When you were a child you used to eat cakes and chocolate around 5pm. To be skinny and beautiful, from your twenties you left behind you this habit. And you avoid Pierre Hermé shops in Paris in order not to be tempted. And you are totally right, you cannot wear Isabel Marrant and eat macaroons, you need to choose.
But when it's holidays things are totally different.
When you are in a foreign country you have to respect the local habits.
Tea at five is a London must do. And because you don't like scones, you decide to be patriotic and enjoy Pierre Hermé pastries for once, and you know the risk of addiction is high but this special tea time is available only in London at the Saint James Sofitel, so the danger is far away from your place !
You seat at a round table, enjoy the retry chic look of the restaurant The Balcon and have a big dilemma : Hot chocolate or Ispahan tea , yes just like his famous cake? Impossible to decide… You take both.
And between the "Quatre heures" with bioche, pâte à trainer, sables and moelleux and the "Mogador" brioche, Mogador jam, chocolates, Mogador macarons, and Inifinment chocolate macaron, you take the most regressive, "Quatre heure" the new tea time in London.
