This month The Lowry Hotel launched a limited edition afternoon tea, beginning with the theme of Pride. The afternoon tea incldes some almost too good to eat glitter and rainbow coloured cakes.
For every Pride Tea sold, The Lowry will donate £1 to the Manchester Pride Charity. This charity organises the 'Big Weekend' held this bank holiday! Pride Tea is served from 1st to 31st August at The River Restuarnt at the Lowry Hotel.
ChrisWallis from Northern Soul Food Review was at The Lowry Hotel the day the Afternoon Tea lauched and has this to say about James Green and Tea From The Manor.
"His teas are delicious. We were given a box of different teas to nose which included inter alia an Earl Grey that knocked my socks off, a powerful green mint and The Lowry’s own blend." Read the full review here
The interesting history of the origin of the company sparked the interest of The Lowry Hotel’s General Manager Adrian Ellis, who after visiting the tea tasting room in Denton resulted in a flourishing collaboration between the two.
James said: “Tea is central to a life of soldiering on in good times and in times of conflict, which gave me the drive and passion to set up Tea from the Manor.
“When Adrian visited our tea room, we couldn’t think of a more perfect fit than The Lowry Hotel as they are well known for supporting local suppliers. It’s an honour and privilege to start to work in partnership with such an iconic hotel, working alongside The Lowry Hotel team can only add to the success of Tea from the Manor.”
As well as Tea from the Manor introducing an exquisite range of teas into the River Bar and Restaurant to compliment the bespoke range of limited-edition afternoon teas, The Lowry Hotel and Tea from The Manor are in talks to open a tea emporium within the hotel, making it one of the first hotels in Manchester to do so.
