Time for Tea (and Cake)…

Well we are always keen to provide our supper club attendees with a unique covert experience with our events.

For our April event we are pleased to announce something very different and quite unique.

We are linking up with a Master Tea Blender – Alex Probyn – he is brains behind a highly successful company called Blends for Friends and his HQ is located on the edge of the North Downs in a purpose built Kentish Barn that now is a very busy operation.
Alex blends many teas for assorted companies worldwide, they will produce on average one million plus tea bags per week as well as loose leaf tea blends shipped to locations throughout the world.

Who’d have thought we have such a company within our midst…
Part of the barn has been turned into a swish state of the art bespoke tasting room which is known as the “Blendatorium” where Alex will tutor you through the many vagaries of tea blending – he has a wall of some 500 plus infusions that can create a unique blend.
He will provide attendees with a tutored tasting and this will then be followed by you being able to create your own very unique blend to take home with you.

Finally once this is all completed his in house catering team with some assistance from yours truly we will then serve you with a delightful afternoon tea at their in house café, this will include a selection of sandwiches, homemade cake, biscuits and pastries.

We have also invited Pastry tutor Jonathan Deddis who was a contestant on the last series of the BBC series “Bake Off Crème de la Crème” to also produce some unique high end patisserie where his artistry and skills will also encompass some of Alex’s teas.

This will be a truly perfect way to finish off this event. The café is not open to the public so it will be a truly exclusive and must not miss event. This is a unique way to learn more about the world of tea in a fun and informative way.

The event is a one off we have secured an exclusive all in discounted price for this event of £65 per person that is a saving of £10 per person on their normal tea tasting prices. There are just 12 spaces available on a first come first served basis and the event will only take place if all places are sold so why not get a group of tea enthusiasts together and let’s make a party of it!

To book your places we request you complete the booking form below and we will then invoice you with an online credit/debit card payment link and this will be fully refunded should we not get sufficient numbers for the event.

We request the full payment up front and cancellation by attendees seven days before the event will garner a full refund but thereafter no refunds can be offered unless we can find replacement attendees.

Saturday July 9th & Sunday July 10th – Tea @ Hari Covert’s

Well we have  now opened the bookings for our next event in July… this time we will be opening our doors to guests for a traditional Afternoon Tea.

We will serve twelve customers at each sitting from 2pm and 4pm and the profits earned will go to our designated charity The Hospice in the Weald.

We will also be slightly different as we will be open on the Saturday and then the Sunday…instead of the Friday evening…

A great institution…

We will start by welcoming guests with a glass of something bubbly on arrival and then we will serve a choice of teas firstly with an assortment of sandwiches and this will then be followed by some freshly home-baked scones, Jam and a generous helping of clotted cream. Finally a selection of homemade cakes and pastries will be dished up to you along with teapot refills to a hopefully an appreciative bunch tea enthusiasts…

Also during proceedings we will be selling raffle tickets as we want to raise as much as we can for the Hospice and at the end of each day’s teas we will have a draw for a selection of prizes.

Nearer the day we will be letting you know what we have managed to get as a prizes…!

If you would like to partake in what is quintessentially a very great British institution then please just go to our Book Now page and make sure you make it clear which sitting you require when booking!

Practice on raising those pinkies is perhaps now required !!!
