A Time For Tea

If you’re  reader of our blog, or follow us over on Didsbury Life, you’ll probably know that we’re big advocates of businesses collaborating. And on Friday, we were invited to the launch of a new business, which has come about from a collaboration between Emma from Pebble in the Pond and Amanda from Pixie Bakery. The new venture – A Time For Tea – offers themed Tea Parties for events & occasions. Four themes are currently available – Traditional Afternoon Tea, Parisienne, New York, New York & Alice in Wonderland…

Each theme brings with it a different style of afternoon tea – but all served on vintage crockery and consisting of a selection of finger sandwiches, cakes, tarts, pastries and a choice of teas.

The launch event was hosted in the rear courtyard of Pokusevskis Delicatessen on Shaw Road in Heaton Moor. It was a perfect venue – although a little blustery – and an antique picture frame and parasol became wind casualties. However, the rain held off and when the clouds did clear, there was perfect blue sky. Very fitting for a summer garden party…

The tables were laden with all sorts of savory and sweet treats, from Madeleines and Macarons to classic Victoria Sponges. Mini Bagels and Brownies to mini seasonal fruit tarts and a variety of fresh finger sandwiches served with a choice of chutneys – and all accompanied by flavoured teas served in vintage pots.

Although lots of companies do serve afternoon teas, what seems to set apart A Time For Tea is the themes they offer – all quite different and there will definitely be one (if not more!) to appeal! Tea Party packages cost £16.00 per person and including cakes, finger sandwiches & a selection of teas, together with the provision of vintage crockery & the styling of your venue.  Additional items include invitations and place cards.

    Those cakes look amazing! Have to say Tea Rooms and Afternoon Tea does seem to be making a resurgence (particularly with the number of them opening up around the Northern Quarter)

    I’ve noticed the Richmond Tea Rooms has the Alice in Wonderland Theme too!
