The Westin introduce a twist on tea

Afternoon tea in Dublin's city centre has undergone a facelift with The Westin turning their tea service into A Most Peculiar Afternoon Tea , bringing on board Hendrick's Gin as a partner.

The mixology team at the central Dublin hotel have pioneered a special cocktail 'tea', a special blend of Hendrick's Victoria Mojito with mint, lime and freshly pressed apple juice. Of course a selection of fine leaf tea and gourmet coffee is also available.

The menu has gone under transformation as well, introducing dishes like confit of pork cheek with stilton and honey aioli, a charcoal cone filled with prawn cocktail and spiced beef as well as freshly baked banana and walnut bread served with cinnamon and honey butter.

Also included in the other wordly experience will be popcorn panna cotta with a toffee popcorn crumble, popping candy vanilla marshmallows and a tarragon cookie with a white chocolate and lime ganache. One of the signature staples of the tea service is their chocolate and caramel sea salt brownie.

Tradition hasn't been completely thrown out the window, the sandwiches on offer include cucumber and dill on white bread, free range egg and cress on wholemeal, roast beef with horseradish, smoked salmon and cottage cheese on stoneground brown. Fresh from the oven buttermilk fruit scones come served with clotted cream and strawberry jams.

The service takes place in the Atrium of the five star Westin Hotel on Westmoreland Street, from 2:30pm until 6pm daily for a cost of €24 per person.

Increase the indulgence factor with your afternoon tea experience by adding a glass of champagne to the mix. A glass of Taittinger Brut NV Champagne brings the cost to €40 or a glass of Taittinger Rosé NV Champagne takes it to €42.
