Afternoon Tea – The Assembly House

Time for Tea Please?

As a belated birthday treat off of my mum I was treated to afternoon tea at The Assembly House in Norwich Norfolk. I absolutely love their afternoon teas and the setting is just amazing for it!

I could stare at that decor and those chandeliers all day long!

The afternoon tea is of a set menu but there are lots of choices of tea to choose from all of which are from a local tea company , Wilkinsons.

Every time I come here I like try at least 1 or 2 teas and always a different blend.

Today I’ve gone for the Peach blend. A China black tea with dried peach pieces.

You get a large pot of tea filled with loose leaf tea and a tea strainer to keep the bits in. The only downside of this way of having tea is that you don’t have control over the final strength as you aren’t able to remove the loose leaves. Which is fine for me as I love a strong tea.

As a black based tea with fruit flavouring, it’s brewed liquid of a brown colour. With its fruity aspect within the blend I will drink it black as I find flavoured black tea with milk a bit weird ! However that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t!

Firs sip is light and refreshing. With some fruit black teas it can be too dark and out shine the fruit flavour. With this tea its full of flavour and the peach out powers the black tea aspect of it making it tealicious. The other perk of this tea is that it’s a great pallet cleanser for all the aspects of an afternoon tea.

You get so much choice from delicate sandwiches, to warm scones and lots of sweet treats ! You can even ask for more of everything!
