The luxurious boutique London hotel, The Royal Park, has redefined the traditional afternoon tea with its new degustation menu, called ‘Tiers of Joy’. Taking a modern twist on the traditional afternoon tea concept, each tier is served individually with matching Taittinger champagnes: from the classic Taittinger Brut Reserve to the contemporary Taittinger Nocturne Sec or an assortment of Tregothnan teas which complement each course.
Classic English finger sandwiches such as: egg and cress, beef and horseradish and smoked salmon and cucumber feature on the first tier. These are accompanied by a chilled glass of Taittinger’s original Brut Reserve or a refreshing cup of Tregothnan’s aromatic Earl Grey. Both beverages have been carefully selected to balance the flavors of the variety of sandwiches served.
A citrus lemon verbena infusion or a crisp glass of Taittinger’s Prestige Rose accompany the second tier which comprises of freshly baked scones, with lashings of cream and a selection of fruit jams and preserves.
To complete the ‘Tiers of Joy’ degustation menu, sweet delights such as: melt in the mouth fig and rosemary shortbread, light as air raspberry macaroons and a papaya and lime fruit cup are served alongside a soothing myrtle infusion tea or a glass of Taittinger’s Nocturne Sec, a mellow yet light champagne.
‘Tiers of Joy’ is available each day from 3.00pm-6.00pm at The Royal Park. The degustation menu including a range of specially selected Taittinger champagnes starts from £40 per person or with the range of Tregothnan tea option from £25 per person.
