My dears, it goes almost without saying that Tea with Mary Kate is a British girl through and through, with a nod to tradition, and of course afternoon tea. Another tea ceremony that I have had the great privilege of experiencing is in Japan. It is quite different but equally unique. Influenced by its Japanese roots, Nobu has now created an alternative to the traditional British afternoon tea and is launching its menu inspired by a combination of both traditions – a Japanese inspired afternoon tea! The Green Tea menu selection looks like a fabulous choice on its own – I can hardly contain my excitement at the prospect of such a splendid time out for tea. Any invitations to experience this fusion will be gratefully received!
