We were too late for the brunch set and too early for the afternoon tea set. That was quite disappointing, but since we were starving by then after visiting the Arts Science Museum we decided to order a tea, a savoury item and a dessert. D had Miss Tea while I had Tea Party. Both had the most aromatic fragrance. And yes, I’m boring. I keep having the same thing since D first recommended it to me. What a great choice she made and another great choice this time once again with Miss Tea. From the photo you can see that Miss Tea is much lighter. I think it’s probably a white tea.
Sad to say I’m never ordering a crossaint here again. It was way below expectation. Lousy in fact. D liked her dessert though.
Will I come here again. Because I love the tea and quiche and I’ve had a lovely cream brulee tart at another branch. But I would avoid the crossaints. Go for what they prepare daily at the counter. And I wish they would have given us a better table. The place was empty but they had to seat us so close to another two ladies. It was probably not so great for the other ladies as well. The staff should be trained to know that high tea is all about being able to chat with some amount of privacy, no? Next time I will insist that we have a better table. If TWG is reading this I hope they will listen to the feedback. I supposed it’ll be too much to also ask for a reduction in their prices?
