As the sound of gentle harp plays in the distance, the waitress swiftly begins tea service: minuscule raspberry and orange macaroons, and terracotta pots holding carrot cake are suspended above a wheat grass lawn at Conrad St. James. Savoury crudités are served with a delicious green pesto mayonnaise. Accompanied by chilled champagne and delicate earl grey tea served in glimmering silver pot, this is a feast for the eyes, ears and taste buds.
