Afternoon Tea at Aura Rosa, Walthamstow

On Sunday afternoon I went out for afternoon tea for a friend's big birthday. We went to Aura Rosa in Walthamstow and had a fantastic tea.

We started with three different kinds of empanadas - chorizo and potato, pulled pork and pineapple and pesto, potato and olive. They were served warm and were absolutely delicious. As I don't drink tea or coffee I had a plum and pear cordial.

We were then served a little almond milk and cinnamon drink.

Followed by 2 raisin scones with clotted cream and jam.

Then a small sorbet.

Then came the cakes; raspberry macaron, a marshmallow, mango creme brulee, green tea and strawberry tart, mini meringues, a mini tres leches cake and a rich dark chocolate mousse.

Oh my goodness this was good. The empanadas were lovely and flaky and the flavours were distinct. The scones were lovely, served warm and the cakes were fab, that chocolate mousse is seriously to die for. It was really good to have a slightly untraditional afternoon tea, without sandwiches and slices of cake. This was more inventive and just oh so delicious.

  1. Great to see they're doing well in their own premises now. I must make a trip up that end of Hoe Street to visit soon!
