For Mother’s Day, I treated my mum to afternoon tea at a quant little hotel near where we live; I had never been to afternoon tea before but we were both excited.
Once we arrived at the hotel, we were led into the dining room where we were greeted with the most gorgeous cups and saucers, which embarrassing as it may sound, excited me a lot; they were so pretty! We were asked what drink we wanted so mum opted for a pot of tea and of course I went for coffee.
Then came the most exciting part; the food. The bottom layer of the stand had the cutest little sandwich’s on, which ranged from cheese and pickle to salmon and cream cheese; these were also accompanied with little vegetable crisps. The next layer up was cakes and pastries which consisted of little fruit cups and millionaires shortbread with some mousse. The top layer was definitely my favourite one because it had the scones on (I’m hungry just thinking about them) they were still a little bit warm in the middle so when you added the jam and cream, they just soaked right in, they were, without doubt, the best scones I have ever had. It was such a lovely day with mum and now I can’t wait to go for afternoon tea again.
Have you ever been to afternoon tea?
