If you find yourself in London on the 17th of July here is something that might be of interest. The very British ritual of having “tea” is something foreigners enjoy and those of us living here take for granted.
I thought I would re-blog and share with you the information I came across in a recent blog called Edible Experiences.
You be the judge.
Join historian and Fox & Squirrel founder Penelope Sacorafou for an afternoon of high tea – the highest of teas this country has to offer- as she interviews head archivist of Fortnum & Masons Dr Andrea Tanner on all things history, retail and most certainly tea.
With only 12 spots available and set in a private space in Fortnum & Masons this is as exclusive as it is a once in a life time opportunity to experience, taste and learn all about Fortnum’s past and present glory from the person behind Tea at Fortnum & Mason.
The event starts at 5.30 pm and the interview is set during a classic afternoon tea (think towers of sandwiches, scones, cream and cakes) but not before tasting a myriad of tea blends.
Included below is the Menu for the afternoon with Dr Tanner & Fox & Squirrel:
Fortnum Afternoon Tea for Fox & Squirrel
Cucumber, Cream Cheese
Chicken & Sweetcorn
Rare Roast Beef, Café de Paris Butter Fortnum’s Smoked Salmon, Horseradish Cream Rare Breed Hen Egg, Mustard Cress
