The newly debuted Shangri-La Shard hotel takes afternoon tea in London to the clouds

LONDON, 16-5-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — London’s newest luxury hotel has opened its doors and is set to take traditional afternoon tea to a new level. Located within the 72-floor Shard tower at London Bridge, the newly debuted Shangri-La boasts London’s highest champagne bar, highest infinity pool and some of the most stunning views in the capital. Its Asian-themed restaurant, Ting, is now open for an unforgettable afternoon tea experience.

The restaurant, its name derived from the Chinese word for ‘living room’, serves a European menu with a ‘hint of Asian flavouring’, with afternoon tea available in both the traditional English and the alternative Asian-inspired variety. Customers can choose from over 30 different teas as they enjoy the stunning riverside views from the restaurant’s position on the 35th floor. Afternoon tea at Ting is served from 2pm – 6.30pm, Monday – Friday, and from 11.30am – 6.30pm, Saturday and Sunday.

Ting serves luxury food and teas alongside its sister patisserie, Lang, which is located on the ground floor of the hotel. The Shard opened its doors in February 2013 to critical acclaim, making a striking addition to the London skyline. With its location by London Bridge, overlooking the Thames, Ting, and all rooms in the 202-suite Shangri-La afford breathtaking views of the city.
