Jacaranda were delighted to be asked to produce a rather special afternoon tea on behalf of the Lanesborough Hotel London at this years International Polo. It was a super day for the game and it was nice to see a few well know faces there including Sophie Ellis Bextor and Jodie Kidd. Served with all the beloved trimmings, the Afternoon Tea included freshly baked scones, thick clotted cream and home made fruit preserves. The pressure was on to get this event right as the Lanesborough Hotel has won prestigious awards from the UK Tea Council no less for the last three. Jacaranda had prepared well for the event including sending key staff to the London to gain an understanding of the ethos of the product and hotel and conducting a tasting for the Lanesborough at our tasting room at Cowdray Park.
Amongst others it was a pleasure to meet and have tea prepared by Karl Kessab, England’s first tea sommelier who guides you with your personal tea selection and discusses varieties of tea that have been carefully selected and generally purchased at auction.
