Why Letterbox Afternoon Tea is the Latest Trend this Summer.
If you want all the charm of a traditional afternoon tea in a hassle-free, letterbox-sized goodie box, look no further! As the weather heats up for the summer and we come out of hibernation, afternoon tea in the garden is an enchanting prospect. It’s never been easier to order a tailor made letterbox hamper from the comfort of your home – with a host of tasty, handmade treats delivered directly to your door.
Traditional afternoon tea with a letterbox twist.
Afternoon tea is a true staple of British society. When combined with the ease of simple and quick delivery, it becomes a convenient treat (or a delightful surprise for a lucky recipient).
Letter Box Hamper offers a truly unique but true-to-form slant on traditional afternoon tea bundles. Our customisable packaging and greeting cards help to make each hamper truly unique. Here’s a look at some of the exciting, locally sourced goodies included in our letterbox afternoon tea hampers.
Two delicious Cornish tea blends
Sourced from the well-respected Tregothnan gardens in Cornwall, this letterbox hamper includes two lovely, handpicked varieties. First is an afternoon tea blended with musky Darjeeling leaves for a uniquely soothing, fruity flavour. In addition to this classic afternoon companion is Tregothnan’s classic tea, a full-bodied Assam blend for a richer alternative to the accompanying Darjeeling blend.
Fresh and sweet raspberry jam
Made with juicy and flavoursome British-grown raspberries, the afternoon teas in this hamper are accompanied by a jar of Boddington’s Berries fresh conserve. Following a traditional Cornish family recipe that only adds sugar to the existing fruit, you won’t find a jam more richly steeped in history and bursting with summery flavour.
Buttery Scottish shortbread
It wouldn’t be an afternoon tea without a good biscuit, so Shortbread House of Edinburgh makes an appearance in this hamper with their original handmade shortbread. Perfectly crumbly and with a remarkable melt-in-the-mouth texture, this is iconic Scottish shortbread at its finest – and best when paired with a good cup of tea on a summer afternoon!
Rich, locally produced dark chocolate
Completing this summery letterbox afternoon tea hamper is a beautiful slab of COCO Chocolatier’s organic dark chocolate. Tasting notes of Earl Grey shine through, giving you the perfect final act for any afternoon tea.
