Prêt-à-Portea at The Berkeley


I have really great friends. They took me to the designer tea at The Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge as part of my Hen/Bachlorette weekend. I love the tea here because each piece is creative and really cute and they also keep bringing out more until you tell them to stop!
The cakes are in the colors of the fashion season and inspired by the world’s finest designers!


The menu, the dresses that inspired the treats and the cute little name tag on our table.

Everything is served on Paul Smith china. I love the stripes.

They had about 10 or more different kinds of tea. I’m partial to flavored black tea so I chose Pear and Carmel. My friends chose a white Peony, African Amber and Green Tea.

A selection of tea sandwiches

A selection of savory options: skewers and taster spoons. The crab cone on the left was excellent and the shot glass is filled with a watermelon and basil soup. It was different!

Christopher Kane pale pink almond macaron filled with white chocolate and elderflower ganache, topped with a pink checkerboard.
Belted Jason Wu poppy seed cocktail dress biscuit embellished with ruffled purple icing.
Season’s must have Chanel clog biscuit adored with chocolate brown studs and white leather glaze.

Jean Paul Gaultier fluorescent cheese cake on almond and oat base accessorized with a bright yellow sugar twirl.
Anya Hindarch light apricot summer ‘Halen’ bag, wrapped in almond marzipan with playful bow.
Erdem dark silky chocolate cake filled with passion fruit and delicate lace.

Paul Smith orange, papaya and pink lavender bavarois topped with chocolate bowler hat.
Yves Saint Lauret soft romantic white mousse and raspberry custard finished with a crunchy meringue scattered with mini strawberries.
Sonia Rykiel nautical vanilla and raspberry jam layered mousse topped with humorous yellow hat.

I had such a great time and this tea is so fun. You can keep going back because the cakes change with the fashion season! You can see from all these lonely hats how much I ate.
They also give you a small take away box!

    I love the Berkeley hotel – I love Marcus Wareing's restaurant there and the cocktails in the blue bar are amazing. Have seen this tea and ogled the crockery. Nice location for a hen party!
