Afternoon Tea Hampers as Gifts
The thing we love about afternoon tea hampers as gifts is that they can be sent straight to the recipient and enjoyed instantly. It's also hard to find someone who doesn't like an afternoon tea and they are often a nice change from flowers or chocolates.
Keeping the Food Fresh
All of Devon Heaven's afternoon teas are sent via next day courier, travelling overnight and arriving the following day which helps to keep the cream and scones fresh. The clotted cream is placed in an insulated pouch with an ice pack to help keep it cool for 24-48 hours. Deliveries are all tracked online using DPD's 'predict and follow service' which allows for buyers to nominate a safe place or neighbour to leave the parcel with in the event that the recipient is not at home.
What goes into Devon Heaven's Afternoon Tea Hampers
The scones are produced by artisan bakers the Devon Scone Company, whose scones are a cross between the modern scone and the traditional Devon split, which has a more bread like texture. This has 3 main benefits, they're great for soaking up the clotted cream, they stay fresh for longer and they don't crumble into pieces. They are ideal for sending by post.
Langage Farm provide the thick Devonshire clotted cream, traditionally made from a herd of Jersey and Guernsey cows. They're the first UK Carbon Neutral Dairy with an Anaerobic Digester Facility generating electricity from food waste, which supplies the Farm and Dairy with its energy needs.
The jam is also produced by the Devon Scone Company using local grade one strawberries and has received a Taste of the West Gold Award. Devonshire Tea and Plymouth Tea are both used in Devon Heaven's afternoon tea hampers with the latter actually producing tea from a UK based tea plantation on the banks of the River Tavy in Devon.
In addition to the key elements of a cream tea, tasty treats like chocolate truffles, rich brownies, artisan biscuits, prosecco and clothbound cheese are included in Devon Heaven's Afternoon Tea hampers.
