Priced at £ 34.50 per person (approximately $57.00), including VAT, the Gent's Tea draws on the traditions of a private club, with appeal for those tea lovers–men and women alike–who prefer the savory to the sweet. It features traditional English accompaniments such as wild boar sausage rolls, miniature steak and ale pies, and warm cave-aged mature cheddar and bacon scones. Guests can have these with a glass of single malt scotch -- chosen by The Athenaeum's whisky sommelier –- and, of course tea. (The Athenaeum's traditional afternoon tea won a Tea Guild Award in 2012).
The Gentleman's Afternoon Tea is available now until June 30th. Doesn't it sound like an ideal Father's Day gift? Reservations are required and seating is available from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. daily.
