This unique afternoon tea experience is actually the first of its kind in the UK, yet Dilmah is a legendary name in tea and is even the brand of choice on Emirates flights (now there’s kudos for you). It also has chic tea lounges in Dubai, Sri Lanka and Andorra, and now Dilmah has come to Glasgow to offer a truly luxurious afternoon tea experience.
This means that, as well as being served a range of sandwiches and sweet treats, you will be able to choose from a huge selection of Dilmah designer gourmet teas. These will most likely include Ceylon Silver Tips, Original Earl Grey and Rose with French Vanilla.
As well as tucking into the delicious afternoon tea, guests on this deal can enjoy a relaxation session in the Hilton’s state of the art leisure facilities.
These include a whirlpool, 15m indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room.
Hilton’s afternoon tea has attracted some rave reviews on TripAdvisor. Here’s what some guests had to say (edited for length):
“It was truly outstanding. There was a cake stand firstly with sandwiches, wraps and sausage rolls between 2. One of us asked for gluten free and got a small cup of soup too. Next came a plate full of scones, with optional toppings of butter, jam and lemon curd. Lastly, although we were quite full by now, we were given a large plate with approx 8 miniature desserts, including an eclair, fruit tart, choc mouse, cheesecake. These were small but they were all very rich, and I’m not sure we could have managed any more. Our server, Lazaros, was excellent, and we had prosecco as well as a variety of teas. All in, it was a lovely afternoon tea, and I’d highly recommend it.”
“My friend and I got a great deal on spa access and afternoon tea at Dilmah Tea Lounge. The afternoon tea was awesome with a brilliant selection of high quality sandwiches, scones and cakes. It was loads of food. They had loads of speciality teas. I liked the Italian Almond. The service was excellent and Lazaros and Argiro were very friendly and helpful.”
