Editor of the new title Charlotte Bendkowski announced the launch of Haute SocieTea Magazine, a ground-breaking media-rich website and quarterly print and digital magazine created to provide insights into the ultimate luxury of Afternoon Tea. Featuring exceptional editorial and compelling video content, the new media platform includes recommendations on the top places to tickle your tastebuds with a spot of Afternoon Tea.

There is no denying that the quintessentially British ritual, centred around tea-drinking, is to experience a staple part of British culture at its best. Harking back to a sense of old-fashioned finery, Afternoon Tea is the perfect place to celebrate landmark events or simply catch up with friends.
Haute SocieTea shares insights, reviews, and recommendations on the iconic British tradition of Afternoon Tea. The Haute SocieTea website launches September 2021, with the print magazine following next year, set to include mouth-watering articles on the most delectable Afternoon Teas.

To celebrate Afternoon Tea Week, Bendkowski joined her friends at one of the U.K.’s most esteemed hotels and afternoon tea experiences at The Savoy. Bendkowski shared: ‘Tea was served in their one-of-a-kind foyer which feels as if you were inside a show globe. It’s enchanted. The wonderful team at the Savoy never allow your teacup to reach half empty. It’s imaginative without losing the tradition which we all know and love’. She further shares: ‘Afternoon Tea is seeing a renaissance especially at the most elegant hotels around the world. Unlike any other activity, it is a defining ritual of British culture and nothing short of the pinnacle of elegance and civilisation.’.
