Prêt- à- Portea The Berkeley Hotel

My sister was in town over the weekend and we went for tea at The Berkeley Hotel- not just any ordinary tea- Prêt- à- Portea! (Clever, yes?) They are rather famous for this and for those who have never heard of it, basically,  every season, The Berkeley looks at the current season's latest catwalk looks and takes inspiration from it by incorporating them into their Afternoon Tea.

Even the china was by Paul Smith! The tea selection was also quite different from many places we go to. Our lovely waiter let me try various teas, I opted for 'Mint Chocolate Truffle' tea (yes, tea!)  followed by the  'Pear Caramel' tea. My sister had The Berkeley blend. They also presented our table with a lovely personalised name card with my name on it.
