Millennium Hotel Afternoon Tea

I have so much love for Afternoon Tea. I'm thinking about bringing it into my diet full time, alongside brunch, so that I'm on 4-5 meals a day.

I was recently invited to an Afternoon Tea with Millennium Hotels, at their Knightsbridge hotel, which is gorgeous hotel and at a brilliant location - a stone throw away from Harvey Nichols and Harrods. The location is perfect if you're visiting London for a few days as you're on the doorstep of some of the best stores in the world, so you can shop till you drop, then head to your hotel and relax. It's also a beautiful hotel, both inside an out.

But on to the Afternoon Tea itself. We were sat at the Tangerine Cafe bar and the seating was perfect. It had a real laid back and chilled vibe, so great for sitting down and enjoying a much needed catch up with my favourite blogger friends. There was also a really adorable outdoor patio, with fairy lights. Perfect for those summer evenings, for just sitting and having a drink.

We were treated to an etiquette talk as well, which focused on etiquette during Afternoon Teas, and we also got a brief history of it and how it became so popular. I learnt so much and will share it all in good time. But in the meantime, I can tell you that you DO NOT cut your scone with a knife, but break it with your hands, then add butter/cream/jam with your knife.

The food was great too. So delicious. We started off with sandwiches, then moved onto the scones. I have a massive soft spot for scones (I love them so much I actually made them myself once - I literally only make food that I know I can't live without because I'm such a disaster in the kitchen). But these ones were great and definitely didn't disappoint. Baked to perfection and had me reaching for more.

And dessert included this little beaut: Yup, that's right a teacup made from chocolate, with chocolate inside. How's that for world's most perfect invention?

So if you're in town, or fancy a mini trip, I definitely recommend the Millennium Hotel in Knightsbridge.
