So when I got an email from Sanderson London asking if I wanted to pop down to try the mad hatters afternoon tea I jumped at the chance! I've only had afternoon tea twice before and was eager to try thisAlice in wonderland themed one! I bought my mum along as she has a week off work and it was such a nice treat for us both to catch up and have some girl time.
We started off with some tea smelling! There were five specialised teas that were created for this afternoon tea and I went with the 'white rabbit' which has hints of the silver needle tea. It was no joke the best tea I've ever tasted. I'm a the girl and I've sampled pretty much every silver needle teas London has to offer and this one had no competition. My mum opted for the 'Alice', a blend of china black tea with mixed berries which smelled incredible! These teas are only available at the Sanderson so definitely head down and try for your self!
Our first course was some savoury goodness - in the form of mini finger sandwiches, scotch egg and a crab and herb eclair. My favourite from that is the cucumber sandwiches - they actually have cucumber in and was a unique take on the traditional ones you normally have. The flavours worked so well together with the soft cheese and you would be surprised how filling the savoury plate is! Next course was the tower of sweet treats. Filled with macaroons, red velvet cakes, scones, mushroom marshmallows and chocolate treats! We found ourselves tucking in straight away and was so impressed with how delicious everything tasted! There was even Alice's 'drink me' bottles filled with coconut milk, passionfruit and mango purée! Think those were mine and Mum's favourite dessert! We could drink those all day!
This afternoon tea was really magical, I have never come across anything like this before and highly recommend this especially if you want to treat your mum or a loved one to something special! My mum was so happy with the afternoon tea that I think I'm going to have to take her back and bring my little sister along! Thank you so much Sanderson for treating us to an afternoon full of incredible treats! If you guys would like to book a table then click here!
