Looking for a lovely location to enjoy afternoon tea in Zurich? How about the beautiful Widder Hotel in Rennweg, right in the heart of the old town? After walking across the cobbled streets, you can relax and take tea in the Erker Stübli of the Widder Bar and Kitchen. It’s a lovely cosy room in this very sophisticated and historic building.

This year, The Hotel Widder has introduced a new concept for their Afternoon Tea – the Bento Box. And my, how pretty it looks! Even before you taste a morsel, you know this is going to be good.

What’s even better is that they have thought of everything – you get two boxes, a sweet and a savoury. The number of flavours you get to taste whilst enjoying this delicious interlude is amazing! You can also choose from a selection of 12 different Betjeman & Barton teas and each is presented to you in a cute little teapot. I went for the “Jasmin Chung Hao”, a green tea with perfumed jasmine petals, and Carmen chose the “C’est Un Jour de Fête” tea which is a black China tea with cinnamon, pepper, orange and vanilla and both were delicious.

Once the two Bento Boxes arrived we spent a while just admiring their beauty – and of course taking photos for you, dear reader 🙂 – before we embarked on tasting their exquisite contents. We were not disappointed.

Not only was the presentation stunning – but the flavours were out of this world. It’s such an unusual experience, and also, I can say, a meal in itself. Just make sure you don’t have too much for lunch when you’re coming here!

The menu included everything from Prawn Dogs to Matcha Profiteroles and lots more besides.

What made the afternoon event more special is that to accompany the Afternoon Tea we enjoyed a glass of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs (which just happens to be my favourite champagne!). A marriage made in heaven. 🙂
