Leisurely, luscious and decidedly luxurious, afternoon tea at the Mount Nelson is usually taken in the sumptuous indoor lounge, where an impressive spread of sweet and savoury treats and a symphony of soothing piano tunes beckons.
Although the majestic hotel is currently closed to guests, its famed teatime ritual can still be enjoyed – in the comfort of our own living rooms – with all the accoutrements that this legendary pastime is known for. That’s right, The Mount Nelson’s heavenly afternoon tea is now available for delivery to your door.
Afternoon tea at home
Specially prepared by chefs Rudi Liebenberg and Craig Hibbert, each at-home afternoon tea delivery includes a selection of sweet and savoury items, complemented by two aromatic loose-leaf teas.
You’ll even have the accompanying music: a Spotify playlist created by resident Belmond Mount Nelson pianist, Henri Dyke. And, should you wish to feel even more ensconced in the lounge, you can watch a video of Henri playing his exclusive afternoon set at a classic Belmond Mount Nelson afternoon tea.
