R Chocolate London Afternoon Tea – The Arbuturian

The R Chocolate London boutique’s a few minutes’ walk from Sloane Square station, but a cold few minutes. When we arrive at the awning on Ebury Street the shopfront doesn’t just look good, it looks like sanctuary.

There are Big Decisions standing between us and all the cake, though. The connections of co-founder Sir Evelyn de Rothschild mean there’s Champagne Barons de Rothschild Brut being served. But you can choose to swap it for Chocolate in a Bottle – a chocolate-infused sparkling wine – which Jethro, in his commitment to the theme, orders. It arrives looking surprisingly pale, a coupe of Champagne-coloured, cocoa-smelling bubbles, and tasting surprisingly lovely – the depth of chocolate without the sweetness.
