Charlie & The Chocolate Factory Afternoon Tea

WOW. That is really all I need to say about this. It was the most amazing afternoon tea EVER.

But, I'll tell you a little bit anyway... 

So, I met up with the gorgeous Jemma from Iced Jems which was a treat in itself as she's as lovely as I imagined and we went to One Aldwych in Covent Garden for a lovely Christmas Treat.

We started with the 'Cocktail Charlie' and we couldn't believe our eyes when it came out.... glass teapots steaming away. 

I was surprised to try it as it was iced cold - dry ice I imagine and it was pretty strong ! Well it would be seeing as it had Dalmore whisky mixed with Grand Marnier Cherry, chocolate bitters, grapefruit juice and cherry syrup. Topped with Champagne. It was delish ! And we just couldn't stop oohing and ahhing over the amazing presentation. Spectacular. 

We then had a wonderful plate of savories (sorry I didn't get a photo) but they were delicious. 

This was on the menu:

Turkey and cranberry on white bread
Cucumber and chive crème fraîche on wholemeal bread
Cured smoked salmon and lemon mayonnaise on rye bread
Caramelised onion and goat's curd tart
Leek and Stilton quiche

THEN we were offered more savories but decided it was time for the sweet stuff and WOWEE....take a looky below:

Incredible hey !! 

Here's what it all is:

Golden egg with vanilla cheesecake and mango
Chocolate caramel milk
Eton mess
Homemade candyfloss
Blueberry brioche
Cocoa bean financier
Warm scones served with plum jam, apple and meadowsweet compote, Devonshire clotted cream.

The golden egg was the most delicious thing I have ever tasted.... 

Here is the lovely Jemma enjoying her MINCE PIE flavour candy floss !! Incredible. 

So a really lovely afternoon being absolutely blown away by the creativity of the treats and an absolute feast for the bellies. 

I would definitely recommend going here (if you can get in !! )
