Feeling less peckish than we previously thought, we decided to share an afternoon tea. We each chose a sandwich, the ispahan and a mini viennoiserie – just the right amount! We then enjoyed a pot of earl grey, and I ordered a separate hot chocolate – which is the most velvety, delectable hot chocolate I have ever come across.
The carefully wrapped sandwiches (smoked salmon and beaufort cheese) were modest but flavoursome and the sugar brioche was divine. Whilst the savoury treats were delicious, we both pursued the vibrant pink ispahan that stood out like a glistening jewel against the silver tea stand. Dreamy rose petal cream and succulent raspberries enveloped between two rose macaroons adorned in red rose petals and lychees – it really was a heavenly as it sounds!
