A Spot of Afternoon Tea Anyone?

Scones. Check. Crustless Finger Sandwiches. Check. Delicate Pastries. Check. It can only mean one thing….. Afternoon Tea.

A time where you can get together around a smorgasbord of delectable delights, sip on tea (pinkies at the ready) and or champagne if you are feeling in the mood for a tipple. As far as themed weeks go Afternoon Tea week has got to be up there on the favourite list. 

Monday marked the start of this quintessentially British week and here are some Afternoon Tea ideas for you. Prepare yourself because who knew there were so many varieties, it’s not just about your scones and sarnies any more!

    Y’know, come to think of it… I’ve never had an Afternoon Tea. It’s cute an’ all, but it’s always seemed a little bit finicky and fussy for me. Dainty foods aren’t quite my style – which is perhaps why the Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea appeals to me out of this list. It’s chunky and substantial! I like it.
