'The Palm Court is an elegant setting for an afternoon tea,' recommends Pei. 'The Jasmine Silver Needle with Rosebuds is very fragrant and the tearoom's house blend is reviving if it is given the chance to brew for a bit. The little chocolate mousses and amuse-bouches of lemon posset are exquisite. The skinless tomato and cream cheese sandwiches are to die for.'
