London afternoon tea Mad Hatter style

London best afternoon tea
The sweet section

London is famous for its plush afternoon teas. There are so many on offer it can be tough to choose Рand to compete. So the Sanderson Hotel has come up with its own twist on afternoon tea Рthe Mad Hatter London Tea Party . The Sanderson is a a gorgeous boutique hotel in Soho. You can enjoy your afternoon tea outside with heaters (which I did) or inside.

Tea selection
Love the branded crockery

The menu is hidden inside a vintage book and the first tough decision is which tea to have. There are five on offer all containing different and interesting ingredients and themed to Alice In Wonderland. My favourite was the Mad Hatter which came infused with passionfruit. I also loved how the tea was served – teapots with images of kings and queened and topped with crowns – and gorgeous crockery printed with clocks and birdcages and other wonderful things.

Perfect portions of tea

Next up at the Mad Hatter London Tea Party is the savoury selection. This is a mix of mini croque monsieur, cucumber sandwiches, a sort of scotch egg and a crab eclair. These disappeared rather quickly.

Then on to the highlight – the sweet selection. Wow!! From fudge caterpillars to red velvet ladybird cakes, some delicious classic scones and coffee macaroons branded as pocket watches.

The drink me potion is passionfruit heavy and delicious and can be topped off with magic marshmallow mushrooms.

Just when you think you can eat no more the tea is capped off with a gorgeous pot of chocolate and some other things of which I am unsure but they were certainly delicious.

The final course

This Mad Hatter Tea London Tea Party was a lovely and oh so tasty way to spend an afternoon!
