Afternoon tea should be at the top of everyone’s London ‘to do list’, but why follow tradition when you can delve into a world of pure imagination with our fabulous Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea?
Inspired by Roald Dahl’s iconic story, our enchanting afternoon tea offers a feast of unexpected flavours to indulge your inner child. The journey begins with scrumptious savouries including our not-quite-as-it-seems salmon and beetroot macaron and juicy roast beef and horseradish slider, followed by fabulously fluffy floss and a box stacked high with wondrous cakes, mallows, scones and creams.
But just how chocolately is it, we hear you ask? Chocolate lovers will be in heaven with our delectable cacao bean financiers, blue as a blueberry chocolate tarts and mini bottles of chocolate swudge milkshake mixed by waterfall.
Wash it all down with pot after pot of the finest caramel or lemon sherbet tea or reach even higher heights with fizzy lifting Champagne or a Chocolatier cocktail.
Unlike Wonka’s closely-guarded chocolate factory secrets, we are thrilled to share the recipe to our Cacao bean financier, so you can indulge your sweet tooth at home. Here is everything you need to recreate these heavenly little bites in your kitchen.
Happy baking from Team One Aldwych!
