Guoman Hotels has announced it will be launching its Taste of Christmas High Tea at Guoman's historic five-star The Royal Horseguards, in London's Whitehall.
The festive-themed high tea selection, created exclusively by the hotel's talented resident pastry chef Joanne Todd offers a cosmopolitan afternoon tea menu that incorporates yuletide tastes from around the world. Visitors can enjoy their afternoon tea in front of the fireplace in the hotel's lounge which is decorated with festive garlands and a traditional Christmas tree.
Joanne's menu includes German mini stollen topped with fresh red currants and a shard of curved black and white marble-effect chocolate, a French ginger bread macaroon with vanilla cream and American cookies infused with ginger. For those looking for a taste of the Far East, the traditional English Christmas pudding is available but wrapped in a fortune cookie and banana leaf. A delicious egg custard tart, which comes with a nutmeg meringue and a spiced pear and chocolate log, is also on the menu.
To round off festivities, diners can finish with a blood orange and cranberry vodka jelly garnished with a white chocolate rum snow ball, spiced scones and mince pies served with mulled wine clotted cream.
The Taste of Christmas High Tea for two will be available from 1 until 31 December at Guoman's The Royal Horseguards.
The Royal Horseguards also offers guests a selection of festive packages from a Christmas Day Lunch to an enchanted evening of fine food, wine and entertainment.
