Afternoon Tea Gift Vouchers

Did you know that Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner.

So why not treat someone special to an Afternoon Tea by purchasing one of our gift vouchers and make them feel like royalty. Choose from our Traditional or Sparkling Afternoon Tea.
