Celebrate the Centenary of the Chelsea Flower Show with The Park Lane Hotel's Flowering Afternoon Tea


In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Chelsea Flower Show, we have created a very special Flowering Afternoon Tea.

Available for a limited time from Tuesday 14th May to Sunday 9th June 2013, our Flowering Afternoon Tea will include a delightful array of horticulturally-inspired teatime treats.

The hotel’s award-winning Pastry Chef, Sarah Hartnett, has created an edible garden gnome as a charming centrepiece for the tea in recognition of the Royal Horticultural Society’s decision to allow the beloved bearded figurines at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show following a long-term ban.  

To accompany the Flowering Afternoon Tea, our Tea Sommelier has put together a selection of traditional British, Oriental, herbal and fruit-infused teas, including Whole Rose Bud and Whole Camomile Flower teas, Flowering Osmanthus and Flowering Jasmine Peach.

See below what delicious treats are included.
