Celebrating Afternoon Tea Week at Park Plaza




Did you know that it's Afternoon Tea Week so if there was ever a time to indulge in some scones and cream now is the time and why not I say? Everyone deserves a little treat every now and then and if you live in or around Cardiff I can highly recommend the Hendricks Gin Afternoon tea at Park Plaza if your looking for something just for adults with a fun and creative twist.

This is not actually the first time we have reviewed the Hendrick Afternoon tea, you can read my other reviews here. It is however the first time John and I have paired it up with a little spa session at Laguna Health and Spa before enjoying the teapot cocktail and indulgent cakes as part of the Hendrick's Afternoon Tea and Spa package. You have the choice of either a Laguna Signature back massage which is what John opted for or a divine Laguna Signature facial which is what I had and it honestly was the best facial I have ever had, perfect for anyone who needs a bit of a pick up.







As part of the package you have access to not only the relaxation room but also the indoor pool, spa bath, steam room and gym. We decided to take it slow after our treatment with some quiet time in the relaxation room which is filled with natural light, soft background music, comfy beds and fruit water on tap. A great place for a couples retreat or a moment of calm for busy parents and we could of easily spent a few hours relaxing here although once our Afternoon Tea was ready we made our way downstairs to the stylish Laguna Bar where the bartender made up the Hendrick Gin teapot cocktail, a divine combination of Gin, Elderflower liqueur, Maraschino liqueur, lemon juice and soda and makes the perfect accompaniment to finger sandwiches, warm sultana scones and artisan cakes and pastries.






If your looking to spoil someone or just want an indulgent lunch date with your partner or best friend then we completely recommend trying out this package. The cocktail is a little strong so do take your time with it but it was real sensation for the taste buds and I loved the mini French macaroons while John thought the rich Chocolate Opera Gateau was a hit. Do you think you will celebrate Afternoon Tea Week?

  9. I never knew there was a week dedicated to afternoon tea!! It seems that it is so popular to pop into somewhere swanky and have a relaxing afternoon. This is defintely what I need and I think I'll be booking myself into somewhere nearer me when I have a week off work.
