“CECI N’EST PAS UN THÈ”
AN ENCHANTING EPICUREAN TEA TASTING UNIQUE EXPERIENCE AT THE RITZ LONDON
If Magritte changed the way we look at a work of art with his famous painting “The Treachery of Images” (1928-9) or “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” (“This is not a pipe”) the Epicurean Tea Tasting will change your understanding of an afternoon tea forever.
The Epicurean Tea Tasting experience is not a tea, it is a real work of art.
Since 1906 the Ritz’s Afternoon Tea has offered a popular tradition to a diverse public within the elegance of it’s institution, but this tradition has now been elevated. The Ritz is introducing a new Epicurean Tea Tasting experience, a journey that will stimulate all your senses. Chelsea Monthly was amongst the four guests invited to the launch.
During this three-hour journey you will be accompanied by Certified Tea Master Giando, who will guide you through the fascinating history of six exclusive teas that he has curated. You will learn about the processes, the journey and the properties of those fine teas. For each tea executive Chef, John Williams, MBE and his team have especially created fine sandwiches, warm savoury, baked scones and French patisserie that complement each tea perfectly.
The Epicurean Tea Tasting is £95 available daily at 3pm for four guests; with a 24 hour reservation required.
