In Full Bloom!

Celebrate Spring with a Floral Themed Afternoon Tea at The Rose Lounge

This May, The Rose Lounge at Sofitel London St James has been transformed into glorious garden just in time for Spring. The stunning space is adorned with opulent blooms and has been decorated with a green grass floor to really bring the outside in.

Inspired by the Chelsea Flower Show (22nd-26th May 2018) the team at The Rose Lounge have designed a floral themed afternoon tea. Four exquisite new cakes, inspired by the team’s favourite flowers, have been created to accompany the traditional tea. These include the Violet – Violet White Chocolate Ganache, Violet Mousseline, Blueberry Compote and the Jasmine – Pistachio Sponge, Jasmine Mousse, Pistachio Crunch, Cocoa Soil.

Alongside the cakes, guests can also sample a selection of delectable finger sandwiches and scones with cream and jam – while choosing from a selection of spicy and smoky teas, herbal infusions, light and green teas, black teas, ‘La Vie en Rose’ inspired teas and rare & seasonal varieties as an accompaniment.

For those looking to spice up their tea time, The Rose Lounge is also offering a limited-edition Chelsea Flower Show Cocktail. This whimsical drink is made from Aperol, Rose and Violette, Lemon Juice and Egg White. Garnished with a lavender bitter caramel and edible flowers and served in a delicate glass tea cup, it’s the very expression of an English country garden.

The Chelsea Flower Show Afternoon Tea at The Rose Lounge is served daily from 12pm to 6pm, priced at £32, served free flowing Champagne £52 or with a glass of Moët & Chandon Imperial £39. The Chelsea Flower Show Cocktail is priced at £16.
