Square Meal Review of Cafecito at Asia de Cuba (afternoon tea) ?

The St Martins Lane Hotel has stretched its style-feelers eastwards with a leftfield designer collaboration that no one could have seen coming. The unpredictable hook-up involves the Asia de Cuba restaurant and the talents of hip Shoreditch collective Luna & Curious. Between them, they’ve conjured up an afternoon tea experience to take guests on a journey to Cuba. A gorgeous tiered cake stand and bespoke bone china in jewel-bright colours inspired by Cuban culture set the scene, while Asia de Cuba’s signature flavours bring the Caribbean island even closer. Sweet and savoury tastes include a ‘Cubano’ sandwich with BBQ pulled pork, empanadas with hot sauce, mini doughnuts and Key Lime pie. JING tea blends have been chosen with these big bold flavours in mind, although cocktails also tempt – don’t miss the Old Cuban martini with rum, grapes and elderflower.

We get two types of tea that would compliment each set, as well as an aperitif and a 'finishing' shot...
