Hotel Cafe Royal London launches diptyque Afternoon Tea
September 6, 2017: Hotel Café Royal London has announced a collaboration with French perfumer diptyque to create an afternoon tea inspired by a selection of the brand’s most popular scents. The “diptyque Afternoon Tea” is available at the Oscar Wilde Bar at the hotel.
The hotel’s Executive Pastry Chef, Sarah Barber, has created four new sweet delicacies in conjunction with diptyque, each one using the flavours and ingredients to be found in four of their scents. In addition to the classic Afternoon tea served, guests will enjoy unique items, corresponding to diptyque’s Roses, Vanilla, Violette and Verveine scents.
Rose Victoria, for example, is a Victoria sponge with a raspberry and rose jam and a lychee and rose mousse, topped with silver leaf and crystallised rose, while the Tahitian Vanilla Bar is a Tahitian vanilla sponge topped with hazelnut praline feuillatine and a Valrhona ‘Opalys’ ganache.
Guests will also receive a 70g Baies candle to take away. It is diptyque’s most popular scent with a combination of Bulgarian roses and blackcurrant leaves.
Priced at £60 per person or £65 paired with a glass of Laurent-Perrier NV, the diptyque Afternoon Tea is available from 2pm until 5pm Monday to Wednesday and from noon until 5pm Thursday to Sunday.
