Afternoon Tea at the Botanics


I love Tea, I am a Tea Ginny – fact. I also love Afternoon Tea, I just love all the little goodies that you get – such a wide choice of naughtiness! My parents are coming to the end of their stay with us and they are also Tea Ginnys, my mum especially being a professional ‘Lady that Lunches’, so I treated them to afternoon tea at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh

Mum doesn’t have a huge appetite so she opted for the cream tea (no photo it wasn’t on the plate long enough!)  Dad and I had the full afternoon tea, which consisted of 3 sandwiches each (Ham, Smoked Salmon and Cucumber for him, Brie and Chutney, Egg Mayo and Cucumber for me), a scone with jam and cream, pavlova, chocolate tart and shortbread.  All washed down with a nice pot of tea.  All really yummy and great value for £7.50 each.

It was very much welcomed after a walk round the entire gardens in the rather fresh winter air! Plus, I got a 10% off voucher for my next visit… oh well if I must!
