Jumeirah Carlton Tower is marking the iconic events of 1969 with its latest afternoon tea. Itself a Knightsbridge icon of the sixties, having first opened its doors in 1961, Jumeirah Carlton Tower was crowned winner of the UK 'Afternoon Tea of the Year' award in June 2018. For summer 2019, the team at the luxury hotel has developed a playful celebration of the key moments of 50 years ago, including the moon landing, the release of The Beatles' Abbey Road album and the Woodstock music festival.
For the pop culture patisserie, Head Pastry Chef Thomas Coley and his talented team have combined contemporary flavours with retro finishing touches. Highlights include the rainbow Battenberg Woodstock cake complete with electric guitar and the Amalfi lemon First Man on the Moon cake with whipped lemon ganache and a silver space rocket. The Abbey Road hazelnut, milk chocolate and elderflower delice is topped with members of The Beatles striding across its zebra crossing decoration. All arriving with the usual quality afternoon tea inclusions of sandwiches, scones and bridge rolls.
To accompany their afternoon tea, guests can choose from a selection of black, green and fruit teas or herbal infusions or for a special treat, they can add a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut or Cuvée Rosé Champagne.
