Lushness of the Week: Afternoon Tea!

What with it being Mothering Sunday this weekend, I felt it was the perfect time to talk about a recent afternoon tea experience I verily enjoyed. Afternoon tea is a lush treat to share with your Mum.

I’ve enjoyed afternoon tea on numerous occasions but more recently I enjoyed the lush experience at The Courthouse Hotel, London. I booked the champagne afternoon tea experience via the website which included a Thames river cruise as a treat to celebrate my sister’s birthday. This was her first afternoon tea experience and what an experience it was for her. Whilst we were sipping on the champagne and enjoying the cakes, sandwiches, and not forgetting the tea, I mentioned to one of the waiters that it was her birthday and by my surprise a few minutes later they surprised her with a cake with a candle. The experience got even better and even more memorable with the next gesture…during the course of the experience we asked for an extra glass of champagne, however when we asked for the bill, again by my surprise they gave the champagne to us on the house. #Lushness!


For anyone looking for an afternoon tea treat, I would highly recommend The Courthouse hotel. What makes this venue great is that although it is set in the heart of London’s bustling shopping and theatre district it offers a secluded and comfortable setting. The staff are also very attentive which made the experience even more enjoyable.
