There is nothing more sophisticated than Afternoon Tea at Palm Court in the Langham, so I figured where better for a sophisticated female much like myself to grab some amazing tea, and see what this afternoon tea malarkey was about!
Rocking up to the Langham in a dress and shoes, yes I put in a lot of effort for this; I was amazed at its outer beauty, having seen it every day from my office I didn’t expect to be so impressed! If you’re ever around Oxford Circus I’d take a look!
Stepping inside we were escorted to Palm Court, and it smelt simply divine. My work colleague was right, I’d never want to leave. Our table was so cute and very well laid out. I instantly felt at home with our waitress and the delights she had to offer us!
We obviously got the original cucumber sandwiches, which we were out of this world, and a few others including egg, chicken and salmon. We even went for second helpings as they were all too tasty.
Secondly we were brought up a selection of scones, and as a newbie to these traditional yummies, I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing they were. I’d always thought they were stale, odd looking cakes, but no, I had been wrong for many years! The cream and jam were just amazing too! I had to stop myself from eating a second as I wanted room for desert.
Wow, is all I can say about the last course, such cute little cakes, with popcorn and sparkly icing, I had never seen anything like them. They were so good our lovely waitress even made us a goodie bag to take home.
To top it all off, the pianist played Happy Birthday to my mother, whilst she got a divine chocolate and caramel brownie to delve into! Such good service!
If you have the money to splurge on something like this, then I would highly recommend giving it a go. The tea menu was one of the longest I had ever seen, and they keep it flowing! Such a lovely afternoon out!
