory and sweet (3-tier) dessert and tea. You can choose traditional tea, or you can choose something like this flowering tea.
Rainbow colored fingers sandwich. The savory sandwiches and the butter and jam for the scones.
Queen of Hearts Strawberry & Cream Moose.
The heart-shape dessert that echoes the Alice theme and says “Eat me”. It’s white chocolate on the outside and moose inside.. but I must say this is a bit too sweet…
Traditional scones and a clock cake – Chocolate Opera Rabbit’s Clock.
You also get some nice lollipops that gives you a fizz – Blueberry lollipop and Hazelnut Praline ice-cream lollipop. And the other good “potion” is in that “Drink Me” bottle. Passion fruit jelly with coconut pana-cotta and exotic foam.

In general, I think the afternoon tea here is just alright.. Don’t think it’s refillable and the sweet ones are a bit too sweet. Would be better if they have more variety too. But the Alice in Wonderland theme is quite novel and cute.
