The Great British Summer is here, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a quintessentially British tradition – afternoon tea on the lawns.
From just £27.00 per person you will be able to enjoy a full English afternoon tea served in our Library or Drawing Room overlooking the gardens, or if it’s fine weather on the terrace.
We have teamed up with Gilliards of Bath to offer a special Darjeeling treat:
Darjeeling First Flush
Plucked from the very first early morning leaves of spring, this rare, much-awaited Tippy First Flush tea offers a classic gentle aroma and a subtle sweet leafiness on the palate.
Winner, Taste of the West Gold award, 2016
Darjeeling Second Flush
Second flush teas are picked during the summer months when the tea plants have grown back more vigorous. Deepali has selected this high-grown Second Flush with a well-rounded flavour- full-bodied yet delicately floral on the nose.
Winner, Taste of the West Silver award, 2015.
This White Tea, semi-fermented and pan-fried, is selected by Deepali from bushes growing above 4,000 feet; it has a delicacy on the nose that balances the light dryness on the palate, and the leafy after-taste lives long in the mouth. Comprising only the buds and youngest leaves and known for its detoxifying and anti-oxidant properties, it is an ideal ‘any time of day’ drink.
Available Monday to Saturday 2.30pm – 5.00pm and Sunday 3.00pm and 5.00pm.
