As National Afternoon Tea week gets underway from Monday 8 August to Sunday 14 August 2016, K West Hotel & Spa is trading its traditional Tea Rex tea for a perfectly prepared Pimm’s jelly cup. With Wimbledon fever having propelled Pimm’s to peak popularity, K West’s Afternoon Tea will feature an exclusive Pimm’s jelly cup accompanied by a marvelous mint sorbet, available throughout the week.
Traditional Afternoon Tea has been given a glam-rock makeover at K West Hotel & Spa in Shepherd’s Bush. Guests can swap traditional hot drinks for tea-infused cocktails, and even enjoy the treat late at night like a true rock star from 10pm until midnight. Who doesn’t love cocktails and cake at midnight?
Formerly the BBC Building Kensington House in the 60s, an endless list of Rock ‘n’ Roll royalty has stayed, played and misbehaved at K West – Bob Marley and the Wailers, Bowie, The Kinks and Roxy Music to name a few.
Priced at £24.50 and served from 2pm until 6pm in the Studio Bar & Kitchen, The Glam Rock Afternoon Tea pays tribute to the hotel’s music heritage in a playful, fun and stylish way. The tea is served on vintage record covers, with electric blue and pink teapots and teacups, adding some glam to the rock.
A Glam Rock Prosecco Afternoon Tea is available for £31.50 and the Rock ‘n’ Cocktails Midnight Tea is priced at £36.50. This cocktail tea includes a selection of five shots of cocktails, or one cocktail each.
All of the Rock Teas will include fresh blueberry ‘rolling scones’ with clotted cream & homemade jams, as well as a selection of summer themed treats such as Summer berries panna cotta, White chocolate truffle lollies, Roasted peppers & sundried tomatoes on focaccia, Savoury sliders and Chocolate cherry apples.
The Glam Rock Afternoon Teas will be served in the contemporary Studio Bar & Kitchen, which has also been designed to reflect the hotel’s rich music heritage.
