Celebrate Afternoon Tea Week with Walkers
Afternoon Tea Week, running from the 12th – 18th August, not only offers an excuse to enjoy a warm cup of tea, but the perfect opportunity to indulge in your Walkers Shortbread favourites too.
When dinner seems too far away and lunch seems like a distant memory, a sweet treat accompanied by a warm cup of tea can be just the ticket to relax, unwind and keep hunger at bay.
Remember, you don’t have to find a local tearoom to enjoy Afternoon Tea Week; thanks to our Afternoon Tea Gift Bag, you can enjoy the experience from the comfort of home. Complete with a range of Walkers treats including a variety of shortbreads, Extremely Chocolatey Cookies and Ecclefechan Tarts, the reusable gift bag also includes Edinburgh Tea & Coffee Company Ltd Highland Blend Tea Bags and your very own Walkers China Mug!
So now you have all you need, how should you enjoy your afternoon tea?
- Traditional afternoon tea etiquette stipulates you should never dunk your biscuits. However, with Walkers Shortbread, this is a perfectly acceptable practice.
- Let your cup brew for three to six minutes for the perfect flavour. Any longer, and the delicate flavours of the tea could be damaged.
- Cream or jam first on your scone? Whilst the Devon tradition says cream first and the Cornish advise beginning with jam, the Walkers Shortbread tradition is eating it your way, enjoying every bite, and following it with an Ecclefechan Tart.
- When it comes to afternoon tea dress code, smart casual is the way forward. Trousers or smart jeans are fine for gents, whilst a day dress is ideal for ladies. Alternatively, if you’re indulging from the comfort of home, pyjamas will do just fine.
So, however you celebrate Afternoon Tea Week, enjoy it with Walkers.
