Afternoon Tea At London's Famous Dorchester Hotel.

Busy day in London Town. Enjoyed Afternoon Tea with Champagne at London’s famed Dorchester Hotel today. The list of celebrities who have frequented this hotel in long. Afternoon Tea is served in The Promenade, a lobby on the ground floor, where potted palms and towering fountains of flowering plants surround plush couches with pillows as soft as marshmallows. Marble columns the colour of apricot parfait rise from the floor, crowned by gilded Corinthian capitals.

The Dorchester has been awarded 'The Tea Guild special Award of Excellence 2013' in recognition of its outstanding quality and consistently high standards in Afternoon Tea service and has previously received this award a further four times in 2000, 2002, 2007 and 2012. The Dorchester is the only London hotel to achieve this distinction.

Kathryn was a uber happy, although, she states she has a special fondness for Afternoon Tea at Chicago’s equally famous Drake Hotel. The Dorchester High Tea service stole my tea heart today. Impeccable service, highly recommended! ;)
