Why Do We Love Afternoon Tea?

There’s nothing quite like an Afternoon Tea to really encapsulate the true spirit of Britain but why do we, as Brits, love an afternoon tea so much? Well, over the years, having served thousands of our famous afternoon teas, we’ve come to realise just why so many have fallen in love with this British tradition. Below, you’ll find just some of the reasons why people love an afternoon tea; and if by the end of reading, you start to feel those cravings coming on, fear not, we’ll be right here to book one of our famous Marygeen Manor afternoon tea experiences.

Beautiful Location – Here at Marygreen Manor, our location really does make your experience. Not only does our Manor house date back to Tudor times but we’ve managed to keep some of the original features offering beautiful décor around you. Our Tudors restaurant offers a garden room too that looks out on to our stunningly designed and landscaped gardens. It really is something special to behold and the perfect place to enjoy such a traditional delicacy.

A Different Way To Indulge – When you think of indulging, the vast majority think of a pizza, a plate full of chocolate and sweets or maybe even our favourite bottle of vino but over time, this gets a little monotonous so it’s no wonder that we’re often in search of a new way to indulge ourselves. We deserve it after all! An Afternoon Tea however, isn’t something you tend to enjoy all too often. Being such a rare treat then makes it all the more special. What’s more, when you think of indulging, it’s usually of an evening so what better way to mix things up than with a little afternoon indulgence? Think delicious finger sandwiches, clotted cream and jam with freshly baked scones and of course yummy cakes and sweet, sweet pastries.

A Sociable Way To Eat – Whatever social occasion you have coming up, we guarantee an Afternoon Tea will always put a smile on the face of all who attend. Whether it’s a birthday, a baby shower, an anniversary or even a leaving party, an Afternoon Tea is the perfect choice for the simple fact that it’s so sociable. It’s a great way of bringing people together by sharing fabulous food and of course a glass of fizz if you’re really looking to make it an extra special occasion. Reminisce of memories past, get excited over the future and relax as the food is brought to you.

The Perfect Excuse To Get Dressed Up – Just like the theatre, when it comes to Afternoon Tea, there’s an unwritten rule that tracksuit bottoms will not make the grade. Afternoon is a past time of the gentry and as such, your attire should reflect that making it the perfect excuse to go out and get dressed up, something that some of us don’t often get to do. Get your hair and make-up done, wear your new shoes and enjoy yourself.

An Excuse To Drink Prosecco – While Prosecco before midday has gathered quite the stigma, a prosecco at lunch time has never been more appropriate, especially when it’s accompanied by an Afternoon Tea here at Marygreen Manor. After all, what compliments a scone with clotted cream and jam more than a glass of fizz?
