Guilt-Free Tea at Wellington Lounge

Guilt-Free Tea at Wellington Lounge

Cream tea: quintessentially British but essentially fattening. Not what we need in January when our trousers are more than a little tight after a month of gorging on mince pies and chocolate coins.

Step forward the sympathetic lot at the award-winning Wellington Lounge, who’ve created a ‘Guiltless Afternoon Tea’ to bring a splash of joy to the month of gym classes and alcohol abstinence. Completely free of refined sugar and packed full of naturally nutrient-rich ingredients (with gluten and dairy free options also available), one could go so far as to say this tea is actually good for you. We definitely don’t need much convincing anyway…

Surely there can’t be actual cakes and other goodies in all this? Wrong. The sweet selection is to die for; choose from blueberry and yoghurt chiffon cake, flourless chocolate mint cake with spearmint mousse and, all-time favourite, red velvet cake with quinoa and panela (raw cane sugar).

If sweetness isn’t your thing tuck into the delightful array of Market Garden sandwiches, made from British produce and seasonal veg. It’s basically like an upmarket children’s tea party but without the tears. Because it’s Totally.Guilt.Free.
