Game-Set-Match: It's Time for Wimbledon Afternoon Tea and PIMMS
LONDON, June 2010 – Swissôtel The Howard, London has taken advantage of the UK’s flurry of Wimbledon fever and created an afternoon tea to celebrate the upcoming tennis championships. The tea is available from June 1 2010 until the end of the tournament and offers flavoured shortbread biscuits shaped as some of Wimbledon’s most iconic images – tennis rackets, tennis balls, centre net and strawberries; all resting on top of an edible green lawn court.
The distinct afternoon tea, served in the hotel’s Mauve Lounge will treat takers of tea to a colourful miniature representation of the world renowned championships. Traditional finger sandwiches and home-baked scones with ubiquitous strawberry preserve are included on the tier of treats. Chocolate mint cups, pink champagne jelly, strawberry cream tarts and macaroons round off Swissôtel The Howard, London’s Wimbledon-inspired afternoon tea. All patisserie items are baked in-house and hand-finished with utmost precision by head chef Brian Spark and his pastry team.
The afternoon tea set is accompanied by a pot of Twinings tea, or a thirst-quenching jug of Pimms at an additional cost. The Wimbledon Afternoon Tea follows the success of the hotel’s monumental offering of TLSee – Tea-London-Sightseeing. The Wimbledon Afternoon Tea is for anyone looking to sample two of the most quintessential English favourites, tea and tennis.
The Wimbledon Afternoon Tea will be served from June 1 2010 until July 4 2010. Priced at £32 per person, a jug of Pimms can be added from £10 for 0.75ℓ.
Bookings can be made online on www.tlsee.co.uk or via a phone call at 020 7836 3555.
