Legend has it that afternoon tea was started in the mid-1800s by the Duchess of Bedford, and we thought how can we pack three centuries of teatime wisdom into one wonderful Sparkling Afternoon Tea Hamper, by way of teas, cakes, biscuits and preserves.
Admittedly, it was difficult to choose which of our exceptional teas to include, but in the end, we selected the light and refreshing Afternoon Black Tea, a rich and deep Assam Royal Black Tea, a reviving and uplifting Darjeeling, and a delicate and alluring Jasmine Green Tea.
Then there are delicious things to eat. To start with, there are three scone-ready spreads in the form of a Strawberry & Mint Jam, a Zesty Lemon Curd and a classic Orange Marmalade that will remind you of what marmalade should taste like.
No tea is complete without biscuits, so we've packed in some Strawberries & Cream Biscuits alongside Lemon Butter Shortbread, and a decadent Chocolate & Orange Fruitcake. There's even some Sourdough Crispbread just waiting to be topped with Duck Rillette if savoury delights are more your thing.
Finally, we've included a Pinot Noir Rosé Brut in the Sparkling Afternoon Tea Hamper, with its delicate salmon pink colour, and lovely floral and strawberry aromas, to help add some sparkle to the occasion.

The price of a hamper is always less than the cost of buying the basket and its contents individually.
