Luxury London hotel InterContinental London Park Lane is celebrating Veganuary with a vegan afternoon tea packed with enticing flavours.
Afternoon tea is a quintessentially British treat, great for sharing with friends or celebrating with loved ones. As vegans, it can be tricky to find afternoon tea locations that offer us more than the odd cake or salad but the talented pastry team at the hotel have worked hard to develop a vegan afternoon tea to ensure that vegan guests have an “equally delicious experience of the time-old British tradition.”
Guests will begin the tea with a maple syrup-roasted butternut squash and spinach tart followed by an array of colourful vegetable-filled sandwiches.
The tempting sandwich fillings include Tandoori spiced mushroom, piquello pepper mousse with charcoal bread, char-kissed zucchini ribbons, shallot jam with white bread, Heritage tomatoes, smoked aubergine puree with turmeric bread and avocado hummus with beetroot bread.
No afternoon tea would be complete without a selection of scones, and the hotel is offering guests classic sultana scones with strawberry preserve.
Other sweet treats on offer include chia seed puddings and a rich chocolate banana cake. There’s also a coconut rice pudding topped with diced mangoes and a sumptuous raspberry mousse pipped onto a crisp matcha shortbread biscuit.
The afternoon tea includes a glass of Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut champagne, but guests participating in Dry January can enjoy a selection of non-alcoholic botanical cocktails if they would prefer.
The Vegan Tea is available until January 31st and costs £49 per person (including a glass of champagne). If you want to push the boat out you can opt for the £78 package where you will enjoy unlimited Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut champagne for 90 minutes.
The hotel joins the likes of high-street French restaurant Café Rouge who is also serving up a vegan afternoon tea this Veganuary.
