Isobel High Tea
““I always want to know the things one shouldn't do."
"So as to do them?" asked her aunt.
"So as to choose." said Isabel.” The Portrait of a Lady – Henry James
The Isabel evokes a feeling of elegance. Of stepping back into a period of time when the afternoon tea was more than just refreshment, it was an event. One to be savoured, shared with family, friends and acquaintances who would nibble on cucumber sandwiches, sip strongly brewed tea and discuss the events of the day. Grace and style were the watchwords of the time and afternoon tea was the embodiment of these ideas.
This tea is no less elegant, but a lot more delicious. Salmon filled croissants, stacked tomato caprese, peppermint shots, scones drenched in lashings of organic jam and fresh cream – these are just a few of the beautiful treats that await your special event when you book the Isabel with us at Café Hemingway’s.
