Tea at the Royal Opera House is your opportunity to enjoy a sophisticated Afternoon Tea in the beautiful surroundings of the Paul Hamlyn Hall. We mark this delightful occasion with specially commissioned screens featuring exotic birds, plants and flowers in Fauvist style, inspired by Covent Garden’s historic flower market.

The menu begins with brioche, sandwiches and freshly baked scones accompanied by a changing roster of homemade seasonal fruit jams. There follows a fabulous range of cakes and pastries combining the finest British ingredients with sumptuous recipes and elegant presentation.

This season we are collaborating with natural beauty brand L’Occitane to introduce a limited edition floral afternoon tea. The new menu, inspired by L’Occitane’s La Collection de Grasse, will take its cue from the top notes prevalent in each scent.

Enhancing the sensory experience with both taste and smell, guests will choose from the collection of three matching scents - Jasmin & Bergamote, Néroli & Orchidée or Thé Vert & Bigarade – to accompany their tea.

Naturally Tea at the Royal Opera House offers guests a wide range of loose leaf teas, tisanes, tea-themed cocktails and Champagne from Ruinart. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free menus are also available.
