Musings: Afternoon Tea With Whittard

Please note my Whittard afternoon tea was complimentary. 

Afternoon tea is one of those rare treats that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. They’re not something I do enough and when I do have the opportunity I savour every moment. If it’s not the choice in tea, it’s the delicious warm scones that remind me of a summer’s day. Why can’t I have this all the time?

Time for tea.

I was invited to the Whittard tea bar in London’s Covent Garden last week to indulge in their Valentine’s themed afternoon tea. Now I may be very single but that doesn’t mean I can’t share the love. I took my best friend, Emma, as my date and it did not disappoint. 

“Featuring a specialist brew bar and 100 loose leaf teas, our flagship store at the heart of Covent Garden Market is far more than your average tea and coffee shop.”

Choosing a tea in the Whittard tea bar is a delight and difficulty. There are so many to choose so many to choose from based on your preferences. I couldn’t come to the Whittard tea bar and just order a standard English Breakfast tea so I opted for a pot of the Vanilla Sundae. It was a perfect accompaniment to afternoon tea… on a sundae.

The afternoon tea was one of the best I’ve had! The sandwiches were fresh, the scones were warm and the deserts tasted like drops of heaven. I will definitely be back for a solo date in future. For now, you can drool over the menu here. 

I finished off the afternoon tea with a pot of the Vanilla Honeybush flavoured herbal infusion which was just as sweet as it sounds. If you’re ever planning a day out in London’s Covent Garden, visiting the Whittard tea bar is an absolute must. Or if you’re in the area, pop in for a sit down and pot of tea.

    I love going for afternoon tea too and this just sounds amazing! I will definitely head to the Whittard tea bar next time I’m in Covent Garden and I’ll probably order the Vanilla Honeybush herbal infusion – it sounds lovely.

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
