Afternoon Tea at the Lanesborough in London

October 7, 2009 By:Daniel L. Moses

The LanesboroughEngland is a nation of traditions and ceremony. These traditions permeate the life of all of its denizens, and no more so than in bustling London. And deep in the heart of London at Hyde Park Corner, The Lanesborough stakes its reputation on honoring those traditions and ceremony, including a decadent and exceptional Afternoon Tea. But don't just take The Lanesborough's word for it, rather perhaps the 2008 "Best Afternoon Tea in London" award by the United Kingdom's Tea Council will convince you, or the 2009 "Award of Excellence" by that same austere body. With fresh-baked scones, thick clotted cream, and home made fruit preserves, indulgences are certainly plentiful and give guests a reason to return again and again. Yet the tea itself entices even more, and with England's first tea sommelier, Karl Kessab, to guide visitors through the many choices, no one leaves dissatisfied. So spend an afternoon with The Lanesborough, and you might find that just one afternoon isn't near enough.
