Laduree's Rose Cardamom Macaron
To celebrate Covent Garden in Bloom, Ladurée has launched a brand new macaron, Rose-Cardamom. Rose buds and cardamom are infused to create a pale pink
ganache – the perfect balance between florals and spice. Dried rose petals dot the two pastel-coloured shells, adding a further layer of flavour to the crisp exterior.
As one of the very first Parisian pâtissiers to use roses in its delicacies and now, following the tradition of the most prestigious French fashion houses, Ladurée unveils a new collection of rose creations for each season. Ladurée’s new floral collection for spring 2019 comes with a gift box designed in collaboration with artisanal wallpaper specialists A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson.
Whittard's Covent Garden Blend Tea
As a homage to Covent Garden’s blossoming history as a fruit and flower market, Whittard of Chelsea added a glorious cascade of petals, from cornflowers to bright safflowers and marigolds to their signature Covent Garden Blend Tea – it’s a little cup of metropolitan paradise.
Head downstairs to the Whittard of Chelsea Tea Bar for a delicious cuppa or pick up a box to take home with you to remind you of the floral scents of Covent Garden.
