Afternoon tea is one of the UK’s favourite traditions and now has an entire week devoted to its celebration! We just love the combination of savoury and sweet treats, accompanied by some of the 165 million cups of tea we drink each day in the UK.
Afternoon Tea Week starts in the UK on 14th August when hotels, tea rooms and restaurants will be running special events and offering exclusive discounts, up and down the country. St. Dalfour preserves are the perfect accompaniment when it comes to the British passion for an afternoon tea, so why not host your own afternoon tea? St. Dalfour has some great recipes to make it a special occasion.
We have the perfect Scone recipe to get you started and of course the perfect St. Dalfour preserves to go with them, whether you like the traditional Strawberry or prefer Raspberry or perhaps even Blackcurrant. With so many flavours to choose from – all 100% from fruit and no artificial flavouring, preservatives or colourings – you are spoilt for choice.
So, during Afternoon Tea Week, invite your friends and family over for sandwiches, scones and cake all washed down with a lovely cup of tea. You could even turn it into a charitable event by asking guests for an entry donation that will go to a favourite charity?
Happy Afternoon Tea Week with St. Dalfour!
“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony
known as afternoon tea.”
