Prêt-à-Portea at The Berkeley

It's been a few years since our family enjoyed the legendary afternoon tea at The Berkeley Knightsbridge.

Prêt-à-Portea Collection S/S 2013

Tea with Karl & Naomi

I love these tea bags in all their glorious kitsch. Give them as hostess gifts,  humor your British mates... or simply steep them for your own amusement. They're back in stock at Fred Flare, but who knows for how long? Get them while they last!
