Why do we love Chelsea Flower Show? Yes we love the flowers and gardens but we also love how many of London’s most beloved hotels are celebrating this truly British event with another, afternoon tea. None more so than the Corinthia. Running from 21st May until the 25th their Secret Garden Afternoon tea can be taken under the Baccarat Full Moon chandelier in the Lobby Lounge or al fresco in the courtyard.
Taking inspiration from different gardens and gardening terms the tea includes cakes inspired by English rose gardens, herb gardens and Chinese gardens, which is a chocolate bamboo cane embellished with oriental butterflies. Also making appearances are ‘The Potting Shed’ an adorable little miniature flower pot made from fudge cake and the wonderfully romantic ‘Late Summer Harvest’ a raspberry mousse shot served with a violet macaroon. Come Chelsea Flower Show we know where we will be taking afternoon tea.
