They've recently concocted six new blends for the Lebanese selection, made with Lebanese-grown herbs, spices and flowers. Tea lovers sitting down for afternoon tea can enjoy a selection of little cakes and savory treats made fresh on-site, which include both traditional English options and a few Lebanese-inspired additions.The salon also offers master classes and tasting sessions, seeking to educate people about various types of tea and preparation methods.
