Kensington Mums had the pleasure for being invited for an afternoon tea at the prestigious and recently renovated Hotel at 100 Queens Gate Hotel in the heart of Kensington.
Relax in the beauty of Botanica
Botanica is located on the hotel’s ground floor. With its elegant atrium and lavish greeneries, Botanica is a true reflection of South Kensington’s calm and leafy Victorian heritage. This must be our favourite room in the hotel, very bright, draws inspiration from an authentic Victorian orangery, housed in a beautiful botanical glasshouse with and abundance of luxurious greenery and planting….perfect for an afternoon tea away with your other half, friends or family. The elegant atrium is flooded with natural light and curated by Whittard Teas of Chelsea – the ideal place for indulgent afternoon teas and cocktails.
We got to in the quintessentially British tradition of Afternoon Tea with a carefully selected blend of teas from Whittard of Chelsea. This is complemented by a selection of botanical-inspired pastries and savouries created by the team of in-house chefs who took us on a unique gastronomical experience. Their afternoon tea menu is heavenly, with their special Whittard tea bled named “Queen’s Gate Blend” described as “a historic blend is inspired by the type of tea enjoyed in Victorian London. Crafted according to the techniques used at the time, it’s a tea with a real taste of authenticity:hearty, full-bodied and flavoursome, with a splash more originality than your everyday cup of tea”.
“A time to unwind and enjoy your tea”.
