Quintessentially British, a divine herb, which transforms into a magical elixir, historically used as a medicine, calming yet uplifting; this is tea! Many moons ago (circa 1840) the Duchess of Bedford commissioned the ceremony of having tea and sandwiches in the company of good friends – much like an indoor picnic! Since then the afternoon tea has evolved to become contemporary, a twisted classic and a sophisticated celebratory gathering.
At MAP Maison we have an eclectic tea selection, which has been carefully designed in collaboration with one of the UK’s top tea specialists. Satisfy your taste buds with the Mi Lan Dan Cong, known as the champagne of Oolong tea, the wild organic Rooibos whose leaves only grow in one area of the world or the Chocolate Tea boasting a malty blend of vanilla pod and Peruvian cocoa nibs. Whatever your cup of tea, there will something for everyone to enjoy.
Accompanying the tea menu is our tapas styled selection of savouries and sweets. Following a variation of the traditional afternoon tea theme, our savoury choices include; mini baguettes with Iberico and Bellota ham, mini cheeseburgers and tempting vegetarian bites. On the sweet side we offer a range of high end patisseries such as; cocnut and chocoalate cremeux, raspberry choux, mini chocolate butterscotch tart and opera cake.
The MAP Afternoon Tea Party can also be enjoyed with tea only, prosecco, champagne or in the company of our classic and experimental cocktails. Please ask our team for more information when making your reservation. We look forward to welcoming you!
