Spanish Afternoon Tea

My friend Sweetie has been travelling for 6 months. We spoke at least once a week via text or phone, and I was worried that things might have changed when she came back, that things might not have been how they were. But I was silly to worry, as with all great friends, things never change. We still talk about boys, clothes and our hopes and dreams. When she came back from visiting faraway places like Thailand and Australia, I thought I would celebrate her birthday by taking her for her first ever afternoon tea…with a twist. Spanish Afternoon Tea | Levanah LovesSpanish Afternoon Tea at the Melia White House Hotel (Regents Park) seemed like the perfect choice. My Dad is from Gibraltar so most of the things on the menu really appealed to me, having grown up with Spanish food made at home. For savoury treats, we had mini baguettes with Pata Negra ham and tomatoes, Spanish tortilla with a mayonnaise topping, salmon and piquillo peppers and soft cream cheese finger sandwiches. All very delicious!

I didn’t particularly like the mini Tocinillo de cielo (caramel pudding) or the mini Catalan cream. I would have eaten the traditional almond cake but we were so full! I would definitely go back to have the Spanish Afternoon Tea again. The staff were so accommodating and the setting is just at the end of Regent street, a great place to put your feet up after a day of shopping. We washed it all down with a lovely cup of tea.
