Chelsea Afternoon Tea

Edible Garden Afternoon Tea Inspired by Chelsea Flower Show

For those not able to get to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year, InterContinental London Westminster has created an Edible Garden-themed afternoon tea, celebrating 101 years of this quintessentially English seasonal tradition.

Partnering with Laurent-Perrier Champagne, and mirroring the elegance of Laurent-Perrier’s layered Chelsea garden, the tea includes themed pastries such as a lemon box hedge – a citrus mousse sprayed in chocolate and topped with a white chocolate ladybird – and strawberry and white chocolate champagne bubble, all served on edible ‘soil’ and presented under a greenhouse-style cloche.

There are also of course a range of savoury delicacies, from a whipped avocado shot with raw vegetables to miniature eggs Benedict, as well as a lavender-infused take on the classic scone.

Five handcrafted flower teas have been specially paired with the menu, and with unlimited Laurent-Perrier Champagne provided along with the option of edible flower-themed gin cocktails, this unique afternoon tea provides the perfect excuse to celebrate the British summer.

The Edible Garden afternoon tea is available from Mon 28 April until Mon 26 May and costs £44 per person. Every direct booking taken will be entered into a prize draw to win a pair of tickets to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
