    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:

    The Cream Tea

    two warm quinoa scones
    raspberry chia jam and clotted cream
    pot of tea from The Rare Tea Company
    a glass of Zero Dosage NV Ayala Champagne

    The Afternoon Tea

    mini flaxseed roll
    avocado, lime and smoked salmon
