What’s so special about Friday 29th June? It’s National Cream Tea Day! (I had no idea either, had to google it…)
In my opinion the only acceptable way to celebrate is with a glass of prosecco and a scone loaded with jam and cream! Join us at Yorkshire’s stunning new event marquee at York House, Malton for the perfect afternoon of sandwiches, cakes and enjoyment. What’s more, you’re supporting an award-winning local charity, the Encephalitis Society.
Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain, a devastating neurological condition. We are the only resource of our size offering support, information and advice to people affected by encephalitis across the globe and we are passionate about moving closer towards a world aware of encephalitis.
Is there a better way to support a local award winning charity than a refreshing afternoon tea on a warm summer’s day? Sitting in the grounds of one of Malton’s most luxurious hotels, you’ll experience afternoon tea in style. Traditional sandwiches, cakes, drinks and ambience will be provided, along with prosecco for a sparkling finish.
Here’s a few tips from The Cream Tea Society on how to properly enjoy cream teas
1. If you don’t want to pour, don’t sit near the pot! The person nearest the pot should pour for everyone (if you’re clumsy, best make sure it’s not you).
2. Tea before milk. Pour the tea first, followed by milk (so you can accurately judge the required strength) and then sugar.
3. Spoons on saucers, please. Once you’ve stirred, place your spoon on your saucer (think of the table cloth).
4. No outstretched pinkies! Always hold the cup between your thumb and forefinger.
5. Jam before cream. While there’s much debate around which goes first (a dispute dividing Cornwall and Devon), etiquette gurus Debrett’s say you should spread your jam before dolloping cream on top.
6. A final word. Never use whipped cream. It’s utterly improper.
Don’t miss out, book your table of 10 or individual place at our Afternoon Tea in Yorkshire’s Food Capital. Enjoy an elegant menu, in a perfect setting, raising funds for an award winning charity.
