We can’t say we’d ever want our Earl Grey shaken but a James Bond inspired afternoon tea promises drinks to be stirred not shaken. On the 26th October we will be able to feast our eyes on our favourite tuxedo-clad secret service agent as Daniel Craig hits the big screen for the fourth time. Fingers crossed that the white trunks will make another appearance but we won’t hold our breath.

In the meantime we Brits will turn to the only thing we know in times of suspense, anticipation or downright boredom; tea. Luckily for us the ‘stirred not shaken’ afternoon tea at Jumeirah Carlton Tower can satisfy this need. Live like a true Bond or Bond girl and hit the nearby shops of Knightsbridge before to kit yourself out. Brioche buns with roast peppered beef and lemon thyme muffin with smoked salmon and shaved caviar sit proudly on the menu alongside the ‘From Russia With Love’ raspberry chocolate mousse volcano with matryoshka (Russian doll). We will be rounding things off with the apple tonka dome mousse drizzled in salted caramel sauce served, of course, in a mini martini glass. We think we’ll diet another day…

Available from 6th October to 23rd November at Jumeirah Carlton Tower.
