Who doesn’t love Afternoon Tea? As lockdown restrictions continue, it’s still a little tricky for everyone to be able to enjoy the full Afternoon Tea experience at your usual tea room or café. They either may not be open or some of your nearest and dearest may not feel totally comfortable with the idea of going out in public. Instead, you can bring the experience to you and enjoy some tasty finger sandwiches and fluffy jam-filled scones right in the comfort of your own home!

From as little as £12 per person, you can order your package of delights within a few clicks and get it delivered at your chosen time from one of our many services on Poptop. Start planning your next at-home event now with an amazing Afternoon Tea delivery! 

7 Reasons Why Afternoon Tea Is the Perfect Lockdown Treat


1. It’s Fun for All the Family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Put down your recipe books and order Afternoon Tea directly to your doorstep. This is a great way to add some variety to your lunch options and acts as the perfect treat for all of the family to enjoy in many ways. You can all gather around the table, sit in the garden or even go for a walk and have a picnic in the sun – socially distanced of course! Whatever you choose, an Afternoon Tea delivery is a sure way of helping you create those perfect family memories you can cherish forever. And the best part – no dishes! (Well not too many anyway!)

2. It’s a Great Way to Celebrate 🎉

Events and social gatherings have been put on hold but celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries haven’t. Host your very own party in the house and celebrate in style with an elegant Afternoon Tea. It is a wonderful gift to make their special day an amazing experience.

3. It’s a Perfect Pick Me up for Your Loved Ones 🥰

It’s been a pretty difficult time for us all, especially the elderly and those most at risk. What better way to let them know you are thinking of them than getting Afternoon Tea delivered to their doorstep? Even though you might not be able to enjoy it with them, it will be certain to put a smile on their face and make their life at home a little brighter. Not all heroes wear capes, but our suppliers wear masks and gloves, adhering to all health and safety procedures outlined by the government.

The Fab Patissere’s Afternoon Tea delivery package is a great example of how our services manage the current risks, not to mention their gourmet selection of sweets!

4. It Makes the Perfect Lunch Date With Your Partner 💑

Date night’s out may have been cancelled but people have still been trying to find ways to keep the spark alive in many other ways at home. Cooking a romantic evening meal for your partner may be getting a little old now for some but an afternoon tea delivery makes the perfect stay-at-home date idea to shake things up a little. After all, everything’s always better after a cup of tea!

5. Ladies Who Lunch 👯‍♀️

Afternoon Tea was first introduced in the UK as a private social event for ladies. Organise a virtual afternoon tea party event on Zoom or Skype with the girls to check in on your friends. Life is better when we’re connected and technology allows us to do so now more than ever. You may even want to make a proper occasion out of it and dress up – wearing a fancy hat has been a very popular theme on virtual video calls to get the party going!  

6. There’s So Much to Choose From! 💁🏾‍♀️

Finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, pastries and cupcakes – the essential recipe to happiness. With so much to choose from you can be sure you and those indulging in the delicacies of Afternoon Tea will enjoy every bite. Our services can cater to all of your needs including any dietary requirements you may have. All of their packages give you the option to choose your own sandwich filling, sweet treats, as well as extra-special touches such as a personalised message.

Black Truffle Catering has created a Vegan Afternoon Tea Delivery package, which looks very tasty.

7. Support a Local Business 🏡

Many of our services on Poptop are provided by local independent businesses that, like many others, have found this a very challenging time. Ordering an Afternoon Tea delivery is a great way to support small business in your area as shown through the success story of one of our suppliers, Davies & Howell’s Food Events, who have adapted their business model to a delivery service and have put a smile on everyone’s face in doing so!
