Afternoon Tea Experience 

The pause for tea is a fashionable social event and the most quintessential of English customs. We are not talking about a biscut or small cake and a mug of tea at home. 


Traditional afternoon tea consists of a selection of dainty sandwiches (including of course thinly sliced cucumber sandwiches), scones served with clotted cream and preserves, cakes and pastries.You need a strainer to keep the tea leaves from getting into your cup. Tea is then poured from silver tea pots into bone china cups. 


To experience the best of the afternoon tea tradition, join us and indulge yourself with a trip to London's finest tea rooms. We have designed an exclusive training day (or half-day) combined with the experience of British finest tradition and dining.  Meanwhile, we can also custom make dining+ training packages according to your requests and budgets.


A half-day experience can be afternoon tea or fine dining. One-day programme may include afternoon tea and fine dining, or social and business etiquette.

The Ritz London is one of the world's most prestigious hotel -  a symbol of high society and luxury, and the famous afternoon tea in the exquisite Palm Court, named as one of the most beautiful restaurant in the world. Guest can enjoy an extensive selection of 18 different types of loose tea. Pretty chinaware, silver teapots, silver milk jugs and tea strainers perfectly complement the charm of the room. And more, the Ritz tea experience is complete with immaculately presented serving staff and live music.
