To mark Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday, Michelin starred Outlaw's at The Capital will be serving a month long Royal Afternoon Tea created by two great British Chefs, Nathan Outlaw and Will Torrent. Nathan and Will have put together an exciting menu of Great British Afternoon Tea favourites, featuring recipes from Will Torrent’s latest best selling book, Afternoon Tea at Home, as well as exclusive recipes created collaboratively at The Capital by Nathan and Will. The Capital Royal Tea will be available for the entire month of June, where Will will be taking a Royal Residency at The Capital as a guest chef alongside Outlaw’s at The Capital’s Head Chef, Tom Brown.

Will, who is the pâtisserie and chocolate consultant to Waitrose has already turned his hand to royal events, having helped design the Diamond Jubilee Picnic Hamper alongside Waitrose, Heston Blumenthal and Royal Chef Mark Flanagan. He will be bringing his passion for baking, chocolate, and all things sweet to make Afternoon Tea at The Capital during his Royal Residency extra special in honour of the Queen’s birthday celebrations.

The menu plays on Will and Nathan’s love for Great British Food and firm afternoon tea favourites with a few twists along the way. The menu will include Earl Grey Crowns, which have been specially created by Will to feature The Queen’s preferred tea, strawberry and Champagne tartlets decorated will gold leaf detail, and smoked salmon on crumpets. On Sundays the cake trolley will add an additional treat, such as their version of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s chocolate biscuit Wedding Cake, or an Elizabeth Sponge cake; a take on the classic Victoria sponge with notes of lavender and lemon. Fiona Cairns, Royal Cake Maker has enthused ‘Will is a master of his craft, his recipes are amazing and I’m a huge fan!’

Nathan Outlaw has said of the collaboration: ‘We loved the creativity of Will Torrent’s bakes, and this menu has been a lot of fun to put together. We can’t wait to share our Best of British Tea, and toast the Queen’s milestone birthday!’  Will adds: ‘I can't think of anything more quintessentially British than Afternoon Tea to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen's 90th Birthday. It’s amazing to be working with Nathan Outlaw at The Capital in honour of this Great British occasion- what a way to celebrate!"

The Royal Residency Afternoon Tea will be available daily 2-5.30pm throughout the month of June, with private rooms available for larger groups. Afternoon Tea is priced at £29.50 per person, or £39.50 paired with a glass of Champagne or even a Dubonnet and Gin, a royal favourite.

Black Tea

Black Tea

Black Tea is one of four main types of tea. It accounts for over 90% of all tea sold in the west, and unlike green tea which loses its flavour within a year, black tea retains its flavour for several years. Black tea is more oxidized than Oolong, green and white tea and is generally the strongest type of tea.
