Time for tea

A colleague asked me for an afternoon tea recommendation this week. She was looking for something luxurious that would suit a day time hen party with two pregnant guests, so without missing a breath I said Hotel la Tour.

Christmas afternoon tea Hotel la Tour

Their pastry chef creates wonderful, sometimes whimsical confections, with a nod towards the seasons that are almost too pretty to eat. As you can see from this Christmas image, the attention to detail is lovely and makes afternoon tea the special treat that it deserves to be.

Most of the Birmingham city centre hotels provide an afternoon tea and now Marco Pierre White Steakhouse and Grill has launched their own version.

Laurent-Perrier afternoon tea

Up on the 25th floor of The Cube, the city views from Laurent- Perrier Bar are stunning. Here a selection of finger sandwiches, Marco’s daily cake selection, a chocolate brownie and the traditional warm sultana scones with clotted cream and preserves are served.

A glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne and unlimited teas are included in the £30 price. Available between 2 – 5pm, five days a week, the restaurant pledges to donate £1 from the sale of each afternoon tea to Cure Leukaemia.

*Thank you to Sarah Morrris at Ed James PR for the invitation and MPW Birmingham for your hospitality.
