Pearl Lemon Event Catering London

According to a 2019 survey, 75% of Brits drink at least one cup of tea every day, and one in ten of us drinks six or more. 

This craze over the drink will undoubtedly support your idea of including an afternoon tea in your event if you have plans on having one! And mind you, there’s much more to it than the trend.

By adjusting your event to the theme, you can spare yourself a respectable amount of money and a thousand hassles.

This is because, with tea catering, everything is simplified and planned accordingly with tea traditions in mind. Everything will be settled in your plans, including cuisine, flowers, décor, and music. 

What’s more exciting is that your event can be memorable if you plan it carefully and manage your time well.

Suppose you are planning to surprise a loved one by organising an afternoon tea party served on beautiful vintage cutlery or celebrating a well-lived life in Leeds Castle, Dreamland Margate, or Hever Castle & Gardens, afternoon tea catering in Kent would probably be the most suitable theme for you.

And when you decide that you want that, Pearl Lemon Catering can cater for all your afternoon tea needs.

The Custom Of Afternoon Tea

Even while the classic afternoon tea has undergone a lot of new “twists” throughout the years, several essential elements remain unchanged.

For instance, here are the customs we still implement:

  • Preferred choice of tea being poured straight from fine teapots into exquisite china cups with saucers;
  • A variety of miniature, delectable cakes, pastries, or other sweets;
  • Lightly filled sandwiches that you can split into fingers or triangle jam-and-cream-topped scones;
  • Sandwiches must have a thin layer of butter on the bread, and;
  • Every snack possible is placed on a multi-tiered stand with thin chinaware.

If you’ve watched Bridgerton or gone to formal tea parties, you’ll understand what we mean.

Afternoon Tea That Helps Your Palate & Health

Everyone agrees that freshly brewed tea served right from the pot in china cups during afternoon tea tastes the best, but why is tea so good?

The tea leaf’s soluble portion gives it its distinct flavour and contains all the incredible health advantages. 

The majority is composed of polyphenols, known as tannins or catechins by most people. Amino acids (theanine), caffeine, and minerals are essential next. 

Tannins are a subset of antioxidants and are more abundant in green and white teas than in black tea since the latter’s oxidation lowers its catechin level.

You probably know that tea is good for your health, but now you know precisely why.

Afternoon Tea Varieties

Want to know the different options we have for your tea party? Well, take a look below

Traditional Tea

The typical afternoon tea meal, which includes tea, sandwiches, scones, and traditional British pastries like Victoria sponge and fruit cake, is the most popular in the UK.

But over time, Prosecco afternoon teas, gin afternoon teas, and even rum afternoon teas have become increasingly fashionable.

A popular late lunch treat is Italian afternoon tea, which includes antipasti, focaccia, and cannoli in addition to the traditional scones.

If you truly have a sweet craving, even a chocolate-themed afternoon tea might be just for you.

Cream Tea

Afternoon tea is different from cream tea.

Typically, scones with clotted cream and jam are served with freshly made tea or, for those who prefer caffeine– we serve coffee.

Even if it doesn’t have sandwiches or other sweet pastries and cakes, it is still a delightful afternoon treat.

High Tea

High tea is significantly different from cream and conventional afternoon tea.

After a long day of labour, this was a large, satisfying supper of meat, fish, pies, bread, and vegetables eaten in working-class homes around 5 o’clock.

The traditional afternoon tea, a social event for the aristocracy and upper classes, is nothing like high tea.

We have expertise in accommodating various demands, themes, and preferences. When it comes to the appearance and flavour of our sweet and savoury delicacies, there is nothing we like more than a creative challenge.

We are pleased to accommodate vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free food requests for all or part of your order because we also cater to alternative dietary needs or preferences

We can modify these menus to meet your specific needs and in any quantity you choose. All you have to do is get in touch with us.
