Singapore Airlines has launched a new English Tea service for business and first class passengers on selected flights between London and Singapore.
The carrier says that the new option – which is being offered on flights SQ317 (departing London at 1055) and SQ305 (leaving Heathrow at 1515) – is being launched in response to “the resurgence in demand for the time-honoured and quintessential Afternoon Tea”.
The English Tea service includes open cucumber and smoked salmon sandwiches (served in the traditional finger style without crusts), warmed currant scones with clotted cream and jam, and petit fours, including a ‘Milk Chocolate Tear’ and a fresh berry fruit tart.
Passengers will also be offered the No.16 Afternoon Tea and No.42 Earl Grey tea blends from Harrods.
British Airways offers an Afternoon Tea inspired by the Dorchester to its First passengers on selected flights, and has recently unveiled its own signature tea blend in partnership with Twinings (see online news January 29).
