Make a show of it
Paul Hamlyn Hall is one of the most beautiful rooms in London so is an apt place to this limited edition floral tea. In addition to the good old favourites, a couple of the finger sandwiches have been upgraded to fresh and flavoursome lobster and salt beef fillings. The pastries are pretty decadent too – there’s a light elderflower and mandarin amandine, and Champagne baba with rose petals and Ruinart rose amongst the treats. And as a token to remember the experience by, all guests leave with a complimentary fragrance of their choice from the L’Occitane La Collection de Grasse collection.
