**Afternoon tea with R Chocolate**

There is something quintessentially British about afternoon tea. Afternoon tea is the perfect setting to sit in good company, eat delicate cakes and drink tea. I was recently invited to review a very fabulous, chocolatey afternoon tea with R Chocolate… how could I refuse?

 

R Chocolate is a British chocolatier passionate about creating rich, indulgent chocolate. I tasted their chocolate at a press event in July and it is just delicious, but what makes this company stand out is the involvement it has with Elephant Family. R Chocolate supports some brilliant conservation efforts in regards to the declining numbers of elephants, with 10% of sales from their elephant shaped chocolates being donated to Elephant Family.

 

We arrived at the R Chocolate shop located in Belgravia, to find a very calming pocket hidden away from the hustle and bustle of London life. Behind a long, curved glass counter sits an array of perfectly created chocolates, while the sides and wall are adorned with elephants, noting the involvement R chocolate has in helping protect the gentle giants.

My time in London had been a complete whirlwind, with a day of sightseeing, followed by a day at a Netflix press event, followed by a night at the theatre. I was exhausted and ready for a relaxing afternoon, sipping at tea and nibbling on cake. The atmosphere was really therapeutic, with everything a seemingly slower pace to the rest of London.

 

On our table we had a multi-tiered cake stand layered with different tasty chocolate treats and scones. The scones were amazing, with two being peppered with dark chocolate taking it to a whole new level of sweetness. The Victoria sponge was a really interesting addition to the mainly chocolate focused afternoon tea, the sponge itself was actually quite dense and unusual, but wonderfully delicious.

As part of our Afternoon Tea, we were given a hot drink and a glass each of Chocolate infused sparking wine. I’m a bit fussy with sparkling wines and champagnes, but this was absolutely delicious. I’ll definitely be ordering some for our Christmas festivities.

There is such a great mixture of items that suit different tastes, which can be quite tricky when it comes to afternoon tea. I personally prefer more singular flavours or light sweet food, so I loved the mini chocolate loaf, the lemon drizzle and the Victoria sponge. Mr. C on the other hand prefers a mixture of flavours and more dense sweet food, so he loved the Grand Cru mousse with a sea salt caramel centre, on a hazelnut biscuit and the mousse on Pistachio biscuit. We were also given a fabulous Raspberry trifle, which was the perfect blend of sharp, sweet and smooth flavours. No surprises it went down a treat with both of us.

 

We’ve found at a few afternoon teas we have attended over the years, that you come away feeling quite hungry but the afternoon tea at R Chocolate leaves you feeling guilty for not being able to eat it all knowing it tastes incredible. We were very kindly given what we couldn’t eat into a box for us to finish on the train back to Cheshire. That helped with the guilt!

 

We absolutely loved our Afternoon Tea at R Chocolate and would love to visit again the next time we are in London. It really is the perfect place to enjoy a calming pocket of London with good friends over tea, cake and chocolate infused sparkling wine.

 

If you can’t make your way to London, they also have a range of beautifully crafted chocolates, hampers, champagnes and wines available to order from their website.
