An afternoon tea with a North African twist

Acclaimed restaurant Momo – tucked away in the cobbled enclave of London’s Heddon Street – launches its new afternoon tea next week.

Available from 6 December, the tea has been inspired by Moroccan flavours and is an exquisite blend of classic English treats and North African sweets – perfect for winter West End shoppers who want to warm up in style.

Guests can sample a selection of Moroccan pastries, mini fruit cheesecakes, chocolate and coriander delice, crepes berber with dates and almond ice cream plus two Scones with clotted cream and strawberry and fig jam. For those who want to try something more savoury, there is also smoke salmon with lemon confit, Moroccan-style chicken wraps and the Momo quiche.

An extensive range of traditional teas such as Assam and Darjeeling will be available, as well as a more exotic variety of mint and green teas and the special Fakirs tea, which is a blend of cardamom and citrus.

The tea has been created by Chef David Jones will be served on delicate Moroccan tiered cake stands coupled with traditional brass teapots, which owner Mourad Mazouz sourced especially for the occasion.

Guests can also take their afternoon tea with a glass of Champagne, or The Momo Special mix of vodka shaken with fresh mint, lemon sugar and topped with soda water.

Afternoon at Momo will be served at 2.30pm-5.30pm everyday from 6 December, prices start at ?9.50 for tea and scones whilst the full selection including cakes, savoury snacks and teas will be priced ?22 per person. Afternoon at Momo with Champagne or The Momo Special will be priced at ?32 per person. For more information see
