Tea is center stage at Sketch, and they go to great lengths to choose a selection of 27 varieties that span the world’s finest leaves and unique aromas. Choices range from full-bodied blacks to delicate Himalayan whites, fruity tisanes, Ceylonese varieties with floral notes, and Iranian organic rosebud infusions. Royal Flush, an excellent strong black tea from Sri Lanka, pairs well with milk, while Li Shan, a lovely translucent Taiwanese oolong, is best enjoyed without additions. Glasses of Champagne are also served for an additional cost.

The dress code is “art smart,” as they like for guests to dress with character and style, but they do kindly request, “No shorts, please!”

Sketch, as its name implies, is a work in progress, continually evolving with artistic changes, yet making for a deliciously different afternoon-tea experience for visitors London-bound.
