Afternoon tea is a delight best enjoyed in a beautiful setting, or, in our day and age, an Instagrammable one! The Holy Carrot Vegan afternoon tea at Urban Retreat will surely tick that box with a big permanent marker
Vegan Afternoon Tea
This vegan restaurant hosts an eco-friendly afternoon tea with Amelia Windsor, a fashion writer, and model. It’s a terrific spot to hang out with friends and eat good sustainable cuisine. Amelia takes the traditional British afternoon tea and gives it a beautiful twist. Vegan afternoon tea was a rare treat for me.
The bright and airy Harrods tea room includes elegant dining areas with brown seats, huge banquettes, and marble tables. Pampas flourish in this trendy café, adding a floral touch. Flowers swirling over the restaurant’s ceiling create a wonderful atmosphere.
Drinks at Holy Carrot
But what about food and drink? You’re in for a real treat. Beginner teas are available in the vast selection. Afternoon tea includes Champagne Piper-Heidsieck Essentiel Extra Brut or vodka gimlets. In the beginning, I had The Star, a unique drink made with Piper-Heidel Champagne and homemade blackberry sorbet.
It’s up to you whether or not you want to combine the champagne with the sorbet or drink the bubbly and enjoy the dessert afterward. Other cocktail offerings include The Hermit, using Stolichnaya Gluten Free Vodka, and The Devil which packs a tequila reposado punch!
From delicious Holy Carrot fresh juice made with carrots! TEA! And mocktails! In the Holy Carrot afternoon tea, I picked the Jasmine Silver Needle and could have enjoyed cup after cup.
Afternoon Tea Menu
The Three-tiered afternoon tea is generally served with sweet and savory food. Lots to eat, from graffiti bonbons to miso caramel trifle. In addition, comes a smoked salmon carrot sandwich and crostini with crab salad.
Certainly, there’s no denying that the Holy Carrot vegan afternoon tea is a food and drink diversity winner, and that vegan doesn’t have to imply blandly. Furthermore, each bite was a flavor explosion, and I’d return for more. To avoid overeating, Holy Carrot’s afternoon tea uses little bits like the chocolate cheesecake lollipop.
What was the general consensus? Above all, with full bellies and craving another cocktail we can safely say Holy Carrot gets a resounding yes from us. For proper posh nosh and tempting drinks that sway away from the norm, this is the Instagrammable haven for you.
The Holy Carrot vegan afternoon tea is served on Fridays and Saturdays from 3 pm-5 pm.
