For the month a head we have chosen three teas from single estates that will enhance the flavours of your afternoon tea.
Silver Tips - A rarerity among the distinctive white teas. Our Silver Tips are handpicked before sunrise on Brunswick estate, Maskeliya. It takes almost five kilos of hand-picked buds to produce one kilo of this very special tea. There is subtlety woven within the intricacies of this tea, which contains an aromatic scent and a matchless taste that varies with each brew.
Waldemar Roasted Oolong - Grown at 6000ft on Waldemar estate, this Oolong is the perfect autumnal brew. The Deep roasting process produces a rich and autumnal tea with fragrant notes of poached pears with a sweet nutty finish.
Salmon, dill and honey
Cucumber, cream cheese and chive
Pastrami, sauerkraut and Gruyere cheese
Ham, tomato, mayonnaise
Warm homemade scones with strawberry preserve and Dorset clotted cream
Lemon Meringue Tart
To be enjoyed with a selection of teas, coffees and infusions
