Spring, it’s a time of new life, new starts and new beginnings. Sure, we can spring clean and set ourselves new goals, but you know what we also like? When menus get a makeover, fitting then that one of London’s favourite afternoon teas, the Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea at Sanderson, is being relaunched today with new whimsical touches and Alice in Wonderland inspired flourishes.
The menu (which you’ll find hidden inside vintage books) includes the likes of scones, smoked salmon Scotch quail’s egg with caviar and cream cheese and a stack of King of Hearts parmesan croque-monsieur. As for the new additions, you’ll find a mocha chessboard gateau; chocolate and pistachio blue caterpillar, a Tweedle Dee lemon curd financier and Alice’s cinnamon, apple and peach ‘Drink Me’ potion.
Alongside potions there’ll be tailor-made teas inspired by the characters, Perrier-Jouët Champagne and wonderland themed cocktails like The Rabbit Sends a Little Green Bill, a refreshing cocktail of apple, mint, cucumber, lime and garnished with celery.
They’ve also said that the Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea will evolve seasonally so expect more changes to follow later this year.
Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea is served daily.
