Did you know that there is a pop up Snow White Afternoon Tea experience in London and it is lovely. I was thrilled to be invited by Hilton Waldorf to experience their latest Afternoon Tea offering and it was delicious. The Waldorf is situated just around the corner from Covent Garden.
They have a small area at the front of the hotel which has been decorated to feel like a Magical Enchanted forest, with flowers and Apples and other little touches relating to Snow White.The Afternoon Tea itself is served in three stages. Firstly, the sandwiches that you are offered are Oak smoked salmon and chive infused cream cheese blini, Baked Ham with a hint of Dijon mustard onion slice, Free range egg and watercress basil loaf, Tuna Mayonaise with slivers of cucumber carrot bread. The sandwiches were delicious and it was lovely to have such variety of options.
Next, I was brought the scones and cakes and oh my goodness, they were delightful! You are given two scones, plain and Spiced orange and they are served with Jam and clotted cream. They are also served warm and literally melted in my mouth. The cakes looked absolutely beautiful, almost too nice to eat! The cakes were White chocolate and Congac infused Ganache lollipops, Salted Caramel cremeux with tatin apples, Lemon Meringue pie and a Chocolate and cherry roll. The cakes looked both stunning and tasted unbelievably good.
Halfway through the Afternoon Tea experience, they create a little magic with the Poison Apple inspired table decoration which is lovely and adds that little extra.
Finally they bring out a last surprise which is a gorgeous Apple chocolate dessert. Just bare in mind that this is a filling Afternoon tea with so many lovely flavours and options so make sure you are hungry if you book.
