As common as it is for hot beverages like tea and coffee to be served during a flight, Virgin Atlantic is looking to transform the act of enjoying tea on a plane a more comforting ritual.

Virgin Atlantic's new afternoon tea service is set to give passengers a taste of British tradition before they even set foot in the country. In collaboration with Master Pâtissier Eric Lanlard, Virgin Atlantic will be offering the service at its London Heathrow Clubhouse, along with cakes, sandwiches and other light refreshments.

The in-flight afternoon tea service menu for passengers in economy, first class and premium seats offers a smaller sampling of the offerings from the London Heathrow Clubhouse, including bite-sized macarons, sandwiches and scones.
