How about spiced cloves, brandy mousse, gingerbread, chestnut and clementines? The Savoy certainly thinks so. This Christmas, The Savoy brings you the sights, scents and tastes of a Victorian Christmas with their 'Scents of Christmas' festive afternoon tea.
Tuck into a delicious mulled wine eclair, a spiced scone with ginger jam and clotted cream or santa hat decorated profiteroles. Or, for the savoury seekers amongst you, sink your teeth into the most decadent array of finger sandwiches piled high on silver afternoon tea stands. Pair with a spot of vanilla spiced tea or a glass of Louis Roederer vintage champagne 2009 for a treat worth its age.
Settling in for an afternoon under the glass domed roof of the Savoy's Thames Foyer is a real festive treat. Glittering with soft winter lights, vermillion red baubles and Christmas wreaths, the Thames Foyer has been transformed into a veritable winter wonderland. The live pianist playing Christmas tunes in the centre of the room only adds to the festive atmosphere.
We're sure that it'll be difficult to find an afternoon more festive than this.
Price per person: afternoon tea: £68.00. With champagne: £120.00
