The Quarterly Afternoon Tea Club at Hampton Court Flower Show

The Quarterly Afternoon Tea Club has been quietly munching through delicious afternoon teas throughout the past year without posting any reviews. This does not mean that excellent teas have not been experienced, we have simply fallen out of the habit of reviewing them.

However, on Saturday we had a really delicious afternoon tea at the Hampton Court Flower Show, served in the exceedingly hot but delightful surroundings of the show. Top marks to Cunard, who had concocted a compact afternoon tea for two at £24, which we enjoyed in the shade of a tre outside the Tea Palace tent. Expecting to be underwhelmed we were delighted, first with the sandwiches (so important to the overall experience) which were all very tasty, apart from one which was strangely empty... but which we swiftly converted into a cream and jam sandwich so no harm was done. Secondly with the perfect scones served with a light clotted cream and strawberry jam, followed by a selection of delicious little cakes. Served on a darling little three-tier stand and china crockery, with Twinings breakfast tea. I saw people's eyes widen as I walked past with the tray towards our little table...
