The OSCARS of the tea world

When it comes to afternoon tea I’m prepared to go the distance and now I know where to go. Palm Court at The Langham in London has been awarded The Tea Guild’s Top London Afternoon Tea 2010 Award. This award is considered the ‘OSCARS’ of the tea world.

With more than 30 varieties of tea, including the Langham’s signature blend and a wide range of finger sandwiches, cakes and miniature pastries, afternoon tea takers at Palm Court are spoilt for choice. The hotel’s tea sommelier helps you find the perfect blend, while a variety of menu options fit any occasion or taste.

Anyone that gets here before me, please report back!
