Style | Blackberry Afternoon Tea

Who else loves a bit of afternoon tea?
I have quite a sweet tooth so love trying different ones especially now they are becoming quite a thing. Last weekend I got to try the BlackBerry version at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Birmingham and it was beautiful!

The moment it came out I was so excited by the three tiered stand of little luxuries.
Most afternoon teas consist of sandwiches, cakes and scones but this one was just that little bit extra special, even the colours all matched.

The selection consisted of a choice of 3 scones - plain, fruit AND chocolate chip, don't know about you but I haven't tried chocolate chip ones before so this was definitely a good choice! Then onto the savoury selection which didn't just consist of sandwiches but a beautiful rye bread topped with smoked salmon, bruschetta topped with pesto and tomato and another piece  with chicken and bacon mayo - absolutely gorgeous.

Finally onto the best part... the sweet stuff! There were 5 little sweet treats, a tiny purple macaron, a square of cake topped with a blueberry and buttercream, a small shot glass of yogurt mixed with berries and finished with a pretty edible pansy and finally a bitesize piece of cheesecake....oh and a teeny tiny cherry bakewell... yum!

Not only was it tasty but it was presented in the most beautiful way with a theme of Reds and Purples. It was almost too nice to eat as I didn't want to mess up the presentation! you can probably tell by how many photos I took!

It was the best afternoon tea I have experienced and would highly recommend it. Not only that but they do themed versions every season so can't wait to see what next season brings!
