SheerLuxe, 29th April 2023.

The Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III and Her Majesty The Queen Consort is fast approaching. If you’re looking for ways to celebrate in style, few things will mark the occasion better than a special afternoon tea. From traditional London venues to some of our favourite out-of-town spots, we’ve rounded up 12 of the best Coronation-themed teas taking place in the lead up to this historic event…

University Arms, Cambridge:

Take a trip to the historic town of Cambridge to enjoy a delightfully indulgent Coronation-themed afternoon tea at University Arm’s flagship restaurant, Parker’s Tavern. The tea is inspired by tastes of British royalty and includes a traditional strawberry Victoria sponge, named after Queen Victoria, a Darjeeling tea and honey macaron, a rose and pistachio Battenberg, which was originally created as wedding gift for Prince Louis of Battenberg and Princess Victoria (granddaughter of Queen Victoria), a royal gala apple crumble choux and a lemon custard tart, the late Queen Elizabeth’s favourite. Freshly baked, warm scones will be served with raspberry jam and clotted cream. Savoury items include sandwiches – smoked salmon and cucumber, beef and horseradish, and egg and cress – as well as a Coronation chicken salad and truffle sausage rolls. Choose from a selection of classic teas by tea brand Newby and raise a toast to the new monarch with a glass of one of England’s most exciting new producers, Saffron Grange. On leaving, you will get a corgi-shaped shortbread to take home.
