Afternoon Tea at Radisson Blu

Editing these photos has made me SO hungry. You have been warned.

Last week I was invited by Radisson Blu to try Afternoon Tea at their Leeds hotel. As it was half term, I took my lovely teacher friend Laura for a decadent Tuesday afternoon treat. And what a treat it was!


As I live in Leeds, I’ve never actually had cause to go in the Radisson Blu (which is a hotel, for the uninitiated). The building itself is quite lovely and inside is very art deco, which is always a good thing.

Once seated, we started with this spectacular flowering tea. I’m not much of a tea drinker really, but it was worth getting a pot just to see it bloom. Admittedly we did compare it to the birth of the alien in Alien, but it actually tasted delicious – really light and refreshing.

We went for the High Tea, which includes three types of sandwiches, scones with jam and fresh cream, fresh fruit, a chocolate fondue, assorted cakes and a glass of champagne. Everything looked as an afternoon tea should – dainty, adorable and very tasty.

We dipped, sipped and munched our way through SO much – the servings are deceptively small and what looks like a light lunch for ladies is actually very hearty and filling. Especially as we asked for extra berries to finish off the fondue…

The staff at Radisson Blu were great – as well as the aforementioned extra berries, they also brought out this amazing smoking teapot. It was dry ice in water and kept going for ages. A brilliant spectacle, especially if you have little ones with you.

This is Thorntons Arcade in Leeds – not related to the post, but so lovely I had to include it. 

We left feeling suitably full and a little lightheaded after a great catch up. It might not be top of your list for afternoon tea locations, but the quality of the food and service from Radisson Blu are definitely worth checking out.

Afternoon Tea at the Radisson Blu in Leeds is £14.50 per person, while High Tea (as seen here) is £22.50 per person. You can take a look at the menu here. I was provided this experience for free for review purposes.



This looks delicious! I love afternoon tea, I actually had one on Sunday at The Bloomsbury Hotel which was really nice. I love flowering tea, it’s always so refreshing! It looks rather cool too.

I just adore miniature things! Although I’m not much of a hot tea drinker I do enjoy tea parties simply for the novelty, especially since they are typically in quaint settings.. It looks So lovely!

This looks gorgeous, I’m hoping to take my nan and mum for Afternoon Tea as a Christmas treat and hope it’s as good as this.


This is really lovely!! I stayed not long ago at the Raddison Blu in Sofia, Bulgaria and it too is really recommended (even just for tea like here). xx
