TORONTOWith a nod to its UK-inspired EPOCH Bar & Kitchen, The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto will be starting afternoon tea service this week, beginning today, from 2 to 4 p.m. The menu, curated by specialty restaurant chef Jeff Crump, features a selection of sweet and savoury indulgences inspired by iconic tea pairings from across the pond. 

Guests can expect warm, homemade scones accompanied by lemon curd, strawberry and rose-petal jams as well as lemon cake, apple tart and chocolate fondant. Savoury options include traditional English finger sandwiches such as smoked salmon and crème fraiche, cucumber and herbs and chopped eggs and dill, all served on fresh homemade bread.  

“Afternoon Tea has been an esteemed British tradition for over two centuries,” says Guillaume Benezech, GM at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto. “The Ritz-Carlton properties around the world share the same penchant for creating the perfect tea experience. We are excited to welcome guests to create lasting memories with EPOCH Bar & Kitchen Terrace’s new offering.”

The curated loose-leaf tea collection will feature complex and fragrant varieties with elegant flavours, soothing qualities and healing benefits. Guests can select from a range of white, green, black and herbal-infused options including: Organic Emperor’s Jasmine, Peach Flowering Tea, Organic English Breakfast, Lapsang Souchong and more.
