Beck at Brown’s AperiTEAvo Menu
Tea drinking, a signature British pastime has been enjoyed with acute etiquette for more than 300 years. Building on the rich history of Brown’s Hotel and celebrating this quintessential 300 age-old custom, Beck at Brown’s has collaborated with Lalani & Co to introduce a contemporary twist on Britain’s renowned love for tea.
The new AperiTEAvo menu features fine tea and tea-infused cocktails alongside a selection of delectable dishes. Lalani & Co’s exclusive single batch teas are handpicked and harvested at 6000ft in Jun Chiyabari Garden, Nepal to leaves milled by stone in Japan. Guests are invited to enjoy the single batches alone or theatrically incorporated into refined cocktails including Mr Brown’s Old Fashioned, a classic reinvented, with Kyoto Oolong infused Cognac Frapin or the Nitro-green cocktail, reflecting the vibrancy of the green tea field landscape in Japan, a velvety cocktail infused with Nitro, Matcha and Dry Vermouth, served smooth, over ice.
Each drink is intricately paired with an AperiTEAvo, designed by Executive Head Chef Heros De Agostinis and his inspirational team; each dish is created using seasonal ingredients to complement the distinctive flavour of the tea ensuring a unique gastronomic experience. The three-course menu (also available in a vegetarian option) is designed to ignite taste buds and stimulate senses; the AperiTEAvo menu features the following dishes:
