Summer in a Tea Cup – Celebrating Afternoon Tea Week

Next week is Afternoon Tea Week across the UK, and here at the Green House Hotel, Bournemouth’s most eco-friendly luxury boutique hotel, we are getting together with one of our very favourite suppliers, Dorset Tea, to offer the chance to win not only a free Afternoon Tea for two, but also a sumptuous Dorset Tea hamper worth over £60.

Regular readers of this blog will know that Dorset Tea is one of the Green House Hotel’s favourite suppliers because, like us, it embraces ethical values and an uncompromising commitment to quality. With 57 years’ tea blending expertise, Dorset Tea  works collaboratively with specially selected tea gardens, selecting only the best teas for use in its Golden Blend. Dorset’s natural beauty and sunshine go into every cup. Their love of Dorset has also inspired a new range of fruit & herbal infusions and green teas which capture the “all-round loveliness” of our beautiful county from Strawberries & Cream tea to Cool Camomile.

That’s why we thought Dorset Tea would make the perfect partner for the Green House Hotel right here in Bournemouth during Afternoon Tea Week. Running from 10th-16th August, the week celebrates the great heritage of afternoon tea across the UK with a week of activities, themed menus and offers in hotels, restaurants and tearooms across the country.

Anyone who takes tea with us here at the Green House Hotel during Afternoon Tea Week will be given the chance to enter our prize draw. Winners will take away a beautiful wicker Dorset Tea hamper with leather straps, worth over £60, containing a selection of Dorset teas,  a tea towel, two enamelled cups and a Dorset Tea bag. It’s the perfect way to take Dorset home with you! The draw will take place at the Green House Hotel on Monday 17th August, and winners will be contacted the same day by email.

Meanwhile, anyone entering Dorset Tea’s website competition in the same week has the chance to win a Green House Hotel Afternoon Tea for Two voucher, which can be redeemed with us any time before the 22nd December.

Our Afternoon Tea, at £18.50 per person, is made fresh to order daily at Arbor, the Green House Hotel’s award-winning, 2 AA-rosette restaurant. Tea can be taken anytime between midday and 5pm in the restaurant itself, in the Green House Hotel’s chic, relaxed bar, or, weather permitting, on the lawn. The Green House Hotel Afternoon Tea includes:

  • Traditional Finger Sandwiches with fillings such as smoked salmon, egg & cress, cheese and ham
  • Freshly baked fancies such as carrot cake, chocolate fudge brownie, flapjacks and rocky road
  • Warm Homemade Chocolate chip and traditional scones, Dorset clotted cream & Strawberry Fields preserves

To make it a really special occasion, you can even treat yourself with a bottle of Bollinger Special Cuvee NV Champagne (£68.00), or Furleigh Estate Blanc de Blanc English sparkling wine (£46.00), two of the wonderful bottles of fizz featured on the Arbor wine menu.

We’d love for you to come and celebrate Afternoon Tea Week with the Green House Hotel and Dorset Tea. You could just drop in or, to be sure of getting your chosen slot, call us today on 01202 498900 or book online  here. We’ll go and get the kettle on!
