This week, as temperatures spiked hotter than Hawaii, Londoners were invited to join Whittard of Chelsea to cool down in their series of Ice-cold Afternoon Tea Parties, which launched to celebrate their new and first-ever refreshing Cold Brew Tea Range.

Visitors have been rescued by Whittard this week, as they were invited to cool off from the 30+ degree heat at exclusive Afternoon Tea Parties held in ice-cold Igloos, hosted at London’s Secret Garden in South Kensington.

All guests were provided with afternoon tea with a ‘cool’ twist – whilst sat in chilly temperatures, they enjoyed Whittard of Chelsea’s Cold Brew from a giant teacup ice sculpture, as well as being treated to a selection of Whittard biscuits, sandwiches and cakes, and prosecco.

Whittard of Chelsea’s Cold Brew is the perfect drink for staying refreshed in the summer heat, with its exotic line-up, which delivers delicious fruity floral flavours including Passionfruit, Mango & Peach, Watermelon, Strawberry & Lime, Blackcurrant and Blueberry, Passionfruit, and Pink Grapefruit. Their Cold Brew is also natural, caffeine-free and specially formulated for infusing quickly in cold water – perfect for cooling down on a hot summer’s day.
