A Huge Afternoon Tea Order For Morning Delivery July 26, 2018 10:53

At the start of the month the NHS celebrated it’s 70th Birthday and many NHS practices across the country held tea parties to celebrate this milestone Birthday. It was a lovely idea to get staff, retired staff, volunteers, patients, users, carers and local community groups together for a cuppa and to share their NHS stories.

Afternoon Tea Party

Devon Heaven was luck enough to be asked to provide an afternoon tea for 100 NHS practices across the country. Practices ranged in size from 10 people to 200 people which lead to a huge number of scones being sent out – 3,400 to be exact! Also included in the afternoon tea packages were 1,100 packets Teoni’s cookies and shortbread biscuits. All of this needed to be dispatched on a single day so that it could arrive on the actual Birthday of 5th July. The tricky part is that cream / afternoon tea hampers can’t be packed in advance due to the nature of the product so it was all hands to the deck. It was a great team effort and we’re very lucky to have staff willing to be flexible by starting work very early on the Wednesday to ensure that every single scone was sent on time.

Our courier DPD were great, sending three vans to collect the parcels on the Wednesday and delivering everything by midday on Thursday so that the afternoon teas could be enjoyed at lunchtime or as a traditional mid-afternoon treat.

Morning Delivery Now Available To All

In the past we haven’t offered a morning delivery option when buying cream tea hampers through the website (only doing them on special request as they were quite expensive). However, we’ve subsequently received a better price for them from our courier so have made AM delivery available for all our cream and afternoon tea hampers for £10 extra (excluding Scottish Highlands/Lowlands, Northern Ireland and any other Islands). It’s nice to have the reassurance that the afternoon tea hampers will be able to be enjoyed over lunchtime particularly when sending them to offices or when having them arrive on the date of a special occasion such as a Birthday or family gathering.

Alterative Easter Gifts – Cream Tea Hampers March 28, 2018 16:23

Are you looking for something different as an Easter present, perhaps for someone who doesn’t like chocolate, well cream tea hampers are a great alternative. Everyone loves cream teas as much as they do chocolate. They are a better small gift for adults than Easter eggs and are ideal for sharing with the family and enjoying together one afternoon during the Easter period. Also, sometimes children can end up with multiple Easter eggs so buy buying an alternative Easter gift you avoid duplicating the same gift.

Although the weather doesn’t always compile Easter coincides with the changing season’s and cream teas are a great way to start the summer, especially for those who have memories of holidaying in Devon or Cornwall.

The Old Forge Restaurant on Dartmoor wins best Afternoon Tea Award October 13, 2015 14:11

The Old Forge in Chagford on Dartmoor

The Old Forge Caffè and Restaurant in Chagford, Dartmoor, has had lots to shout about recently. The Old Forge was judged as having the best cream tea in Devon by independent cream tea reviewer Ditch Townsend, who has tasted over 250 cream teas in the county.

The Old Forge Restaurant - Best Cream Tea in Devon!

In September 15 the Daily Telegraph coined the Dartmoor-based café as "Britain's best cream tea" whilst The Times wrote "the cream of Devon teas". Now the Café Life Awards has crowned the Old Forge Caffè & Restaurant the winner of the Afternoon Tea Experience Challenge sponsored by Tetley Tea. The finals for the competition took place at the ‘Lunch!’ trade show in London and saw the UK's most innovative cafés, bakeries and cookery schools create a bespoke sweet and savoury spread, paired with one of Tetley's range of teas, to provide the ultimate Afternoon Tea Experience. Celebrity chef and café entrepreneur Aldo Zilli was head judge for the competition leading an independent panel of food and drink experts.

Old Forge best afternoon tea in the UKDr Richard Farrington, owner and head chef at The Old Forge since leaving a career in medicine two years ago, said: "The competition today was truly astonishing, and I'm thrilled to be able to take home the prize for my version of a Devonshire Cream Tea - an amazing local speciality that I am incredibly passionate about. To be recognised by the Café Life Awards in this way is a proud achievement and one that I will treasure."

The sandwiches and cakes Richard included in his afternoon tea stand were inspired by the early 1900s, a time period when the cream tea started to become well known to the rest of the country with the expansion of the railways. However, the real fun came with the cream tea element of the afternoon tea. Instead of pairing scones, cream and jam with traditional Earl Grey tea and sliced lemon, Richard made spiced caraway scones (to taste like Victorian seed cake) and served them with homemade Earl Grey-infused clotted cream, lemon curd, and a Red Berry Tetley tea. All the traditional flavours comprising a cream tea are present, but in a rather unusual and highly original form that mad-scientist Heston Blumenthal would be proud of.

The full afternoon tea menu is below:

  • Dainty finger sandwiches (crusts cut off, of course):
    Cucumber on traditional white sourdough bread
    Salmon pâté on seeded bread (including caraway seeds)
  • A chilled glass of homemade lemonade (this could be changed to a glass of champagne for a higher sale price, but Richard prefers the traditional lemonade, whose flavour marries and compliments the other elements of the tea so well).
  • A selection of popular sweet delicacies - here Richard chose shortbread, fruit cake, raspberry tartlets and lemon sponge to best match the other flavours in the afternoon tea.
  • A "Devonshire Cream Tea" with a difference:
    Caraway seed scones (adding the flavour of traditional seed cake) paired with homemade Earl-Grey-infused clotted cream
    Lemon curd (the added lemon to go with the Earl Grey)
    A pot of Tetley Summer Berry Tea

Well done to Richard and the team! We are very proud at Devon Heaven Hampers to sell afternoon and cream tea vouchers for such a highly acclaimed restaurant and café!
