While in London a few weeks ago Kris and I decided to partake in one of our very favorite activities, Afternoon Tea, of course! I was originally planning on booking tea at the Savoy until I heard about this extra special, extra unusual tea on offer at the Sanderson Hotel. They decided to take the sophisticated custom and turn it on its head before pushing it straight down the rabbit hole to Wonderland. This is the Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea!
I have to admit, I felt like a kid at Christmas when brought face to face with all this wonderous fare. Rainbow sandwiches with spinach, saffron and beetroot bread, lollypops which explode in your mouth and even a drink me bottle which turns from apple pie to lemon curd to burnt toffee as you sup. All of this was delivered in the beautiful surroundings of the hotel garden / conservatory. It just couldn’t get any better.
I can’t even begin to describe to you what a magical experience this was, I can only implore you to go and see for yourself!
I shall leave you with the wise words of Alice herself, taataa…
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?
