A trip to the Yorkshire Dales was on the cards for this little adventure and after nearly a 2hr journey from home we arrived at a remote Farm House on the edge of the Dales. It was a lovely scenic drive to The Secret Tea Cup and well worth the journey.
With a lovely menu of Sandwiches and Cake assortments along with a lovely selection of teas to accompany them, we began with a refreshing St Clements drink make by Rachelle. It was lovely to see guests at the table from one of my own Afternoon Teas. I often don’t get time to chat much to my guests so it was really nice to see them again.
Hot from my Tea Masterclass I loved the way Rachelle brewed her Tea. I chose a Darjeeling tea and loved the way the leaves were brewed, then removed from the tea pot to prevent over brewing. This tea was really nice and I persuaded the guest next to me to try it without milk. Later Rachelle recommended a Russian Caravan Tea (Smoked Lapsang Shousong) to aid with the fullness we were beginning to feel by this time.
Before we left, we were given the option of choosing a tea sample from the Tea Experience in Doncaster and I chose Chinese Sencha – Green Tea, which I made 2 brewing’s from this morning. It was lovely.
My thanks go to Rachelle and her sister for all their hard work.
