Afternoon Tea Recipes
Afternoon tea is such a wonderful way to slow down and enjoy an afternoon with good company. My parents took me to a lovely hotel in Belfast for my 30th birthday for afternoon tea and it’s a day I won’t forget. We chatted, we nibbled, we drank pots of tea. With Mother’s Day coming up, it’s a lovely excuse to get baking and treat your mum to a homemade afternoon tea. Here are my top recipes, perfect for a Mother’s Day afternoon tea.
