In the day or so after New Year 2012, I was feeling very English (ahem Welsh, to be honest ahem) and felt entirely gluttonous enough to splash out on afternoon tea at The Kensington Hotel with The Boyfriend.
As teas come, I find The Kensington Hotel‘s offerings to be quite modern and interesting, yet an experience which is ‘traditional‘ enough to please almost every type of tea-lounger.
