I do very much enjoy Afternoon Tea and so when the chance to review a complimentary Afternoon Tea at the Lanes of London restaurant which was chocolate themed came along, I absolutely jumped at the chance. As a specialist in writing about and tasting chocolate, I was looking forward to the experience.

The Choc on Choc afternoon tea is being offered at the Lanes of London restaurant at the Marriott on Park Lane and replaces some of the items with chocolate replicas. At £39.50 with no refreshed food but unlimited refreshments of the tea/coffee/hot chocolate, it is one of the pricier Afternoon Teas I’ve had this week (theoretically) but the Jing tea certainly made it an interesting Afternoon Tea experience.

The afternoon tea is brought on a multi-tier tray with glass shelves festooned with greenery to create a natural-looking base. Then layered on top are things like a little flowerpot containing cake, the chocolate cucumber sandwich, and other savouries and sweets.

So if you, like me, were wondering what element of the cucumber sandwich was chocolat, I can now say with confidence – all of it. There was a mostly solid white chocolate scone (a white chocolate capsule of jam made it a jam-filled, mostly solid white chocolate scone., Decorated to look just like a scone it was cute.

The solid white chocolate cucumber sandwich with white chocolate dyed green for the cucumber added to the chocolate pieces of the tea. It was finished off with two chocolate biscuit replicas with the milk chocolate digestive the one I ate the most of.
