The Carlton Tower Jumeirah Experience

I was graciously welcomed to the beautiful Carlton Tower Jumeirah, a five-star hotel in Knightsbridge. This was a chance to try their Afternoon Tea menu. After winning an Instagram competition sponsored by the Carlton Tower Jumeirah and Afternoon Tea pages. The elegant tea set that paid tribute to nature. Here I will show how it all went.

I was welcomed and shown to a lovely room near the window and door. We were introduced and told about the entire Afternoon Tea as we sat. We then selected our teas. This was followed by five different courses of food. While enjoying tea and food, we noticed an Indian wedding taking place at the hotel at the same time. I felt the food was good, but the amount of sugary treats we had filled us up completely. However, at the end, I did prefer the croissant and desserts platter. Although, it became too much in the end, and we brought the remainder home.

The interiors were exquisite, as you approach, you find the centre filled with flower pots by Moyses Stevens all around the table. On top of that, the chandelier over the flowers was gorgeous. When you enter the afternoon tea room on the right, you will notice a Royal British-style room for your afternoon tea experience.

The sandwiches were the first thing offered by the food, with three options. The Savoury Truffle Croissant, which is packed with duck egg and black truffle, being one of them. In addition to salmon and greens. The croissant was my favourite because it was the most traditional of the bunch.


After that, they offered a palette cleanser to prepare for the rest of the meals.

Mucicao Sorbet

This was both refreshing and sweet for the teeth. Mucicao Sorbet with Fermented Cocoa Beans. It took a while to finish, but it wasn't one of my favourites.

The Carlton Tower Jumeirah Chaï, Chandernagor, India & Wedding Imperial Tea

These were the tea selections we made. I preferred the Chai Chandernagor since it had the stated masala flavour. The wedding imperial was made with Malty Assam, chocolate, and caramel. This was what my Mrs ordered.

Scones Experience

Scones were a characteristic British ritual. A colourful and tasty combination. There was a lot to choose from, and I really liked the coffee-flavoured at the end and the classic custard cream.

  • Plain Scones with Clotted Cream
  • Lemon Verbena Scones with Almond Cream
  • Malt Scones with Pastry Cream
  • Iranian Saffron Scones with Rhubarb Jam

I truly enjoyed my experience at the hotel, and atmosphere was quite and gentle with soothing background. One side was full, whereas the seating we had it was only one other couple who were there. The pricing was £75 per person, although you would easily be filled up by it.
