Would You Pay £500 For A Cup Of Tea?

‘Tea for two, and two for tea, just me for you and’ – HOW MUCH? ‘Tap water for two, and two for tap water…’ as the song didn’t quite go. As a nation we’re obsessed with tea, we consume it by the gallon, we even built an entire empire on it (well, that and subjugation of native peoples, exploitation of natural resources, overcoming malaria with gins and tonic and playing too much cricket – so all the good stuff). But how far would you go for the perfect cuppa? And do you have £500 spare? If so then order an […]

Want To Win Instagram? Head To Fendi Caffe At Harrods

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an influencer in possession of a large following must be in want of a new, highly fashionable, coffee and cakes shop, ideally from a leading fashion house. And while there’s nothing like posting pics of an expensive Italian fashion brand to absolutely rake in the Insta likes, a Fendi bag will set you back three grand; which is where Fendi Caffe at Harrods comes in… a Machiato and cutesy bag biscuit will only set you back £4.75. Instant Insta fame on a budget. Fendi Caffe is the next cataclysmic influencer magnet, if your […]

The Limited Edition Royal-Tea You Won’t Want To Miss

Queen Victoria was a pretty interesting woman. In her lifetime she survived multiple assassins, she was barely five feet tall, she was the first ever royal to live at Buckingham Palace and her name wasn’t even Victoria! Suffice to say there was rarely a dull day in the life of the old monarch, which is why her 200th birthday is worth shouting about… or stuffing your face with cake, either one! The Milestone Hotel & Residences has created a quintessentially British feast to pay homage to the anniversary that, we’re sure, would’ve captured the attention of Queen Vic.

The 5* Christmas Afternoon Tea You Need To Check Out

What: It’s safe to say the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park has had quite the year, it was meant to be the year they celebrated the end of their major 18-month refurbishment project. However, disaster struck in the form of the fire at the start of June. Six months later the hotel has picked itself back up, dusted itself off and kept going, after all it is the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. Set to fully open in Spring 2019, the spa, event spaces and restaurants have now reopened just in time for Christmas. We went to toast the iconic hotel and […]

Posh Tea: Victoria Beckham’s Afternoon Tea

It’s that time of year again where The Berkeley introduce their coveted Prêt-à-Portea afternoon tea menu, inspired by all of the fashion happenings of the year and trust us, it’s a good’un! Posh Spice might not be going all aboard the tour train as her ex band mates announce the news of their re-grouping, but she does feature rather spectacularly in the afternoon tea. The banquet features a Victoria Beckham based offering in the form of a Victoria sponge (Berkeley, we see what you did there) inspired by Victoria Beckham’s legs-out-of-a-shopping-bag 10th anniversary campaign.
