Pop-up festive English afternoon tea in Rome’s Hotel Eden
Temperatures are dropping, the wind is chilly and Christmas decorations are filling the streets. That holiday spirit is starting to sink in in the Eternal City. And this year, the renowned Hotel Eden sends you season’s greetings with its all-new pop-up Festive Afternoon Tea.
Thanks to the collaboration with London’s The Dorchester Hotel, a little chunk of English tradition arrives to Rome. And what better way to embrace this afternoon tea ritual than in Hotel Eden’s luxurious La Libreria room?
Till January 7th, 2018, La Libreria transforms itself into one of England’s famous tearooms. And to immerse its guests into the holiday spirit, La Libreria has been soaked in Christmas decorations. Beautiful lights, a giant Christmas tree surrounded by gifts, and a warm, festive atmosphere dominates the room. Every day, the afternoon tea ritual is accompanied by cello music, while on December Sundays a gospel choir will sing and spread holiday joy. But the best part is yet to come!
A selection of finger sandwiches, sweet pastries, and fluffy scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam await you. But the yummy food served on three-tier silver trays doesn’t steal the spotlight from the excellent signature tea selection of Florence’s historic “La Via del Tè”. Along with your food, you can choose from 12 prestigious tea blends coming from China, India, Sri Lanka, Japan and Taiwan – as well as the special “Orange Christmas” blend.
And if you want to go full-swing with English tradition, you can indulge in a Champagne afternoon tea by adding a flute of sparkling Franciacorta Ca’ del Bosco or a flute of Laurent-Perrier Rosé to your experience.
Thanks to The Promenade – The Dorchester Hotel’s iconic tearoom – awarded the Award of Excellence by “The British Tea Guild” in 2000, 2003, 2007 and from 2011 till 2013, Hotel Eden presents you with an early Christmas gift to treat yourself to an elegant ritual in pure British style.
