Afternoon tea at @grosvenorhouselondon 😍😍😍 • If you’ve followed my page for a while you will know that this is the gorgeous venue that I host my afternoon tea events at 🏨 • I run two types of events, the first is for private individuals who want to learn more about afternoon tea. Perhaps they’re on holiday and want to experience to remember • The second is a new form of corporate hospitality where I run a guided afternoon tea session which would inform the guests about afternoon tea but still allow for you to have some conversation • If anyone wants to learn more about the events send me a message and I will send you the brochure ☕️ • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #afternoontealondon #afternoontea #afternoonteaexpert #londonafternoontea #visitlondon #visitengland #londontourist #london #thingstodoinlondon #luxuryexperiences #travel #londonist #londoner #londonfoodguide #england #british #solotravelling #solotravelgirl #londonlife #hightea #highteatime #creamtea #londonhightea #highteaparty #highteasociety

Going to London and not enjoying afternoon tea is like skipping Big Ben. The average Londoner will drink more than 17,000 cups of tea in their lifetime, so join in and see what the fuss is all about. Amp up the time-honored tradition of sipping a cup of tea at sketch, a quirky 18th-century townhouse that’s been transformed into a contemporary tea parlor. Interesting sketches line the walls, while the space-pod bathroom stalls make for Instagram-worthy content.

Simple mornings

Kopi (coffee) is the national drink of Singapore. Slightly more bitter than typical coffee, it’s also sweetened with milk and served at coffee shops throughout the city. Drink in the experience at Heap Seng Leong, one of the most famous coffee shops in Singapore.

Miami/Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Not a morning person? Jolt yourself awake with a café cubano (Cuban espresso). Especially in Miami Beach and Miami’s Little Havana, coffee windows are the best places to find the thimble-tiny paper cups of espresso, loaded with sweet sugar to kickstart your day.

New York

Which came first, the cup of coffee or the donut? It’s hard to tell, as New York boasts more of each than any other U.S. city. One thing’s for sure: New Yorker’s love their coffee. Skip national chains and try independent roasters such as Stumptown or Culture Espresso.

Coffee versus tea: What’s the verdict?

Whichever destination you choose, you’ll find the best rates to reserve your stay on the Hard Rock hotels website.
