Afternoon Tea

afternoontea sheraton1

I've discovered yet another place to have Afternoon Tea in Stockholm. My friend Pia has made it her mission to try every place that offers it, and I'm happy to tag along. And our last discovery was Sheraton hotel. They offer afternoon tea from 3 pm, in front of a gorgeous, large fireplace. It was really very cosy, especially on a cold winter day. There were plenty of tiny sandwiches and scones with blueberry jam and whipped cream, and also an assortment of petits fours and cookies. And tea, of course - a pretty basic selection, but good nonetheless. We paid 110 SEK each (just two weeks ago), which felt very reasonable, but the website now states that it's 165 SEK - and I don't know if I'd pay *that* much for it.

I LOVE afternoon tea, it's one of England's better inventions. Nothing compares to sitting in a luxurious setting, sipping tea and indulging...

But have you ever tried clotted cream? It is so much better than whipped cream, in fact it is to die for (well, you could easily get a cardiac arrest eating it, it's so fatty, so that claim could be literal).

If you ever find yourself in Brighton you must go the the Grand Hotel on the seafront, their afternoon tea is divine!

Waspgoddes - thanks for the tip! I actually haven't tried it - just a fairly bad imitation that was more like butter than anything else. I've never seen proper clotted cream in Sweden. I'm thinking that it's probably made from unpasteurized cream - which is not sold here. In fact, all dairy in Sweden, sold to the general public, must be pasteurized. (I think there are certain exceptions, but I'm not completely sure.)

Mmm. Undrar om det finns i Göteborg med? Finns definitivt inte i Stenungsund.

IT-mamman, nåt fik borde väl ha slagit sig på den idén tycker man! Annars får du fixa eget, det är verkligen supermysigt :)

Det går att göra clotted cream själv, det blir riktigt bra. Jag saknade det så mycket när jag flyttade hem från England att jag var tvungen att fixa det på något sätt :)
