The drinking of tea not only became a social event for the upper classes, it altered the time and manner in which they took tea. High tea is somewhat of a tradition in London and people from all over the world book at London’s top tea spots to sip on tea and eat delicious little foods. The experience of a high tea is best shared with a best friend and lots of gossip to catch up on.

A high tea served with gin infused Veuve cocktails is a good way to spend an afternoon, High tea found us sitting at Pont St in The Belgravia Hotel, this hotel is a chic boutique style hotel that brings Bohemia to Belgravia, combining New York’s loft style with the stately traditions of Britain.
