Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited down to Bettys Tea Rooms in Harrogate to try out their new Lady Betty Afternoon Tea menu. I was over the moon to be given this opportunity for two reasons.
Firstly, I absolutely adore afternoon tea. The delicate sandwiches and the assortment of miniature cakes look like they belong in a dolls house and there isn’t much that beats a good scone with jam and cream. If there was a food heaven it would feature all the elements of a good afternoon tea. Also, obviously, there is the tea. Now I’m not at all a fan of your standard Yorkshire brew, but I really can appreciate a weak, black tea infused with pretty sounding flavours.
Secondly, I got to spend the afternoon with my Mum. One of my best friends and the source of all wisdom! I couldn’t wait to spend some quality time with her and what better setting to do that!
