The experience I had at The Ampersand Hotel Science Tea was absolutely EXPLOSIVE! It definitely proves the equation that 16 bloggers plus a themed afternoon tea in Kensington, equals a real treat.
I arrived a bit early to check out the hotel because I’ve heard it’s simply gorgeous. This was the room set up for our group.
I bonded instantly with this stunning atmosphere.
When our tea time began, the chatter and excitement in the room among the girls was another indicator the day would be fun. I made several new friends, including Jamie from Gunters Abroad. She’s lived a lot of places!
Notice the camera there in the bottom right? We have the same one! So I was eager to receive some lessons from her during our tea.
Bloggers are cool like that. She and I definitely formed a compound bond!
Aside from being in the company of such talented bloggers, another catalyst to this great afternoon was starting with a glass of champagne.
Next, we ordered our individual teas. I chose peppermint, and it was a brew of sensory sensations. Each sip had a tingly bit of minty taste, and I swear left a slight buttery feel on my lips. WINNER!
When they delivered our sandwiches and sweets, we ignited our cameras to capture the delight for you.
But, we all reached our blogger boiling points when they dropped this atom bomb on us.
Check that out, Sunny friends! Whatever enzyme they used to create this billowing fog streaming from the top tier created an electric charge in us that had the room buzzing with ooohs and ahhhhs!
I can’t wait to see how this picture turns out from Tina of Girl Meets Globe.
With our protons fully charged, we all started to enjoy the tasty selections.
The menu includes: Savoury gougeres – Glouster old spot ham, sauce gribiche; Cheese with fruit chutney; H.Forman & Son London smoked salmon, dill and cream cheese; Coronation chicken.
As well as a warm selection of plain and white chocolate scones, served with Devonshire clotted cream and homemade strawberry preserve.
And, let’s not forget that top layer which really galvanizes the Ampersand Hotel Science Tea:
Pastries – Hazelnut, walnut and chocolate cake with mango mousse volcano and chocolate dinosaur, Pistachio macaroon with cherry sauce pipette, Raspberry cake planet and Citrus cocktail.
We all left buzzing about our experience at the Ampersand Hotel Science Tea. So, I’ll say if you’re looking for a way to periodically boost yourself with liquid and inner sunshine, go to the Ampersand Hotel Science Tea. It’s offered until March 21st.
If for some reason you can’t get your beakers in order by then, they also offer a Mother’s Day Tea from March 22nd-March 30th.
Special thanks to the Ampersand Hotel for having me as a guest for the purposes of writing a review. In addition, thank you Selena from Selena the Places for coordinating such a wonderful afternoon.
