Afternoon Tea Hamper
We’re yet to meet anybody who doesn’t love a good traditional British afternoon tea. When the clock strikes 3pm, it’s important to have the right luxury hamper which will provide all the delicious goods you need for a successful tea. We’ve considered all the essentials, and have come up with a great selection of products, including the perfect tea, homemade cake, shortbread, and tasty preserves and put them into our exclusive Afternoon Tea Hamper which is the ideal treat for home or a special gift for a friend.
We have carefully considered the hamper’s contents so that it contains hand-picked, complementary items that will help bring pleasure to the recipient.
Let’s begin by identifying arguably the most important ingredient of the afternoon tea: Taylors of Harrogate Afternoon Darjeeling Tea. Known as the ‘champagne of tea’, it’s a match made in heaven with cakes and pastries in the afternoon. The tea is picked in the Himalayan foothills and offers a wonderful subtle muscatel flavour. It can be served on its own, or with milk or lemon. Pair your cuppa with Border White Chocolate Strawberry Cookies, delicious all butter cookies with summer ingredients including real dried strawberries, caster sugar, and dairy cream. If you fancy a slice of cake, we’ve included a wonderfully moist Hamptons Homemade Ginger and Walnut Cake, which is made in our kitchens in Stow-on-the-Wold.
We’ve also included all the condiments you need for your afternoon tea. Cottage Delight Strawberry Extra Jam with Champagne is a luxury treat with a high fruit content and Marc de Champagne to add an air of celebration. It goes perfectly with Cottage Delight Clotted Cream, which is rich and creamy. Also included is ‘Great Taste’ award-winning Cottage Delight Lemon Curd, produced in small batches with free range eggs to guarantee maximum flavour. Finally, you’ll find a Tiptree Three Honey Gift Pack, which is a selection of three small pots of honey - choose from Hungarian Acacia, English Blossom, and Spanish Citrus Blossom Honey.
Hamptons offer a range of packaging options. We can pack your hamper in a special gift box or an open wicker basket or a wicker picnic basket or in a plain Hamptons box. Purchases can be made at the shop or delivered. If the latter, we ensure that it is carefully protected with extra outer packaging with consideration for the environment to make sure that your hamper arrives safely. We use a flexible delivery service, operating a weekday 24-hour service to the UK, so you can rest assured that as long as you order in time, your hamper will reach its recipient by the day you specify.
