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.

Jessica Préalpato

Executive Pastry Chef

“Today more than ever, we are more and more aware of the need to respect the Earth, and this begins with what we choose to eat. Behind each product, there is a story, and there is a person who nurtured the product – from farmers to artisans to chefs. There is no story more beautiful than the relationship between the product, the producer, and the dish. We owe it to ourselves to respect nature, to respect producers, and to ensure that each we maintain the integrity of the taste of each product.

Nature revolves around the rhythm of the seasons, as do we as human beings. Each season brings different fruits, and our bodies nutritional needs should correspond to what nature gives us. Being in tune with nature allows us to explore taste in the right place at the right time. At their ripest, fruits are full of natural sugars and by extracting this, we do not have to add artificial sugars to our creations. Through this, we draw out the true layers and complexity of taste and pay homage to the depth of flavour. Instead of compromising the core flavours, we enhance them.

I work as a scientist – I trial and taste everything to ensure that I am extracting the most original tastes from every product. I use every part of the fruit, from the skin to the seeds, to transform it as I am sensitive to waste. My creations focus on the complexity of flavours, but with a clean and simple look. I ask that you keep an open mind to discovering a new, elevated taste experience, inspired by the great richness of Kew Gardens that has guided me throughout." - Jessica Préalpato
