National Afternoon Tea Week: Essentials For Your Tea Party
Did you know that there’s such thing as National Afternoon Tea Week?
Even if you didn’t, you do now - and it’s 14th - 20th August! And at Nisa, there’s nothing we love more than celebrating any food-related occasion...
Duly, here’s our guide to holding the perfect afternoon tea party. You won’t miss a thing!
The centerpiece of any afternoon tea...
Let’s not kid ourselves - there’s no afternoon tea without it. Luckily, our Heritage teabags are guaranteed to produce a delightful brew. And if tea’s not your cup of tea, our Heritage Colombian coffee will suit you down to the ground.
Ground. Coffee grounds. Heh.
If you’re feeling daring, mix it up with some different teas - perhaps vanilla, green, lemon or jasmine? There’s almost no end to the possibilities for tea fanatics.
How to pronounce it… Scone as in ‘cone’ or scone as in ‘con’? Almost as controversial as ‘Nice-er’ or ‘Nee-sa’...
Let’s just put the debate aside and all agree on one thing - how irresistible our sultana scones are (and how necessary they are for any serious afternoon tea). Just don’t skimp on the clotted cream and jam…
Anything good enough to grace the plate of Queen Victoria must be fit for a tea party.
And make sure it tastes fit for royalty - by following our super-simple, Heritage-inspired recipe. Mmm, soft creamy sponge and a good brew. We’re sold.
Heritage Clotted Cream and Jam
Perfect for slotting onto a scone.
You also can’t go wrong by adding a bit of bubbly for any guests who desire it… why not check out what’s on offer at your local Nisa? Or better yet, have a go at creating some of our Champagne Cocktails?
There you have it - all bases covered. Now set forth and celebrate National Afternoon Tea in true style.
Jam or cream first? Let us know!
