Here at Afternoon Tea Towers the team are always on the look out for Afternoon Tea related news, reviews, seasonal menus, special events and competitions.
The AfternoonTea.co.uk team recently went along to GŎNG - Shangri-La Hotel, at The Shard to sample their delicious Afternoon Tea menu, whilst enjoying the sensational views of London's skyline.
GŎNG at Shangri-La Hotel is located on the 52nd floor of the iconic Shard building, and for such contemporary and stylish surroundings, the Afternoon Tea itself is quintessentially British, with a strong focus on the quality of food, and service.
The new English Afternoon Tea menu at GŎNG consists of an array of classic finger sandwiches, with enough fillings to satisfy everyone's taste buds - the organic egg mayonnaise, truffle and mustard cress on soft roll was a personal favourite!
After finishing the sandwiches, we were excited to reach the top plate, filled with sweet treats including 'In A Glass' - a cinnamon infused cream with pear compote, topped of with a mini vanilla macaroon, and 'Caraibe' - a soft chocolate cream with chocolate sable Breton and banana compote.
As you can see, the 'Yuzu' looked amazing, it's a combination of baked and cold mousse cheesecake with yuzu juice soaked sponge and yuzu orange marmalade, this would definitely be a cheese cake lover's dream!
We also received a selection of perfectly dainty scones, we all loved the Earl Grey flavour, as well as the plain, served with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry jam.
You also get a choice of tea from their extensive list of teas, we opted for the traditional Earl Grey, and the signature tea. To make the occasion extra special, you can even add a glass of champagne, or two!
If you are looking for a truly spectacular Afternoon Tea, with breath-taking views across London, this is the place to go!
