Satiating the UK’s resurgent passion for traditional afternoon tea but going one step further, 51 Buckingham Gate, Taj Suites and Residences and Luxor Champagne have created a 24 Carat Gold Afternoon Tea, which includes edible gold.

The new afternoon tea will feature a half bottle of Luxor Pure Gold 24K Brut Champagne, which includes flakes of 24-Carat Gold and is one of the world’s most prestigious and rare sparkling wines. Produced in the Champagne region, Luxor was created due to founder Jean-Christophe Rousseau’s fascination with gold, and his desire to marry one of the most coveted treasures in history with the most luxurious of drinks. This exclusive Brut is a blend of 90% Pinot Noir, 7% Chardonnay and 3% Pinot Meunier.

London’s Afternoon Tea aficionados can expect a dining experience of unparalleled opulence. Inspired by Luxor, Executive Chef Vikas Milhoutra, has created a series of decadent delights, also made with edible gold. The 24 Carat Gold Afternoon Tea includes a Gold Leaf JellyWhite Chocolate Delight with Gold Leaf and Strawberry Tart with Gold Flakes and is accompanied by a selection of scones and delicate finger sandwiches.

The 24 Carat Gold Afternoon Tea is available at an introductory price of £99 (AUD$154) for two. Booking is required with a 24-hour notice. It includes a range of scones, cakes and sandwiches as well as half a bottle of Luxor Gold Leaf Champagne.
