Rubens £500 Golden Tips Afternoon Tea Experience
The Rubens at the Palace is a historic luxury hotel in London overlooking the Royal Mews of Buckingham Palace — the entrance used by the Royal family. Famed for its rich heritage and showcasing exceptional dining journeys, one of those journeys include the ultimate £500 afternoon tea experience.
The Golden Tips Tea experience offers a rare tea produced in Sri Lanka’s highlands, hand-picked by tea experts. The velvety, silvery tips are then carefully turned into gold and sun-dried on a velvet cloth.
With white-glove service, this delicate tea is weighed with precision at The Rubens using golden scales with each tip placed into a silver teapot individually using golden tweezers. The tea which is showcased in a locked mahogany box lined with velvet is specially infused to produce an extraordinary liquor and a smooth, light and mellow texture with fruity notes.
Alongside Ceylon Golden Tips, indulge in freshly baked scones, pastries and finger sandwiches. The Rubens’ pastry kitchen is led by pastry chef Sarah Houghting, who previously won on Channel 4’s Bake Off: The Professionals.
This truly unique experience includes a Royal Afternoon Tea stand for two people and a bottle of Lanson Champagne (750ml) which will be sabred at your table.
