My cup of tea

Ladies who lunch are increasingly becoming ladies who have tea in the afternoon (although I suspect this has been happening for years and that tea is just a convenient colour to disguise any manner of er, performance enhancing, beverages). Finally, someone with a little more flair and decidedly good taste has managed to combine this lovely leisurely activity (post-shopping of course) with some of the items you may have bought - earlier that day!

The Berkeley in London are now offering Pret-a-Portea creations based on the seasonal designs of some of our favourite drool-worthy deities. You can snack on Laurent Perrier and a Christian Louboutin green glitter shoe biscuit (complete with red sole), or enjoy Africa Amber tea accompanied by a bit of dark lace chocolate Prada inspired heaven. I can't wait to try this when I am next in the UK - finally something to look forward to besides the weather!




Which designer creation would you most like to sink your teeth into?

mmmm...Tea and chocolate lace anything sounds good to me. I am not a coffee drinker, so tea is my beverage of choice.

When I was in London this summer, I had a lovely tea at The Ritz. It was very "posh".

Know what you mean Clara, though if chocolate is an option, I'm happy to hold the tea!

Had a cup of rose tea at Liberty in London last month - tea really did smell and taste a little like roses, helped that it was served in beautiful bone china cups...and the break from walking in the icy wind was very welcome!
