InterContinental London – The O2 has partnered with Laurent-Perrier and the 2017 Great British Bake Off winner Sophie Faldo to create an early spring floral themed afternoon tea.
The spring tea will run from 4 February until 31 March in Meridian Lounge at InterContinental London – The O2, situated on the Greenwich Peninsula. Sophie and the hotel’s Executive Pastry Chef, Amit Kumar, have worked together to create a spring-inspired menu with seasonal ingredients that reflect Sophie’s personal style.
The specially created sandwiches and cakes include Persian tea spiced scones with strawberry and Laurent-Perrier Champagne preserve and Cornish clotted cream; Forman’s London smoked salmon pinwheel with lemon crème fraîche and dill; cucumber and goat’s cheese on carrot bread with balsamic molasses; rhubarb rose and thyme baba; and pineapple, coconut and lemongrass verrine. Served alongside the menu will be a choice of East India Teas, with recommendations such as Darjeeling first flush and rainforest Lumbini, and Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé and Vintage 2007.
