When fashion and tea collide

Cake

I love art. I love food. I love fashion. If you feel the same, you have to try the fashion afternoon tea at The Berkeley.

The entire afternoon tea was inspired by the Spring/Summer 2012 collections of some of the worlds top designers. My favourite was the coloured mouse with Lemon meringue which drew its looks from a summer Mulberry dress. Some of the other treats:

And it is all served on beautiful Paul Smith china.

Top Tip #1: if you finish your treats you can always ask for refills, they keep bringing you cakes until you could simply burst.

Top Tip #2: get one of the special fruit teas, they are dried fruit that you put in your cup and pour boiling water over. The fruit infuses the water with stunning flavour, and you can eat the fruit at the end.

    Fun idea and that tea cup is stunning! I enjoyed reading this, but I wish the guys behind the concept had looked up the definition of high tea (as opposed to afternoon tea), šŸ™‚ !
