"In recent years High Tea has become a byword for exquisite afternoon tea," and so here at Just Tickled Pink we would like to share some information with you.
The first recorded arrival of tea in England was when Catherine de Braganze brought chests of it in her dowry for her marriage to Charles II in 1663. Charles and Catherine's affinity for tea quickly popularised it amongst the upper classes and the British tea trade began in earnest in the 1670s, thanks to the British East India Company. Though tea was initially limited to the upper classes, it gradually spread to even the lower classes.
The High Tea Menu
High Tea at Just Tickled Pink commences with our own special pink mocktail on arrival, a hot frittata or pastry, followed by tiers of assorted yesteryear sandwiches and cupcakes, sweets, slices, chocolates and scones with jam and cream, all served with traditional afternoon tea.
Our delicate light tea sandwiches are prepared in advance so that the exquisite flavours become enhanced. As per the "Ritz" of London we cover all our sandwiches with wax paper & then a damp towel and refrigerate for several hours prior to your reservation.
