Afternoon tea is a long-standing British tradition and a must-try while in London. The city is famous for hosting some of the best options for this meal, with top hotels, restaurants and bars offering their take on the quintessentially British refreshment. Recently, traditional tea treats have been given an update, with many establishments putting a twist on classic offerings. Ting Shangri-la at the Shard and Kurobuta have created Asian-inspired afternoon tea, replacing scones, sandwiches and tarts with dumplings, ribs and sushi. For something a little less refined but equally delicious, Ma’ Plucker is offering an all-American-style tea, with crispy chicken, maple waffles and burgers on the menu.
