Afternoon Tea with Betty’s Tea & Scones Gift Selection

I don’t know about you, but I think there’s nothing better than a special afternoon tea to mark an occasion. Afternoon Tea is a tea-related ritual, introduced in Britain in the early 1840s. It evolved as a mini meal to stem the hunger and anticipation of an evening meal at 8pm.

Afternoon Tea is a meal composed of delicate finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, sweet pastries, tarts and cakes. Interestingly, scones were not a common feature of early Afternoon Tea and were only introduced in the twentieth century.

In Britain today Afternoon Tea is usually enjoyed as an occasional indulgence or to celebrate a special event such as a birthday, bridal shower or baby shower party with a group of friends.

According to OpenTable, bookings for afternoon tea have increased by 54% over the past two years, and it has been found that 20% of the UK population now expect afternoon tea to be a standard offering on the menu.

Bettys is famous for its Afternoon Tea; this is a simple way to gift a Bettys Afternoon Tea experience at home.

Presented in a pretty gift box with designs by Emily Sutton, it comes packed with delicious, buttery scones full of plump sultanas, their classic Tea Room Blend tea, a tasty Yorkshire Tea Loaf, and a jar of Strawberry Preserve – the same flavour that accompanies the Afternoon Tea which is served in their Café Tea Rooms. A classic, quintessentially Bettys hamper.
