During our recent stay at the Chesterfield Palm Beach, we were delighted to enjoy an afternoon tea with a variety of English teas and treats.
You can choose to enjoy your tea in the Leopard Room, outside in the courtyard, or as we chose, in the nineteenth century styled library complete with wood panelling and Chesterfield sofas.
Our tea began with a choice of assorted loose leaf teas. We chose blackberry and oolong teas and they arrived quickly in traditional fine china.
Next, we enjoyed a sampling of dainty English sandwiches – cucumber, salmon, chicken salad, egg salad, and ham and cheese. A few minutes later arrived the highlight of the meal – hand-baked English scones. They were wonderful pillows of delight especially accompanied by strawberry jam and clotted cream.
Finally, an assortment of bite-sized desserts were presented. Brownies, fruit tarts, and a fantastic carrot cake were a great way to end the meal.
Traditional English tea is available at the Chesterfield Palm Beach hotel daily from 12pm to 4pm and reservations are recommended. While you are there, be sure to explore the rest of the hotel – a real journey back in time.
