    Tocelebrate chocolate week, a friend and I decided to try out a special Thorntons afternoon tea being served at the Park Lane Hotel!

    When we arrived we were greeted with a glass of Mumm champagne and asked for our choice of tea, i opted for my favourite Assam whilst my friend selected the daintly named tea called 'lady grey'.  

    Next up came a beautifully presented plate complete with lots of miniature rolls and sandwiches including an interesting looking mushroom and rosemary creme brulee served inside an actual egg shell! My favourite was the salt and pepper corn fed chicken ciabbatta but i was most intrigued by the smoked salmon and chocolate toast.

    Next up came the most exciting part of the tea, the cakes! They were all exquisitely made and tasted delicious! My stand out favourite was the raspberry cheesecake followed closely by the passionfruit and white chocolate mousse! i love afternoon tea and the main event for me is always the scones which i love topped with clotted cream and strawberry/raspberry jam. sadly the scones in this tea were miniature and the preserves weren't really my cup of tea (mind the pun) but i still enjoyed them all the same!
