I celebrated my birthday last week. Not an important one so I didn’t go too mad, but as a rule it must always include tea & cake, so I dragged my bestest girls out for a spot of afternoon tea.
I found this amazing website called www.afternoontea.co.uk a few months ago and have been looking for an excuse ever since. As well as tempting you with photos from every tea establishment around they also have some really good offers. I opted for afternoon tea with unlimited Laurent Perrier at Intercontinental Westminster. This is the first time I’ve ever mixed booze with tea and frankly I was a little worried. I decided on a jasmine tea, rather than the old English breakfast as I have been involved in alcohol slash milk related situations in my younger days, and let’s just say it’s best avoided.
I have to say, Intercontinental was such a good choice as it’s the perfect balance of classy and informal. In my opinion there’s nothing worse than a whisperingly-formal venue where all the guests look like they’ve just got out of bed!
