London | A Boutique Afternoon Tea with Lalani & Co.

For those of you in London…

…take note! Lalani & Co. and The Modern Pantry are co-hosting A Boutique Afternoon Tea. I briefly mentioned Lalani & Co. <a href=" the Big Island Tea Farm in Hawai’i (available at Harrods for $4,800 a pound).

Here’s the afternoon tea menu. Six courses, each paired with a tea* from Lalani’s & Co.’s collection. I am most curious about the sencha mayonnaise!

*Tea + food pairings are so much fun. Remember the In Pursuit of Tea  dinner from 2011? And the one with Le Palais des Thés?
