Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is taken seriously at Corinthia London. Less convenient refreshment and more a fragrant ceremony to grace, charm and tradition. A slowly unfolding pleasure that must never be hurried. A delightful reminder that time is a luxury to be savoured. And ours is taken in a light-drenched lounge, illuminated by the warming glow of 1,001 Baccarat crystals.

"It was in 1840 that Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, noticed she felt a ‘sinking feeling’ around mid-afternoon. Once served with a pot of Darjeeling tea, some bread, butter and biscuits, she felt decidedly better. The afternoon tea was born."

"It's the perfect place to escape the busy city, sipping on one of their many teas and listening to their resident pianist play"
