Time for tea my dear Watson

Headline Date 05-04-2017

Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Hotel has announced that the nation’s favourite sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, is the inspiration behind the third initiative in its award-winning “English Classics Reinvented” afternoon tea campaign.

Available from 18th April, the Sherlock Holmes Afternoon Tea will showcase a mystifying selection of culinary rarities, inspired by the puzzling narrative and Sherlock’s intriguing attributes. The 221 B Macaroon is infused with 25-year-old Scotch, whilst the Moriarty’s Bomb is a tantalisingly alluring coffee and Bailey’s Cheesecake.

The Sherlock Holmes Smoky Cigar arrives in the form of a smoked caramel mousse, and Watson’s Moustache, is the ultimate boozy addition in the form of a Stout Cupcake. The selection of savoury sandwiches is inspired by The Sign of The Four, the second of the Sherlock Holmes novels. The Five Orange Pips features an intriguing combination of smoked salmon with orange flavoured horseradish, while the more traditional Hound of Baskerville, including a filling of roast beef and English mustard – the explosion of flavours leave no stone unturned.

The Sherlock Holmes Afternoon Tea will be available to book from 18 April onwards and costs £35 per person.
