Afternoon Tea at The Capital Hotel
This fabulously located five-star hotel, nestled in the quiet roads just behind Harrods, will be celebrating the Games in the way they can best – through an award winning London Olympics-themed afternoon tea. The hotel was awarded the UK Tea Guild’s Award of Excellence for Top London Afternoon Tea 2012, and will be treating those weary after thoroughly exploring the numerous floors of London’s best known department store to afternoon tea served between 2.30pm and 5.30pm.

The highlights of the themed tea are dumbbells made with passionfruit ganache in a Valhrona chocolate shell; a winners’ podium made from glazed lemon sponge; Valhrona chocolate buttons on poppy seed and ginger sable biscuit sporting medals; a flame made from banana cream rippled through with a raspberry coulis and white chocolate flame decoration; and lastly a glazed basketball carrot cake, all of which are served alongside delicate sandwiches, home-made scones served with clotted cream and The Capital’s home-made jam.

The tea costs £25 per head or with a glass of Jacquart Champagne £37.50 per person.
