Can you dream up a perfect afternoon tea with endless cakes, sandwiches, and special drinks, while you overlook St. Pauls and the River Thames? Well, you don’t need to because The Mondrian’s Wyld Tea at Dandelyan already did it for you.
My friend and I sat for a blissful afternoon tea one icy wintry day, and I couldn’t believe the thought that went into every detail. The interiors were obviously stunning and so unique. The green and pink so on trend! I adore the bubbly pink sofas!
The Wyld tea was incredible. It’s a total retro throwback with a 70’s inspired menu, with no less than four specially designed floral-inspired cocktails/mocktails to accompany your tea throughout the course. I chose a bright Zest Tea – a nice complement to the sweets and the other drinks. The savories: a mix of traditional finger sandwiches and more daring fare like leek and goat’s cheese rarebit and chicken confit and bacon jam pinwheel.
My favorite drink – something with lime and basil – had a toasted marshmallow on top and if the pink and green interiors hadn’t already won me over, well that just did the trick!
The cakes were tiny and adorable and delicious. I loved the pine scented baked alaska. Though, the real star of the show was the nutmeg custard tart. So much butter and caramel in one small package, I was already dreaming of returning for another one halfway through. And even though everything is so small, I can somehow never make it through an entire afternoon tea. Maybe a lofty goal worth setting for 2018, do you think?
Thank you for the lovely Wyld Tea, Dandelyan, I can’t wait to come again. Definitely one of my favorite afternoon teas I’ve had! If you’d like to book, here’s a link. Really though, trust me on the nutmeg custard tart, it’s a must!
