Strand Palace has been welcoming guests to their hotel in the heart of London since 1909, and their iconic afternoon teas are a British tradition at its best. So, it's safe to say we are incredibly excited and proud to be partnering with them to create a delicious afternoon tea, held in their art deco-inspired Tearoom. Together, we have drawn on our British heritage to deliver a modern take on the traditional afternoon tea, with vegan and children's menus also available.
The best part? In keeping with Strand Palace and Love Cocoa's connection with Eden Reforestation Projects, the afternoon tea supports the planet by planting one tree for every afternoon tea sold - one tea, one tree!
The tea includes a wonderful array of chocolatey sweet treats that are by both inspired Love Cocoa's most-loved flavours and Strand Palace's traditional teas. Guests will be treated to a generous and sumptuous selection of sandwiches, including Cornish crab and samphire mayonnaise on a sweet brioche bun, luxurious truffled egg and chives on rye bread, honey smoked ham and Wensleydale cheese wraps and a heritage tomato tartlet with whipped buffalo mozzarella.
The crown jewels of the tea feature a mouth-watering assortment of sweet treats, with an exquisite espresso martini brownie made using our Espresso Martini Chocolate Coffee Beans, delicate pistachio macarons topped with our Salted Caramel Popcorn and a sour apple marshmallow served with a Love Cocoa white chocolate shard.
Following the classic afternoon tea custom, scones with blackberry jam and clotted cream will be served alongside a loose-leaf tea variety, with Strand Palace's unique tea flavours such as White Peony with Rosebuds and the Covent Garden Blend.
As a little gift from us, guests will also be treated to a complimentary Love Cocoa chocolate bar to take home.
As a company that is continuously inspired by its British heritage, it's a real pleasure to be partnering with Strand Palace to create such a unique, delicious afternoon tea menu. We are delighted to take a spin on tradition with the wonderful, talented team at Strand Palace.
The 'Strand Palace Afternoon Tea with Love Cocoa' is £45 for adults (£49 including a glass of Prosecco) and £27 for children up to 12 years. The tea will be served daily from 12:00 to 17:00 (last serving at 16:00) from 16th May to 12th November. Click here to book your tea now!
