We've had vegan burgers, vegan fish and chips and vegan cocktails, so it was only a matter of time before London started seeing vegan afternoon teas on offer. One of the first we've heard of is from US import by CHLOE, which is launching their afternoon tea next week.
As you'd expect from any trad tea set, there'll be teeny sandwiches including 'tuna' salad, 'egg' salad and smoked 'salmon' with cream cheese. That 'salmon', for example, will be made by marinating tomato fillets in olive oil, seaweed and smoked chipotle.
Cakes will include Rainbow Star Scones with strawberry jam and coconut whipped cream and a Victoria Sponge Bar with jam, buttercream and sprinkles. All of those will be made with special flours and are egg and butter-free.
The tea comes with a selection of Brockley Breakfast, Earl Grey, Jade Tips or Peppermint tea from Good and Proper Tea or you can add a glass of fizz too.
