Description

Our extended afternoon tea began in a truly civilised manner with strong earl grey tea, treacle tart, eccles cakes and cinnamon buns sprinkled with desiccated coconut. After sweetening the tea with a spoonful of brown sugar I reached for a chocolate digestive biscuit and proceeded to dunk it in the tea until the chocolate had melted. We then progressed onto cocktails with manhattans and an old fashioned and debated how spiced rum would taste with cloudy lemonade. Breaking open a packet of dark chocolate with chilli we could smell the fresh oak from the nearby timber yard that gave the air a wonderfully fresh and clean scent.
