The Lady Lyttelton Afternoon Tea at The Stafford London by Kempinski


Lady Lyttelton Afternoon Tea

London June 2013The Stafford London by Kempinski is delighted to announce the launch of its new Afternoon Tea.

Executive Chef Brendan Fyldes has created The Stafford’s new signature Afternoon Tea inspired by traditional and quintessentially British baking with a touch of Kempinski patisserie flair. The Stafford is the perfect setting to enjoy the art of Afternoon Tea at the heart of where this English ritual first began.

The ‘Lady Lyttelton Afternoon Tea’ is in honour of Lady Sarah Lyttelton, the historic owner of the Main House at The Stafford, and Lady in Waiting to Queen Victoria. Our Lady Lyttelton Afternoon Tea is served in The Lyttelton lounge and restaurant being the former dining room and drawing room of the Lyttelton family and their distinguished guests.

This tea features a signature Lady Lyttelton cake: the ‘Tipsy’ cake aptly named with layers of jams, cream and a tipple of Madeira reminiscent of the cakes enjoyed by ladies during the Victorian era. Accompanying this is the daintiest edible dark chocolate teacup filled with white chocolate and ginger tea mousse, a selection of petite sandwiches including coronation chicken on brioche and crayfish, tarragon on soda bread and of course warm, fluffy scones, the traditional sweet treat made fashionable by Queen Victoria. Lastly, crowning the tea and certainly the Queen of puddings on this new menu, ‘Bosphorale’, the Kempinski Dessert of 2013.

The Lady Lyttelton Afternoon Tea is priced at £28.50 per person or with a glass of Champagne £38.50 per person and is served from 3pm – 6pm daily. Booking is essential.
