Afternoon Tea at The Ritz | A Trip to London

Afternoon biscuits at The Ritz London

Biscott’s founder Lavanya Mahate has a vision for her South Jordan restaurants: a true international bakery experience. And there are no lengths she won’t go to. Last month, Lavanya took off to London for 2 weeks of very delicious research. The culminating culinary event of her trip was fulfilling a lifelong dream of attending Afternoon Tea at The Ritz in London.

Tea at the Ritz London

The esteemed restaurant coins “Afternoon Tea at The Ritz a quintessential British experience.” With over 18 different types of loose-leaf tea and finally cut sandwiches, freshly baked scones served with jam and clotted cream, and an impressive assortment of pastries, we have to agree.

The dress code for Afternoon Tea is no joke. In order to maintain the elegant nature of the hotel’s architecture, Gentlemen must wear a dinner jacket and tie. And if you were thinking of sporting your jeans, tennis shows, or Lululemon, think again.

As Afternoon Tea begins, guests are delighted by the talents of The Ritz resident pianist, Ian Gomes. The delightful ambiance is perfect as tea is served. Of course, we favor The Ritz Chai, but it was fun and educational to try many different loose-leaf teas.

On to the food…you may have noticed that Biscott’s now carries English scones. This is no coincidence. Lavanya knew her international bakery and cafe had to include them on their menu…and of course, they pair beautifully with a Biscott’s signature chai.

The scones at The Ritz for Afternoon Tea are served with Cornish Clotted Cream and Strawberry Preserves. Choose from freshly baked Raisin or plain. Or, try one of both!

The expertly-cut sandwiches are almost too beautiful to eat…almost! From the ham with mustard mayonnaise served on brioche bread to Scottish smoked salmon with lemon butter on sourdough, there is something for everyone!

So don’t be surprised if you feel a bit of a British flair coming from behind the counter at Biscotts during your next visit. We have been inspired and can’t wait to bring a little taste of Lavanya’s experience at Afternoon Tea at The Ritz London home to you!
