Afternoon tea treats of Langham Place, Xiamen


For 150 years, afternoon tea has been part of The Langham legacy. Salle À Manger at The Langham, London is famous for being the place where the afternoon tea tradition was born in 1865. The affair simply consisted of dainty comforting items such as cakes, sweets, bread and butter, accompanied by, of course, tea.

To commemorate the 150th birthday of the original London hotel, the Langham Place, Xiamen Last Friday afternoon invited Mr. Stuart Rawlinson, Twinings Tea Ambassador from England, to hold an English afternoon tea party at the hotel’s lobby lounge. Mr. Rawlinson has received extensive training at the company's headquarters in Hampshire, England, learning about the history, processing and manufacture of different kinds of teas from around the world. Mr. Rawlinson showed the guests how a traditional afternoon tea is presented and served, explained the etiquette of afternoon tea, and shared interesting stories about tea.
