DUKES famously serves delectable afternoon tea the way it has done for years. This season, a Vegan Afternoon Tea is putting a spin on DUKES quintessential tea. With tasty vegan delights, this afternoon tea is perfect for catching up with friends and being dietary and planet friendly.
DUKES London is a luxury hotel sitting in the heart of St James’s Mayfair, 5 minutes walk from Buckingham Palace. A historical site, home of King Henry 8th palace in the 16th Century, St James’s is an exclusive place often frequented by royalty, writers and musicians. What better place to enjoy a sophisticated afternoon tea?
DUKES Vegan Afternoon Tea is served in the drawing room. Overlooking the courtyard, the drawing room is a delightful place for light bites, morning coffees and evening drinks. Sat amongst plush armchairs and extravagant portraits, the drawing room is the most elegant place for a quintessential afternoon tea.
To begin afternoon tea, choose your tea from a range of fine loose leaf teas brought to you by the East India Company, partnered with DUKES to bring you the most delicious, aromatic and refreshing teas around.
Whilst sipping on the tea blend of your choice, enjoy the delectable beetroot hummus and vegan feta sandwiches sitting alongside aubergine on coriander onion bread. Cream cheese and pickled cucumber on white bread are reminiscent of the traditional afternoon tea. Cucumber sandwiches bring sophistication to every situation and fit right in with the ‘egg’ curried chickpea and watercress finger sandwiches.
The freshly baked warm scones are served with vegan clotted cream and jam. Follow this with sweet fancies of lemon drizzle cake, apricot mousse, raspberry cheesecake and more. All desserts are made by the in-house pastry chef.
From £39.50 per person this experience is a wonderful way to treat the parents or for a catch up with the girls. Upgrade your afternoon tea to include a glass of champagne or mini martinis for added festivities.
If you want to catch a few rays of winter sunshine, enjoy your afternoon tea alfresco in St James’s Park or Green park. Hampers are available for collection from DUKES. This option is definitely worth remembering for all year round and when that special occasion strikes.
