Afternoon tea. What better way to my heart? (apart from perhaps Joseph Gordon-Levitt served on a plate, ahem).
Back to reality with a delicious thud, at the Sanderson Hotel’s Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea.
A blistering hot day in the city called for a table situated in the Courtyard Garden – a backdrop of bamboo, flowering trees and a meandering stream created instant tranquility. With menus buried in old hardback books, sugar cubes served in jewellery boxes and flavoured tea leaves in perfume bottles it wasn’t going to take much to make it the best Afternoon Tea I’ve experienced.
I opted for mint chocolate chip tea – yes that is a thing (the best thing FYI). Alongside an array of rolled up sandwiches, marshmallow toadstools and even a ‘drink me’ bottle filled with 3 layers of crazy good flavours, I could’ve easily been Alice in Wonderland.
Now, you may have noticed some pretty little additions to the table, in the form of One Love Organics. Amidst the amazing food, I was really there to find out more about this American brand.
The packaging is simple and pretty with no fuss. Clearly, organic and natural brands are huge – everyone is getting on the hype, but One Love Organics are one of the better ones. They use 100% natural ingredients, don’t plump any of them up with water and are all hand-made – and because they’re so pure, it means their products are multi-purpose, making them suitable for you, me, our grandmas and our babies. Being an organic brand, some products can be pretty pricey – but with some items starting as low as £9.00 you’ll be sure to find something within everyone’s budget.
Keep your eyes peeled for a in-depth review on the products themselves, I’m particularly excited to get down and dirty clean with the Brand New Day masque.
Probably definitely one of my favourite events I’ve attended since starting blogging – and I can’t wait to share more with you on this lovely brand!
