Pop those champagne corks and bring out your finest brews as Afternoon Tea Week returns for a week of teas, tastings and temptation from 10-16th August.
What and Why.../
The 2015 edition of Afternoon Tea Week will be the biggest yet, with a roster of exclusive events planned for a nationwide celebration of Britain's favourite teatime tradition this August. A packed summer schedule includes themed menus, talks, and tastings as well as exclusive offers in hotels, restaurants and tearooms across the country as Britain comes together to celebrate our most indulgent epicurean heritage.
With a massive array of activities taking place there's something to interest everyone, be it Champagne Tasting at the Radisson Blu Edwardian The Berkshire or attending the Bakewell Baking Festival.
One of our favourite picks is the Historical Afternoon Tea at Dennis Severs' House. Kerstin Rodgers, aka Ms Marmite Lover, is hosting the event that's inspired by the beautiful history of this East London time capsule. Kerstin will be sourcing recipes from historic cookbooks to create this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Afternoon Tea as the Georgians would have – feel free to dress up Georgian style if you like!
Afternoon tea week take pace between the 10th-16th August.
The tea week will be taking place all over London so for information on events in your area checkout www.afternoonteaweek.com
