A Unique Afternoon Tea at the Grand Imperial London

During my visit to London, I made sure I indulged in Afternoon Tea every day I was in town.  I love Afternoon Tea and only partake in it when I’m in the UK.  Otherwise, I could never justify eating such sweet and fattening foods on a regular basis.  I don’t know how the British are so thin considering they have so many wonderful treats like scones with clotted cream and jam. By the time I left London, I’m sure if you tested my blood the two things running through it would be espresso and clotted cream.

Before I went to London I decided that I wanted to try a unique Afternoon Tea.  After doing an internet search I found a Chinese option at the Grand Imperial London in the Grosvenor Hotel on Buckingham Palace Road.  Besides the unique menu, they also had a large variety of teas to choose from.

The atmosphere, food and service were all superb at the Grand Imperial London.  If you are in London and in the mood for something a little different, give this place a try.
