The Delights of a Traditional Afternoon Tea


Imagine Afternoon Tea on a winter's afternoon in front of a roaring fire or in your garden on a summer's day.  Book a class with friends and enjoy an array of delicious finger sandwiches, tempting mini desserts, homemade scones, fruit preserves and clotted cream all served with a selection of classic teas and fruit tisanes.
