National Afternoon Tea Week

August 18, 2018

OK, I’m a bit late in the day with this – but National Afternoon Tea Week kicked off on Monday and it celebrates the best of this British tradition. Afternoon Tea was created back in the day when dinner wasn’t served until 8pm, and lunch wasn’t actually a thing, so some clever person came up with an idea to create a new mini-meal in the middle of the day.…

Afternoon Tea at Malmaison London

February 22, 2018

My first introduction to Malmaison was when I stayed over at the one in Birmingham so when Miranda from A July is a Dreamer and I decided to meet up we decided that for Afternoon Tea at Malmaison London would be perfect. After peeking on their website, it was their mini burgers that sold it to me. The hotel is a few minutes walk from Barbican station and it really…

Now we all know that there is Afternoon Tea but there is also Afternoon Tea with a touch of spice. I became aware of Brigit’s Bakery or BB Bakery as it was known then when I went to a beauty launch (in my role as beauty editor of brownbeautytalk) a few years ago. BB Bakery was a very cute outlet in Covent Garden that specialises in Afternoon Tea…

Afternoon Tea at CREAMS in Bluewater

January 5, 2018

I have a real fondness for Afternoon Tea and a few months ago Victoria from Spoken Reveries and I treated ourselves at CREAMS in Bluewater. CREAMS have branches in Bolton, Canterbury, Derby and Leeds. They promise glamour and sophistication with the 1900’s tearoom experience but with a modern twist. Well as we were smack in the middle of Bluewater shopping centre it was difficult to emulate that ambience but they…
