LONDON – DAY 11 (FORTNUM & MASON, LONDON – AFTERNOON TEA)

The must do in London – Afternoon Tea! This is one of my must do thing in here is to have a traditional English Afternoon Tea. Originally we wanted to go to Ritz, but it was fully booked … so we went to Fortnum & Mason Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon. Fortnum & Mason itself its a luxury department store in central London. When you entered, you will noticed the grand gourmet store filled with candies, chocolates and tea.

Our friend made reservation, there was no need to wait. Simple menu, you had few choices and I opted for the Fortnum’s Afternoon Tea with Jasmine Tea, while my friend opted for the Savory Afternoon Tea.

Here is a more detail look for the 2 towers. Left 3 were savory, right 3 were traditional. I like my traditional tea better, because I love traditional scone with clotted cream and jam. Everything on the tower were beautifully presents and tasty. The scone on the savory tower served with couple savory cream, I forgot what they were. The finger sandwiches on both towers were the same.

This runs about £42-£46 per person. This is solely for the experience, I am pretty there are other Afternoon Tea places in London. Regardless where you chose to go, I think Afternoon Tea is a must do in London.
