Welcome to Afternoon Tea
Served between 2:45PM and 5:30PM
The Creation of Afternoon Tea
The creation of Afternoon Tea, is credited to a lifelong friend of Queen Victoria, Anna Maria Russell, 7th Duchess of Bedford in 1840. Afternoon Tea was said to satisfy her peckishness during the long wait between lunch and dinner. Today at Chocolate Secrets, we continue this thoroughly English tradition.
Chocolate Secrets Afternoon Tea
Our menu follows the traditional Afternoon Tea combination of sweet and savory. The ingredients include an assortment of Tea Sandwiches, Scones (served warm), delectable house made pastries, and accoutrements.
Of course, at the heart of the experience is the tea itself. Chocolate Secrets offers a variety of flavors, from Organic English Breakfast to the refreshingly complex Chocolate Secrets blends.
Very Finest Bone China & Silverware
Your afternoon tea is served on white linens, and the very finest bone china and silverware.
Delicate layers of Severn & Wye smoked salmon
served on rye bread with brown shrimp,
horseradish, juniper and caraway.
The roasted chicken is dressed with mayonnaise
and accompanied with lettuce, roasted corn
and marjoram served on a slice of house-made bread.
Our ham sandwich is served on house-made
bread accompanied by caramelized apple,
calvados & cinnamon butter.
Our Organic eggs are cooked to retain
their waxy texture and then chopped by hand and
turned with organic mayonnaise.
The egg salad is finished with a good twist of black pepper, and crisp shallots, all atop fresh House-Made bread.
Our cucumbers are grown organically and
served with lemon and watercress cream Cheese, As per
tradition, it comes on a soft, house-made, white bread, recalling
the time when white bread was a culinary
sensation thanks to 19th century milling techniques.
Note: You might notice there is always a consistent balance between the thickness of the bread and the filling in our sandwiches, so that the filling is the same depth as the carefully sliced bread. Unlike bread sliced for toasting, ours is laterally sliced so that it retains its shape, and is a pleasure to look at and eat.
Scones, Macarons & Other Handmade Pastries
Each of our pastries is made in-house using premium, organic, and natural ingredients. Our confections include over 25 flavors of French Macarons, an impressive array of scones, cookies, eclairs, tarts, petit fours and more.
Bonbons & Truffles
Established in 2003, Chocolate Secrets is a gourmet chocolate and fine wine “Experience.” There are 7 countries represented in our kitchen and our combined culinary experience exceeds 100 years. With all this talent, its not surprising that Chocolate secrets hand makes over 52 flavors of bonbons and truffles.
