Hello! I got a birthday gift voucher for afternoon tea for 2 at Waldorf Astoria Syon Lane so it was time to drag my husband to one of these. He’s never been for one!! I usually go with my girlfriends, but since he loves food – I thought he would enjoy it 🙂
It was lovely as expected. 🙂
We obviously went for the vegetarian option and omitted the egg mayo with an avocado sandwich. It was yummy!
And here’s the result of our order…
3 layers of heaven! I’m going to say something pretty vain here but my scones are better. They are softer and yummier just FYI. Even my hubby said it – and no I didn’t bribe him to compliment me 🙂
Let’s look at each layer… Scrutinising food is always good 😉
Favourite dessert had to be the chocolate eclair. It was yummy with oozing custard inside.
My enchanted tea (so it was called) – was mysterious. Kind of reminded me of the enchanted magical forest. Yes I am in my own world. And yes, I love being in it! It had a fruity flavour and was pretty interesting.
To end the afternoon tea – since it was an all-inclusive: I ended it with a nice hot cappuccino!
Ok the scone was pretty good, how can anything topped up with clotted cream and jam go wrong?
