For Teas' Afternoon Tea | #NationalAfternoonTeaWeek

As it's National Afternoon Tea week, it seems the perfect time to write about all the loveliness I've been having lately. A week or so back I headed to another tea room in Keighley, this time being For Teas. The inspiration being the forties (can you see the pun now?). The tea room itself is quite small, and they were having a surprise vintage party that day, so we were rushed out quite quickly. It was awkward to get the pram in so maybe next time I wouldn't take Dexter with me. The service was a little brash and abrupt too, but I guess they were organising the birthday party so I'm willing to let them off with that.

Afternoon tea costs £9.99 and you get the usual: sandwiches, salad and crisps, pot of tea, scone with cream, fondant fancy, cake and a chocolate sweet treat. All served on a beautiful cake stand. The afternoon tea was simply divine, and I opted for corned beef and onion, and egg mayonnaise sandwiches. All were freshly made too. My dad had the most amazing milkshake covered in all kinds of sprinkles, strawberries, marshmallows and cream, and that tasted delicious too! 

Compared to some afternoon teas I've had before, this was absolutely delicious and well worth the money too. I would definitely go back, perhaps at a different time of year when they are less likely to be preparing for parties, etc. 


  1. The milkshake sounds spectacular and it all looks great, but I hate being rushed, Afternoon Tea should be a leisurely experience!

    1. No one should ever be rushed with their afternoon tea, title suggests it should take the whole afternoon to enjoy haha x
