Afternoon tea anyone?

Last week I was very kindly invited for a spot of afternoon (or evening!) tea at the Millennium Knightsbridge Hotel. I was over the moon to be invited as afternoon tea is my favourite thing in the world - doesn't everything taste so much nice in miniatures?! Before we got down to business we were treated a few glasses of pink champange which went down very nicely after a long day at work. Then it was on to a tour of the fabulous hotel! Aisling, Lily, Sarah and I were gobsmacked at the beautiful view over London. You could see for miles! It was certainly a talking point.

We were led to the Tangerine Cafe Bar where we were given the history behind the notion of afternoon tea and the proper etiquette.  It was very hard to not scoff all the treats in one go given our rumbling tummies! Millennium have tried to put a twist on the event with three types of mini scones available. We were given a selection of chocolate, savoury or raisin scones. The first one was my favourite - I may have had three... I was really impressed with the chocolate cup especially as everything was edible! At £17.50 for two people, it really is quite the bargain as it's amazing value for money.
