We were lucky enough to be invited to the 2017 Afternoon Tea Awards, celebrating the best Afternoon Teas to be enjoyed in the UK. The event was hosted in the sumptuous surroundings of 5 star Grosvenor House Hotel, Mayfair.

Lanson Champagne accompanied a quirky afternoon tea beautifully presented, featuring cream scones in terracotta flower pots, burned caramel chocolates with popping candy and delicate hand-crafted pastries in bird cages. Tea was on hand thanks to Newby Teas.
