A magical afternoon tea in Central London.
Running through the rain in Soho one summers afternoon we arrived at Cutter & Squidge, London’s only 100% all natural bakery. They make everything from scratch and use British ingredients and British producers.
While the ground floor holds the bakery and tea room, their basement holds a surprise.
Descending the stairs of we found ourselves entering into a magical world. This was the potion class at Wizard school and we were about to experience a very special 2 hour Afternoon Tea.
First we needed to get cloaked up.
Then we were seated at a school-style desk for 2. The room is arranged as a classroom with everyone in tables of two apart from the table for three at the back.
Once we were all seated our Potions Master introduced himself as Professor Engelbert Slaptyback. He told us he would be teaching our session.
Soon he had us whisking up potions and concoctions. During the “lesson” he paced the room, giving suggestions and awarding compliments……and tokens.
Then our tea arrived. We chose Unicorn Tears tea and Elixir of Life tea.
This was followed by sandwiches and cakes.
After tea there was another surprise.
