Afternoon Tea in The Crystal Moon Lounge at Corinthia Hotel offers one of life’s great luxuries. Illuminated by a spectacular Baccarat Chandelier and accompanied by uplifting melodies from a Steinway Piano, the Crystal Moon Lounge offers an idyllic atmosphere for a newly launched sumptuous Afternoon Tea.

Designed to showcase individual elements of a tea ceremony and with every aspect of a guests’ experience considered, our expert Tea Master weighs and infuses bespoke tea blends for the perfect cup of tea. Delight in this wonderful interactive experience, with cakes and indulgent patisseries served from our heritage trolley on a bespoke line of Richard Brendon bone china. For a touch of elegance, enjoy a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne in Baccarat Mille Nuits champagne flutes with a nod to the breath-taking Baccarat crystal chandelier overhead.

    Afternoon tea is taken seriously at Corinthia London. Less convenient refreshment and more a fragrant ceremony to grace, charm and tradition. A slowly unfolding pleasure that must never be hurried. A delightful reminder that time is a luxury to be savoured. And ours is taken in a light-drenched lounge, illuminated by the warming glow of 1,001 Baccarat crystals. Traditional Afternoon Tea with one glass of rose champagne - £85 per person excludes service charge.

    The food at the corinthia was really delicious. Everything was very fresh, flavoursome and beautifully presented. The only downside we noticed is that some of the furniture was not in the best condition and for paying £200 plus for an afternoon tea for two we expected everything to be looking polished and kept up with. The staff were very nice and efficient but I think the room and setting mean we probably would not go back, but we did enjoy it for the time we were there!

    Booked this for our wedding anniversary. A warm welcome from the moment we arrived and were offered a choice of tables from which we could hear the pianist in the background. Fantastic interaction and personal attention throughout from the staff, great home prepared food starting with lovely sandwiches, moving on to freshly made scones and then cake. A couple of little extras knowing it was a special occasion for us. Completely relaxed at all times, with no attempt to rush us. Very handy for Embankment Pier and Underground, as well as Whitehall Gardens.

    Beautiful hotel and beautiful setting for afternoon tea. The sandwiches were tasty, the scones and cakes were good and if you like a sweeter tea, the honey orchid tea (which our server recommended after I told her that I didn't want the English Breakfast Tea) was wonderful. A must-do afternoon tea experience that took almost 2 hours.

    Thank you, Corinthia, for being prompt and responsive with your email communication! I had tried a few of the other "name brand" teatime services in London, and this was a far better experience. Beautiful, serene setting, and comfy chairs made for a great start. Our server was sweet, polite, and attentive. She refilled any favorites we asked for. Sandwiches, scones, and desserts were all yummy! Money well spent!

    Their customer service is truly a 5 star hotel quality. The tea room is quiet and you’ll hear a pianist play music. The presentation of the tea, scones, sweets and sandwiches are very very classy. It’s definitely worth the money to experience the English afternoon tea time at Corinthia. I went there as a one-time experience, but I’m actually open to going back the next time I travel to London.

The assistant manager who took care of us was explaining us every detail of the tradition. There is so much to eat that we had to take some food at home. A very beautiful evening.

    A very cute place to have high tea. Lots of sandwiches and you can get extra ones if you like. We couldn't finish all the food, the patisseries were great, a few of them are a bit too sweet, the scones could be better. We had a ton of extra to take home.

    The Afternoon Tea at Corinthia is a flawless experience in all aspects that truly count. The food is impeccable, the service is perfect, the ambience aptly assisted by a wonderful pianist, in a word is sublime. We tried their house blend and it was exactly what is required for a rainy London spring day. The sandwiches were plentiful and delicious. I especially recommend their cucumber, their egg mayo and their coronation chicken sandwiches. We had multiple helpings. The scones were delightful and the unexpected rhubarb jam was a lovely revelation. Each pastry was delicious to say the least. The selection of music by the talented pianist, the hospitality of the team and the overall ambience meant that what was supposed to be an hour stretched to nearly three. I will definitely return as often as I can to indulge!
