Our free-draw to win afternoon tea for two at the chic and stylish ‘Rosebery Tea Salon’ located in The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Hyde Park was won by Sally Barfoot.
Earlier this year the chic and stylish Rosebery Tea Salon, located in The Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Hyde Park opened its doors. Working with the passionate team at The Rosebery, The East India Company’s tea master Lalith, crafted 3 incredibly special blends – Morning Blend, Director’s Reserve and Afternoon Blend, all of which are available to purchase online.
To celebrate this unique collaboration, we hosted a free-draw with the prize being afternoon tea at The Rosebery. When we informed Sally that she’d won the prize her response was, “Wow that is brilliant, I am so pleased.”
Sally shared the prize with her mother and together they were able to celebrate her mother’s 60th birthday, setting the afternoon off on the perfect note!
Sally was kind enough to send in some photos from her Rosebery experience, along with the following comment:
“I just wanted to say how much my mother and I enjoyed the afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental… With the added surprise of them bringing out a birthday cake and candle for her, that was a really nice touch”
Thanks to The Rosesbery Tea Salon for hosting a special afternoon for Sally and her mother. Below is a little more information about the unique blend of teas we created for The Rosebery. We hope you’ll be tempted to try them soon!
Just as The Company’s tea clippers raced back with the best teas of the season, our Tea Master has personally selected teas from some of the finest tea estates to create an unrivalled tea library with rare teas and bespoke blends. These fine teas are also available exclusively online, in our stores and at the Mandarin Oriental.

A bright, delicate Second Flush picked exclusively from The East India Company’s private reserve in Darjeeling’s Namring Estate. This hand-selected tea captures the nuances of Darjeeling’s best teas. With an abundance of silver tippy leaf, it produces a medium-bodied cup with a slightly darker muscatel flavour.Shop Mandarin Darjeeling Second Flush
This blend has been created to linger on the palate as an ideal afternoon pick-me-up. Uniquely, two high-grown single estate teas from very different regions – Orange Pekoe from Sri Lanka and the Golden Monkey leaf from China combine for a soft, full, gentle yet textured profile.
