A Taste of Britain Tiffin

A Taste of Britain Tiffin

Auckland, March 12, 2014 - It’s all about Britain at the Langham Auckland this April.

The Royals and the Rolling Stones are in town and our elegant new Palm Court has opened its doors, so to celebrate we’ve created a delicious Brit-inspired Tiffin Afternoon Tea.

Tiffin Afternoon Tea, reputedly started by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the 1840s and first served at The Langham, London in 1865, continues to surprise and delight guests every afternoon in the sumptuous surroundings of Palm Court.

Here, the most exquisite little treats arrive on silver stands and fine Wedgwood china only to be devoured within seconds. So throughout April, we’ll thank Britain for this wonderful tradition and more, with a special afternoon tea menu.

There’ll be sumptuous treats from coronation chicken to jam roly-poly puddings, all on Wedgwood china, and matched with the world’s finest teas and Champagnes.

Better still, this Taste of Britain will put you in a draw to drive the amazing Jaguar XF for a week. It doesn’t get more British than that.

The Taste of Britain Afternoon Tea will be served daily at 11.30 and 2.30pm from April 1-30 in Palm Court. Make your booking now on 09 300 2924 or tlakl.palmcourt@langhamhotels.com
