“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the ceremony known as afternoon tea” – Henry James

If you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion at home or simply fancy treating yourself to a special afternoon treat, then Tea with Millie and Ellie offer the perfect thing. We spoke about their afternoon teas earlier in the year during lockdown and it’s been amazing to hear via social media from so many of you that gave it a try. Now they’ve launched their Premium Afternoon Tea that just manages to take it to the next level.

The tea really packs a punch in terms of size, with a wonderful mix of both savoury and sweet treats. 4 finger sandwiches (ham & mustard, smoked salmon & cream cheese, egg & cress, cucumber & cream cheese) come accompanied by homemade quiche, scotch egg and sausage roll to make those savoury options a lot more interesting. The quiche is an individual size and flavours can vary but we sampled the Caramelised Red Onion, Pepper, Mushroom & Cheddar. It was delicious. With the scotch egg showing its perfectly soft boiled yolk and the sausage roll warmed ever so slightly before eating, they were fabulous.

For the sweet treats, of course scones (delicious home-made scones) come with clotted cream and jam, and alongside this you’ll enjoy chocolate brownie, lemon drizzle cake, a mini Victoria sponge and a mini millionaire shortbread. Quite the selection for you to work your way through.

Priced at £15, the quality and quantity is excellent for the price. The best afternoon tea delivery in Leicestershire? I think you’d be hard-pushed to beat it. It’s certainly the best we’ve tried so far.

Tea with Millie & Ellie deliver across Leicestershire from Monday – Saturday. Find out more and order online via the Tea with Millie & Ellie website.

We were sent the afternoon tea free of charge as a thank you for previous promotion we’d done free of charge during lockdown. We were under no obligation to review.
