Afternoon Tea at The Peninsula Paris is a sweet experience and not to be missed when in the City of Lights. I was invited to try their Afternoon Tea together with Parisbreakfast a few weeks ago and I must admit, when seeing my photos I am very tempted to go back. Who wouldn’t?
The Peninsula Paris offers a traditional Afternoon Tea and one that has been created by their pastry chef Julien Alvarez also known as a World Champion in pastry. Beeing smart we asked for one of each and after have chosing our tea to go with it we were served Peninsula‘s own bubbly champagne while waiting for our Afternoon Tea. In short two Afternoon Tea stands were placed on our table and our waitress kindly presented and described each and every mini pastry and finger sandwhiches. We were ready to dig in! I loved everything, the finger sandwiches and the scones that were served with differend jams and clotted cream. Clotted cream and scones are obligatory in an Afternoon Tea and I must say these fresh baked scones with raisins were very yummie. The mini pastries too, bananoffee cake, carrot cake…one things is sure, you get spoiled. The service was impeccable, very attentive waitresses and waiters making sure we had everything we needed while enjoying our Afternoon Tea on The Kléber Terrace.
