Tea leaves come in a cast-iron teapot, but the real treats are the outlandish sweets: chocolate and raspberry cupcake doused with popping candy; pineapple lollipops that morph from hot to cold in your mouth; and hazelnut and passionfruit tart topped with the White Rabbit's pocket watch ­ in dark chocolate, and set to tea time. 3 5 The sTaFFord london By kempinski Located in the heart of St James, Kempinski's stellar revitalisation of this classic London property has kept its Afternoon High Tea (£29) as traditional as ever. Stroll through the cobbled carriage house mews and cigar bar into the salon, where besuited waiters pour a selection of continental and Asian teas, before presenting a stacked selection of sandwiches, cakes, petits fours and lashings of cream. Afterwards, head upstairs to a quintessentially English bedroom (from £275) for sweet dreams of sugarplums and scones. st.

Following teas, diners are then presented with a silver tankard of charcoal-mellowed Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Tennessee Whiskey and a Montecristo cigar to leisurely smoke on the roof garden afterwards. 20 Warwick street The langham This Regents Street standby's whimsically-named G and Tea (£40) gets your juices flowing with a tall glass of Beefeater gin and tonic ­ or a flute of awardwinning Laurent-Perrier NV champagne.
