We recently had cause to celebrate and as part of the celebrations, booked afternoon tea for 5 at The Conrad, Dublin. We had the champagne afternoon tea, we were celebrating after all, along with the usual selection of teas and coffees on offer. The regular afternoon tea is priced at €30 per person and the champagne one at €40 per person.
Afternoon tea is such a nice way to spend a few hours, whether celebrating or not, just catching up with friends and really for all the lovely food you get it’s quite good value for money wherever you go. Whats not to like about a 3 tiered stand piled high with food, mostly decadent and sweet cakes and scones too!
The food arrived, on the aforementioned 3 tiered stand, its a modern take on a traditional cake stand. We started with the middle level, where everything looked delectable from the ham and mustard on brioche, traditional cucumber, smoked salmon, and egg mayonnaise (my favourite of the sandwiches). The scones were fruit and plain and dishes loaded with clotted creams and jams also arrived to the table.
On the top level of the stand, there was a mix of sweet treats including the most delicious white chocolate and pistachio balls, raspberry macarons, dainty little lemon cakes and chocolate coconut treats…
I loved the pots the teas were served in…on top of a little stand with a tealight, so pretty.
Absolutely everything we ate was simply gorgeous and I will definitely be back to The Conrad for Afternoon Tea!
As if we hadn’t had enough in our afternoon tea, the hotel kindly also brought out this additional plate with chocolate covered strawberries and other lovely little sweet things to congratulate the happy couple!
