Afternoon Tea at Jean-Georges at The Connaught is quite the refined experience that encapsulates the luxurious element of a classic British afternoon tea, combined with a contemporary twist.
Nestled within the prestigious 5-star Connaught Hotel in Mayfair, this grand location puts a playful and modern twist on the traditional afternoon tea. Guests indulging in afternoon tea at Jean-Georges at The Connaught can expect to be delighted by a few surprises along the way, too.
From the moment you enter the stylish setting of Jean-Georges at The Connaught, you can expect to be impressed by the touches of pure luxury all around you. From the ceiling windows to the floorboards, curated art from Louise Bourgeois is spread throughout the room, with stained-glass accents by Jean-Michel Othoniel, creating a stunning setting for afternoon tea. The selection of finger sandwiches is a delicate dance of flavours, from classic cucumber and smoked salmon to inventive creations that surprise and delight taste buds. The pastries are the centrepiece of the experience - from delicate macarons to airy eclairs and exotic mousses. Your server will happily guide you through the tea selection to compliment the flavours, sharing snippets of information about each blend you try, from Darjeeling and Earl Grey to Thé à l’Opéra and fresh mint..
Of course, afternoon tea is nothing if not traditional, and the selection of cakes is accompanied by warm from the oven English scones, prepared to a time-honoured recipe and served with Cornish clotted cream and homemade strawberry jam. Guests can also choose to upgrade their Connaught Afternoon Tea from the sparkling grape juice to a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut NV, Brut Rosé, Dom Perignon 2013 or Delamotte Blanc de Blanc NV.
