After an inspiring visit to Greenway, Tea with Mary Kate was thrilled to discover that Browns have created a “Christie Tea” to celebrate her 120th birthday
What more perfect a venue to hold a celebratory afternoon tea for Agatha’s 120th birthday than the English Tea room at Brown’s Hotel in London. Located in the heart of Mayfair on Albemarle Street, Brown’s was the first hotel ever to open in London, but more importantly, it was the hotel that provided Agatha with the inspiration for her novel “At Bertrams Hotel”. I am sure she would quite approve.
I have no doubt that Agatha would be delighted at the imaginative cake creations,
Inspired by her amazing books, I think the “Queen of Crime” would be equally thrilled at the prospect of afternoon tea, as the cupboards at her own home at Greenway were packed full of beautiful china tea cups. The “Evil under the Sun” lemon tartlet and “The Clocks” macaroon look almost too good to eat – well almost!
A Christie tes is available from 12th – 19th September 2010.
Brown’s is just the perfect venue for a mysterious Agatha Christie afternoon tea. With such exquisite surroundings, gorgeous tea and inspirational cakes, Tea with Mary Kate is already imagining sitting by the cosy fire reading one of Agatha’s wonderful mysteries. What more splendid a way to spend an afternoon, do take time for a Christie inspired tea if you can.
