Celebrate it in style with the first of their limited edition afternoon teas
THE Lowry Hotel has long been one of the city's go-to places for afternoon tea. As of August, it is extending its Afternoon Tea hours to meet surging demand. And it will be launching a themed limited-edition Afternoon Tea each month, starting with a Pride Tea to celebrate Manchester's prominent and influential LGBT+ community.
For every Pride Tea sold in August, they'll donate £1 to the Manchester Pride charity, who will be holding their 'Big Weekend' event over the August bank holiday.
They're promising rainbows, glitter and heavenly flavours, alongside the classic components of their afternoon teas. You'll be served gourmet sandwiches, traditional scones with clotted cream, and some very photogenic cakes, including the rainbow cake pictured.
The loose leaf tea is supplied by Manchester Tea merchant, James Green of Tea from the Manor, which chooses only the top three grades from the finest whole leaf and flower teas. Guests can upgrade to include prosecco or a cocktail if they like.
The Pride Tea costs £29.50 per person and is available from 1-31 August at The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel.
