Spode's Afternoon Tea with a Twist – Afternoon Tea Week
It’s one of our favourite times of the year - Afternoon Tea Week! Scrumptious homemade bakes, perfectly poured tea and the best excuse to spend the afternoon with loved ones.
Afternoon Tea is a Great British tradition, and as Henry James once said;
“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
And we couldn’t agree more. There’s nothing quite like a traditional afternoon tea setting, with dainty cucumber-filled sandwiches, warm scones and a pot of tea. But this Afternoon Tea Week why not add a little twist to your afternoon tea at home for a modern take on high tea? We’ve got some fabulous suggestions we’re sure you’ll love:
Swap the traditional tea for a G&Tea
A spectacular afternoon tea with friends deserves a spectacular tipple. Switch up the traditional tea option for gin, mix with tonic and serve in style from your favourite teapot. Our Spode Gin makes the most delicious cocktail perfect for a gin and tonic afternoon tea. And why stop there? Make it a gin themed afternoon tea with scones served with gin flavoured jam too.
Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea
Serving up afternoon tea to your favourite guy? Give it a twist with savoury snacks that have a little more clout than your average sandwich. Think gourmet sausage rolls, pork pies and mini bagel bites with a range of tasty toppings. Delicious.
Afternoon tea makes for a wonderful occasion for all sorts of celebrations. And is super easy to adapt for larger get-togethers too, making it perfect for this year’s birthday parties at home. Gather your finest crockery, fill with the special guest’s favourite treats and serve up a fabulous mix and match afternoon tea celebration in the garden.
