Local Afternoon Tea Delivery in the North East

Afternoon tea is the perfect treat for celebrating a special occasion, date night or just because it’s the weekend! Although we’re still unable to visit restaurants and cafes to enjoy an afternoon tea, there’s nothing stopping us from tucking into one at home or taking a box full of delicious delights on a picnic!

If you’re after a sumptuous afternoon tea of finger sandwiches, fluffy scones and amazing sweet treats, then look no further. I’ve rounded up some amazing venues and businesses in the North East area that are offering afternoon tea deliveries or collection.

They range from luxurious to hearty, with some serving up their own twists on a classic afternoon tea, as well as gentleman’s tea, cream tea and children’s options too.

There are so many good options from our local, independent businesses, and obviously this list is by no means complete. (If you wish to be added, simply fill in the comment box at the bottom of this blog post with your business name, location and delivery area!)

We’ll go from north to south!
