If a spot of tea is what you are after one afternoon why not pop in to Harvey Nichols and up to the 5th Floor where a rather special kind of afternoon tea is being served. 

And when I say special, I truly mean special. Inspired by Laura Merciers delicious fragrance Vanille Gourmande  Harvey Nichols’ own master tea blenders have created a new blend of tea leaves that is every bit as lush as the fragrance.  

This sweet-scented and luscious blend of vanilla, rose, jasmine and green Chinese tea, accompanied by some delightful treats by Executive Chef Jonas Karlsson, will have you booking tables for the rest of the summer.
