Located in the Tea Room at the luxurious Carlton Tower Jumeirah Hotel in Knightsbridge, The Chinoiserie is the perfect setting for an elegant afternoon tea in West London, and is open daily to serve afternoon tea. The restaurant takes its name from the European interpretation and imitation of far eastern artistic traditions. With the design often used for tea porcelain, Chinoiserie is a fitting choice for afternoon tea.
Afternoon tea at The Carlton Tower Jumeirah has been devised by acclaimed pastry chef Jessica Prealpato (named the World's Best Pastry Chef 2019, and Pastry Chef of the Year by Gault et Millau in 2020), who has completely redesigned the hotel's pastry offering. Préalpato's afternoon tea takes inspiration from botanics and flora of the iconic Kew Gardens in West London, and is rooted in her concept of 'Desseralité' - a combination of dessert and naturalité, that holds ultimate respect for ingredients at the core of its philosophy.
Préalpato's afternoon tea is her debut project in London, and promises to be a unique, exciting adventure with unexpected pairings and surprises along the way. The tea begin with savouries, a selection of five scones with matching preserves, then a stunning array of patisseries and cakes. True to her core philosophy, each beautiful patisserie piece is designed to enhance the natural essence of the main ingredients, with layers of flavour making the pastries much more than the sum of their parts.
As you'd expect, only the finest ingredients will do here - Jessica and team source the best produce from all over the UK to go into these impressive afternoon teas.
Afternoon Tea at The Carlton Tower Jumeirah is priced at £75 per person, or £85 per person with Champagne.
