Squaremeal Review of The Rose Lounge at Sofitel London St James Hotel (afternoon tea) ?

Afternoon tea, that great tradition so beloved of ‘les rosbifs’, is given a French twist at the Sofitel’s Rose Lounge. ‘La tea en rose’, as it’s known, could not be more in keeping with the setting – and ultra-feminine, pink and cream drawing room set off by displays of fragrant roses and the sound of live harp music. Served on a covetable and lovely pink-china tea service (Wedgwood, naturally), the spread includes four delicate little finger sandwiches (the fillings change with the seasons), Parisienne pastries and homemade scones with rose-scented raspberry jam. The whole experience costs £28 – or £32 with a typically girly cocktail of Champagne with rose and lychee. The Rose Lounge is one of few venues to serve blends by London’s wonderful Postcard Teas, so savour every sip.

    The reception area at the So SPA was inviting and included big sofas that I could have curled up on and gone to sleep on. On arrival we had to fill in a form on health issues etc plus what we wanted out of our treatments – I...

    Connie Consumes :: A Tale of Three Teas | Connie Consumes

    A few days later it was time for tea again; I joined Kelly, Shikha and a whole room of bloggers in the very appropriate Rose Lounge for the launch of Sofitel St James’ floral inspired afternoon tea. We were warmly welcomed by the staff, their service throughout the afternoon was impeccable, before the lesson in tea from France’s oldest and largest teahouse, Dammann Freres.

    From their large selection, I chose the Passion de Fleurs, a delicate white tea with hints of rose, apricot and passion fruit- an ideal pairing for the floral infused pastries. The food itself started a little haphazardly with finger sandwiches...
