This summer, you can drink tea on London's puffy clouds!

I admit the description is a bit of an exaggeration, but the truth is that a new dining event is combining one of London's most beloved afternoon teas with spectacular views from the top of western Europe's tallest building, to create an experience that is almost heavenly.

Fortnum & Mason, the iconic 308-year-old home of fine food and gifts, is partnering with The Shard to offer Sky-High Tea experiences.

From June 23 ~ September 8, 12 ~ 6pm, guests can enjoy the F&M picnic ‘Hamperlings’, which will be filled with classic finger sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, a miniature jar of raspberry jam, and their signature Royal Blend tea. Champagne can also be added for an extra charge.

Each Sky-High tea ticket for 2 people costs £85, and only 40 tickets will be made available each day.

For those who don't wish to pin their afternoon experience on the unpredictable British weather, F&M also offers The View from The Shard tickets with Afternoon Tea at their Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon in Piccadilly. The cost of the indoor afternoon tea for 2 people is £130. 

I still haven't made it to the top of The Shard (*blush*), but maybe this is the perfect location... and opportunity... for a birthday celebration!

這個夏天,你也可以坐在倫敦的雲端喝下午茶!

這形容是有點誇張,事實是這樣的... 英國老牌精品百貨 Fortnum & Mason 與西歐最高的建築「摘星塔」(The Shard又稱碎片大廈)合作,特別推出限量版的 Sky-High Tea 經驗,讓顧客能在大樓最頂端的開放式天台一邊享用 F&M 的下午茶野餐,一邊欣賞倫敦全景。

這個方案時間不長,從 6月23日~ 9月8日,下午 12 ~ 6 點,每天限量40張入場卷。一張兩人的票價是 85 英鎊,包括了手指三明治,英式鬆餅,濃縮奶油,果醬,當然還有 F&M 有名的皇家紅茶。也可以外加香檳,票價會貴一點。

當然,若不想依賴倫敦變幻莫測的天氣,你也可以選擇另一個方案:參觀摘星塔,然後回到皮卡迪利大街上的 F&M 本店,在它的「鑽禧茶沙龍」享用全套的正統英國下午茶。這個方案的定價較高,兩人要 130 英鎊。
