Conrad St James Christmas Afternoon Tea






















If you've followed my blog for a while you will know how much I adore afternoon tea. A bunch of my blogger friends and I have made it our mission to try all the afternoon teas in London. And although I've been to the Conrad St James before (read here) I had to go back and try their Christmas menu, because why not!

This time, I decided to take my mum. As most of you know, my mum is not only my mum and my best friend, she is also a huge support for me on my blogging career and is my number one photographer. So I decided to take her to one of my favourite places as a huge thank you to all her hard work this last year.

Back in the summer I attended the Candy Shop Afternoon Tea with a friend, and to my surprise, members of staff remembered me. I feel like good customer service is what makes any experience memorable, and the staff at the Conrad are always friendly and helpful. But one thing that is above all is the food. 

This time, trying the Christmas menu was a welcomed treat. With the champagne flowing we picked our teas. I went for a peppermint tea as that is my favourite. I'm quite boring in the sense that I always try new fruity teas and they never leave me as satisfied as a good peppermint tea does. My mum however, she decided to let the staff choose her tea for her and she received a delicious blend of green tea and blueberry (which I tried and was amazing).

As I requested no pork and no cinnamon beforehand, the chefs added two different item to our meal. With an array of delicious sandwiches and quinoa salad, we moved on to the scones. Which is possibly the best part of afternoon tea. One toasted pecan and one cranberry & orange later, we were so full! 

After so much food, there hardly is ever any room for the desert, but I always make sure to try at least something. I decided to go for the white forest gateaux, which was incredible. Mum tried the plum, raspberry & almond tart which she said was also so delicious but we really couldn't eat anymore.

As we couldn't eat anymore, we decided to take the rest (and that beautiful chocolate wreath) home to eat a few hours later.

How do you feel about afternoon teas? Would this be something you would take your mum to?
