Royal jewellers Asprey are to join forces with London's Langham hotel to launch a celebratory tea in honour of the Queen's Jubilee.

The British firm, who were awarded their first Royal warrant in 1862 by Queen Victoria, have developed a jewelled tea in partnership with the hotel's award-winning pastry chef, Cherish Finden.

The menu, which consists of beautifully crafted delicacies that look too good to scoff, has been inspired by Asprey's jewellery collections past and present.
