In support of North Shore City Council Heritage Week. Afternoon tea is a wonderful tradition; this great British custom was started by Anna the Duchess of Bedford in 1830 when she ordered a light meal to stave off her hunger pangs between lunch and dinner. The Victorian era saw afternoon tea established as a British staple. Tea became a time for ladies to gossip and show off their prettiest china.
So step back in time, indulge your tastebuds and experience a time gone by with a glass of French bubbles or a glass of Pim Pom ( Pimms and pomegranate juice) on arrival, crisp white linens, fine china, antique silver, freshly roasted coffee, special teas served with sugar cubes, milk or lemon slices. Dainty sandwiches, sweet treats, gourmet savouries, buttermilk scones with berry jams and crème all served on traditional tiered plates.
