A tasty festive treat

As December rolls around, Tunbridge Wells families begin filling their journals with festive traditions in preparation for Christmas Day. From visiting Santa to exploring magical leprechaun trails, the ways people choose to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year are endless thanks to all of our seasonal local events.

One activity in particular that we are more than happy to see on the list is Christmas Afternoon Tea. Special during all seasons, this teatime treat is a surefire way to keep your spirits up and have fun with your loved ones while enjoying delicious sweet, salty and festive cheer.

This Christmas, join us for afternoon tea with a delicious seasonal twist.

The quintessential British tradition introduced by the 7th Duchess of Bedford includes freshly cut sandwiches, warm scones with crème fraiche and jam and homemade cakes, perfectly accompanied by hot tea.

But as the festive celebrations draw near, the chefs at One Warwick Park add a touch of Christmas magic to the decadent affair beloved by all, bringing delicious seasonal twists to sweet and savory delights.

With a spread that replaces the traditional egg and cress with honey roasted ham, and sweet macaroons with gooey gingerbread cake, what else goes into the perfect Christmas afternoon tea at OWP? Well, we’re glad you asked…

lots of fizz

Who said afternoon tea should stop at tea and scones? Christmas is all about treating yourself, so no festive gift is complete without a glass of fizzy. Toast with some prosecco or champagne and you’ll be well on your way to kick off the festivities.

Tea, coffee or both!

In the afternoon tea, only the perfect brew will do, especially during the cold winter when any excuse is valid to enjoy a cup. Whether you’re a coffee lover or a tea drinker, both have a firmly secured place in tradition and are the perfect match for scones and cakes.

Tasty favorites with a seasonal twist

Fabulous fillings are a sure way to impress over afternoon tea, but when it comes to Christmas, seasonal sandwiches are the star of the show. Think honey roasted ham with Dijon mustard or brie cheese, bacon and cranberries for the ultimate festive touch.

festive sweets

Aside from salty morsels, nothing beats sweets at Christmas. Classic seasonal flavors like ginger, orange and sherry are the perfect festive touch to enjoy a Christmas afternoon tea.
