Leave it to the Hemsley sisters to give traditional high tea a totally modern, healthy spin. These adorable Brits have taken London’s exploding wellness scene by storm with two planty cookbooks — The Art of Eating Well and Good + Simple and last years’ launch of their cafe inside Selfridges department store, where they’ve just begun offering a very Hemsley-esque high tea daily.

Melissa and Jasmine’s healthy high tea menu swaps the usual sugary cakes and mayo-slathered mini sandwiches for whole food, nutrient-dense deliciousness we’ve come to expect from them: think quinoa scones with raspberry chia jam, mini flaxseed rolls (recipe here!) with truffle scrambled eggs, and an assortment of mouthwatering sweets that are all grain, gluten and refined sugar-free!

We got a glimpse of the brand new menu and are drooling over everything on it:
