Thomas's at Burberry is now London's most fashionable place to take tea. The small but perfectly formed tea list showcases three organic, single-batch teas from small producers, all of which are extremely limited.
Jameel Lalani, Founder & CEO of Lalani & Co, said:
"The philosophy behind a short tea list is a desire to keep the list seasonal; to offer just the best and to do it well. The teas on this list are the best of their region; all unique single batches, traceable and from prime seasons. Guests will be able to experience them in beautiful surroundings and expertly prepared."
The team has been carefully trained to observe the correct leaf weight, water temperature and time for each tea. Each one is served to perfection and standards are very high.
The tea is available by the cup or as part of Burberry's afternoon tea. The afternoon tea costs £32 or £44 with champagne.
