Afternoon Tea Catering: The Pearl Lemon Café Difference

As the resurgence of the afternoon tea continues, and afternoon tea catering becomes more commonplace, an increasing number of companies are offering it. So why choose Pearl Lemon Café as your afternoon tea caterer? There are many great reasons, but here are some of the most important.

What is Afternoon Tea?

But what is afternoon tea exactly? This British custom originated in the nineteenth century, a time when tea consumption in Europe and Britain was on the rise. The custom of afternoon tea is thought to have been introduced by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford. When individuals traditionally ate two meals a day, an early breakfast and a late dinner, the

Duchess felt hungry and worn out in the middle of the day. Around 4 o’clock, she started having tea and little sandwiches or cakes as a remedy. Even the working classes acquired the concept of afternoon tea after it first emerged as a solo event among the ruling classes.

High Tea Variety

As the tradition is over 200 years old at this point, it’s no surprise that the idea of what high tea should be has evolved. Pearl Lemon Café offers a wide range of afternoon catering options that can, if you want them too, go far beyond a simple tea and cake set-up.

We can provide traditional afternoon teas with a variety of expertly chosen and high quality teas and gourmet cakes and sandwiches, a traditional cream tea, an afternoon tea centered around a theme – thinks fairy teas, Mad Hatter’s tea party, character themed teas and more – or, for businesses, afternoon tea catering that ensures your brand stays top of mind all the time without being overtly over promotional.

Our afternoon tea catering specialists will work with you to create the bespoke tea party of your dreams, for almost any occasion, and ensure that you and your guests enjoy every minute of

Expert Staff: compliment your High Tea party

What good is planning a tea party if you don’t get to enjoy it yourself? As a full service afternoon and high tea catering provider, we offer onsite set up and take down of all the elements of your tea party, attentive friendly and expert serving staff and take care of all the cleanup, so that you can get as much out of your event as your guests do.

International Tea Celebrations

While tea is often thought of as a very British thing, and by extension afternoon tea, most of the world drinks tea – tea is second only to water as the most consumed beverage in the world – and many other cultures have their own versions of tea occasions that can be included as part of our bespoke afternoon tea catering services.

From the greater formality – and heartier fare of a high tea – no, high tea and traditional afternoon tea are not the same thing – to a relaxing and fascinating tea ceremony inspired by the traditional Japanese custom conducted, as it should be, using only the finest ceremonial grade matcha teas or the newer concept of a bubble tea party, our afternoon tea catering services can offer it all.

Bespoke high Tea Catering Services

At our Fulham café, we make a big deal about giving our customers exactly what they want, which means our baristas and servers go out of their way to ensure that beverages are served just how the customer likes it, even if that calls for more effort and ingenuity. We extend that to our afternoon tea catering services.

Some afternoon tea catering services offer a small set of set menus and catering options and don’t build in room for change. We don’t do that. We can take our base services and customise them for each client so that their afternoon tea experience is created especially for them. Furthermore, we can even help you decorate, and for businesses, the marketing and branding experience of our parent company, the Pearl Lemon Group, can be tapped to ensure the occasion is as beneficial to their image and bottom line as it is to the attendee’s taste buds!
