When you’re on holiday in the UK, there’s an unwritten rule that you just have to have a cream tea in a pretty location. You have to! The only problem is, you don’t always want a hot drink or a stodgy cake in the summer, especially when the UK is experiencing one of its rare heatwaves. A lot of the time we prefer iced drinks and lighter options. Luckily, if you’re holidaying on the island of Jersey, The Club Hotel & Spa in the heart of Jersey’s idyllic town of St Helier, have the perfect solution – they’re offering Summertime Afternoon Iced Tea during the summer.
For just £19.95 a head, you can enjoy the usual afternoon tea delicacies such as traditional scones served with strawberry jam, Jersey black butter (which is an apple conserve), Jersey clotted cream and a selection of cakes, sandwiches and fancies. Each afternoon tea comes with a seashell shaped Pina Colada Delice which is a sweet treat featuring the two flavours of summer – zesty pineapple and creamy coconut on a white chocolate base for a true summer cocktail experience. There’s also a Jersey inspired Gariguette Strawberry and Mint ice lolly if you prefer something a bit more refreshing. There’s a selection of loose leaf teas herbal infusions in a range of different summer flavours including ‘Jamaican Rum’ and ‘Moroccan Mint Tea’ which not only sound delicious but also perfect for a hot summer’s day, especially if it’s iced. However if you’re feeling fancy, you can get your afternoon tea with a glass of Tempus Two blanc de blancs for only £24.95 or with a glass of chilled de Venoge Champagne for £29.95.
If you’re interested in sampling the Summertime Afternoon Iced Tea for yourself, you can head over to The Club Hotel and Spa between 2:15pm and 5:30pm everyday during the summer where you can enjoy it on their roof terrace or by the pool so you don’t have to miss out on the sunshine and can still top up your tan while you treat yourself. Perfect!
