As it’s currently afternoon tea week what better time to share the experience of my most recent afternoon tea visit? The Early Bird is currently offering afternoon tea as a showcase of their apprentice’s work who is coming to the end of their time. After a friend showed me photos of the afternoon tea I booked as soon as possible as I didn’t want to miss out.
Firstly, we had a choice of Welsh Brew teas to choose from. We went for a green rooibos with orange as we wanted to go for something caffeine free.
Once we had been given our tea the afternoon tea was bought out on a glass cake stand. It’s one of the most impressive looking afternoon teas I’ve been presented with. Hearty sandwiches, the cutest little scones with honey & raspberry butter and salted caramel pretzel brownies were among the treats on offer.
Paullovestea had the vegetarian option which just meant he had some different sandwiches but there was no less thought put into the flavour combinations as can often be the case. I ate as much as I could but as it was so indulgent I had to take some bits home to enjoy with another pot of tea later on.
I’m not sure exactly how long the afternoon tea will be on offer for so I recommend booking as soon as possible. Hopefully it will be something that can continue with future apprentices. It’s £15 per person and worth every penny.
