Tea for two!
A gold star and congratulations to our Tea Masters...
Having been awarded the most prestigious title in tea production, education, cultivation and tasting - The Ronnefeldt TeaMaster® Gold - our Lounges Manager, Claire Tylcoat and Lounge Waiter Daven Abrahams are now equipped with an even greater love, knowledge and understanding of tea and tea culture and cannot wait to deliver a first class tea experience to our Lounges guests.
Claire and Daven are among just 250 Ronnefeldt trained TeaMasters® working in the most prestigious hotels across the world, Claire and Daven are the only two people to hold the coveted TeaMasters® Gold accreditation in any hotel throughout the UK . During their recent training, Claire and Daven visited various Sri Lanka tea plantations, experiencing the complete production and processing of the teas which saw them both picking, tasting and completing a final written exam before being presented with their award.
Passing with flying colours, both Claire and Daven will bring their new experience to our ever-popular afternoon tea offering at The Grove with a series of tea master classes and tasting sessions as well as crafting a selection of tea infused cocktails.
Ronnefeldt Teas are produced exclusively to the traditional orthodox methods, meaning most of the work is done by hand guaranteeing the highest possible quality and as such, Ronnefeldt has been The Grove's afternoon tea of choice for 10 years.
