My View- The Sanderson Afternoon Tea

High Tea, Afternoon Tea, Cream Tea whatever you like to call it, I usually find they're all pretty much the same. 

However last week I visited The Sanderson London for the 'Mad Hatters Tea Party' which is their tribute to the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland; I can vouch it was a tea experience like the no other. 

Cocktails were given on arrival, and then we were shown into what has to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing gardens in West London.

Firstly we were given the choice of teas- being a coffee drinker I wasn't too excited by the thought of tea, yet I opted for the 'Mad Hatter' which was green tea infused with passion fruit, guava and mango, and it was surprisingly delicious. 

We were then brought out the savoury plates which consisted of cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches on lime bread, a cornish crab and herb eclair, a ham and smoked cheese croque-monsieur and a smoked salmon, quail egg and caviar scotch egg. All were as tasty as they sound, and I'm not ashamed to say I did have seconds. 

After that, we were brought out the sweet plates, which is always what I look forward to most at afternoon tea! I wasn't disappointed with there being a fab selection including 'the blue caterpillar' which was a rich chocolatey fudge finger, 'magic marshmallow mushrooms', a carrot flavoured meringue, coffee macaroons, red velvet ladybirds, banana bread and butterfly, Oreo cookie soldiers, Alices drink me potion which was a passion fruit jelly layered with a coconut panacotta and topped with lemon curd, and of course scones with jam and clotted cream. 

And to finish off an amazing tea, a passion fruit and blackberry sorbet topped with a chocolate crumb.

The Mad Hatters tea party is just what you need from afternoon tea- fun, relaxed and most importantly delicious!

If you're in or around West London I seriously recommend checking it out- just make sure to book before hand!

Much Love
