 Festive afternoon tea London

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in London and so I decided to join in with the festivities and have afternoon tea with one of my best friends at The Orangery in Kensington Palace. I was kindly invited to try out the festive afternoon tea here and I thought it would be the perfect thing to do a few weeks before Christmas. During the festive season I love to pack my weekends full of fun things to do just so I have something to look forward to throughout the whole of the month! 
So I slurped my way through a lovely pot of winter berry tea whilst my friend sipped on Christmas tea, which smelt just like Christmas cake! My friend and I are both veggies, so we treated to a fully vegetarian afternoon tea complete with cucumber and mint, hummus and vegetable and egg mayonnaise sandwiches. My favourite part of the tea were the scones, jam and cream, described on the website as Orange-scented and currant scones served with Cornish clotted cream and English strawberry jam - I could of quite happily had a stand full of these! Other sweet treats included an mini orange mouse, Christmas cake, cherry and almond tart, mini chocolate mouse and a slice of the British classic, battenburg. My friend and I had a wonderful afternoon catching up over tea and cake,whilst making exciting plans for the next year. The festive afternoon tea is £26 pp, and £36 pp for a glass of champagne each. 

* I was kindly  invited to review the afternoon  tea, however all tea & cake related views are my own!
