A staple in afternoon tea is of course the tea! We’ve got several different teas to choose from. Why not try the Taylor of Harrogate Pure Assam Tea or you could even add one of our many coffees for those coffee enthusiasts out there. Next, it's time to look for something that compliments your chosen tea and coffees.

Go traditional and include delectable biscuits, including Border Strawberry Drizzle Melts or even the classic Walkers Shortbread Fingers. Of course, jam is one of the fundamental elements to afternoon tea and our range from Cottage Delight, including their strawberry extra jam, is always a popular choice.
