Square Meal Review of Aqua Shard (afternoon tea) ?

Ramping up the excitement surrounding the notion of afternoon tea is Aqua Shard, the 32nd-floor restaurant from Hong Kong’s glamorous Aqua group. Tea, cake and a spot of Champagne is a happy combination in itself, but factor in incredible panoramic views across the city and you have one of those ‘red-letter day’ London experiences. Aqua’s contemporary-style afternoon spread is strikingly visual (‘The Shard’ Opéra cake reflects the setting perfectly), and chef Anthony Garlando puts a fashionable, subtly innovative spin on some teatime classics including egg and cress sandwiches with smoked curry mayonnaise, orange blossom scones, apple, lime and Earl Grey jelly, and cassis and yoghurt pannacotta. Leaf teas are by the Rare Tea Company. Expect to pay £35.50, or £45 with a glass of Veuve Clicquot
