"Sex and the City Par-Tea” The Hyatt Regency, The Churchill London

The Hyatt Regency, The Churchill is located in the Marylebone area of London. It is very close to the private members club 'Home House', and is perfectly located for fellow shopaholics (or should I say terrible for the bank fund...) being a mere five minutes from the department store Selfridges (defiantly worth a look, and don't forget to check out 'The Wonder Room' on the ground floor) and easy walking distance from both Oxford Street and Bond Street.

This Afternoon Tea embraces Sex and The City breaking away completely from the traditional icons of afternoon Tea such as sandwiches and scones and instead favouring astrami on rye, New York bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese (Simply Dreamy- Promise!), mini burgers (named after Jack Berger one of Carrie's boyfriends) and mini New York hot dogs with mustard.

Now on to the top row, which was our favourite part: In honour of Carrie, a strawberry-flavoured chocolate pink stiletto (which tasted as good as it looked!); for Charlotte, a pink strawberry cupcake; for Samantha an appletini jelly in a mini martini glass and for Miranda a glazed doughnut! This Afternoon Tea also included a Flirtini cocktail (champagne, vodka and pineapple juice) which happens to be a hit with not only the Sex and City Girls but with us too.

A special note must be made that although the tea was missing many of the iconic symbols we have been accustomed with, tea was still an integral part of this! The Tea selection included special teas that reflected the personality of each of the girls, however we decided that we would go with a jasmine flowering tea. This tea is especially novel because inside the tea pot contains a beautiful flower which opens up with the increased heat. I really enjoyed this afternoon tea, although highly indulgent the quality of food and attention to detail paid in terms of maintaining the theme really paid of.

"Sex and the City Par-Tea” is served Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 3:00pm and 6:00pm. This special afternoon tea is available at £36 per person and £45 per person including a Flirtini cocktail and is available for parties of up to 6 people

  1. I had this tea last year and as you say its not completley traditional, but I loved it. Those mini burgers were yummy (we were given seconds!) and the cakes were all so pretty!
