Afternoon Tea in Birmingham
Afternoon Tea at The Park
Whether you are looking to celebrate a special occasion, or simply want to enjoy some decadent treats, Afternoon Tea at Park Regis Birmingham’s 1565 Restaurant & Bar is an experience you will remember.
What is Afternoon Tea?
Afternoon Tea, also referred to as High Tea is a popular food tradition steeped in British history, consisting in an afternoon treat traditionally involving tea and/or alcoholic drinks, miniature sandwiches, cakes, scones and other finger food.
Said to have been championed by a friend of Queen Victoria’s – Anne Marie Russell. She wanted to see off hunger pains in the often long break between an early lunch and a late supper, and some 150 years later, the idea is still enjoyed.
Afternoon Tea at Park Regis
Afternoon Tea at Park Regis is served in the 1565 restaurant, where guests can enjoy luxurious decor and a relaxing ambience.
Hendrick’s Afternoon Tea
All the small pastries from the Hendrick’s Afternoon Tea have been hand designed by our Executive Pastry Chef to compliment the flavours of the gin with a focus on the rose and cucumber.
Although chocolate has little to do with the Hendrick’s we just believe you can’t have afternoon tea without chocolate!
The cocktail is chilled served with fresh cucumber, elderflower syrup, jasmine tea and a good helping of Hendrick’s gin.
Hendrick’s gin is an emblematic and renown gin, using 12 Botanicals in recipe, which took 11 years to perfect. Two antique stills are used to brew it, one from 1860 one from 1918, after which Bulgarian Rose Buds and Cucumber botanicals are also added once the two spirits are combined to become the star flavours.
