Because mums deserve an extra special cuppa on Mother’s Day 

Mother’s Day is just around the corner – Sunday 22nd March (mark that in your diary now!) Of course we love our mums all year round, but Mother’s Day is a lovely excuse to spoil her rotten and show just how much we care. We all lead such busy hectic lives these days, it’s sometimes difficult to find the time and energy for the wonderful people in our lives. Creating a memorable experience and spending time with our mums is nowadays so much more valuable. And with that in mind we’ve come up with 5 memorable tea experiences, at a range of price points, to treat your mum to this Mother’s Day. 

**EDIT**

In light of the current and rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, unfortunately it may not be possible to enjoy some of these lovely tea experiences with your Mum on Mother’s Day this year. Of course, we still want to treat our Mums especially during these trying times. So we’ve come up with 3 more tea related gift ideas for Mother’s Day.

Tea Selection Box

Take your Mum on a tea journey with a Tea Selection Box, where she can discover a world of tea from the comfort of her own home. We love The Tea Makers of London selection boxes, and their brand new Premium Envelope Gift Selection gives that extra element of suprise with 12 randomly selected luxury triune teabags, presented in an elegant presentation box.

cost: £9.95 

Luxury Biscuits

What better to go with a perfect cup of tea than a beautifully decorated artisanal biscuit? We ooh’d and ahh’d over The Time For Tea Letterbox Biscuits gift set from Biscuiteers! They partnered with Emma Bridgewater to create this ever so cute biscuit tea set, which comes in their famous hand-illustrated gift boxes that fits through the letterbox.

cost: £25

DIY Afternoon Tea

cost: as much or little as your budget allows

Cream Tea

Take your mum out for a yummy Cream Tea and support your local tea room at the same time! A freshly baked scone (or few), lashings of clotted cream and strawberry jam, all washed down with a perfect pot of tea. Great for a good old chinwag and catching up on all the gossip! Stuck for ideas of where to go? We highly recommend chilling out at an elegant Laura Ashley tea room, or check out our blog on 8 unique tea rooms in the UK.

cost: approx. £5-10

Tea cocktails

Say cheers and raise a toast to mum! Combine her love of a good brew with her favourite tipple, and treat mum to a tea cocktail, or two. Teatulia, nestled in Covent Garden, is where teashop meets cocktail bar, with a carefully crafted tea cocktail menu. Our favourite is the Lemongrass mojito! Or why not mix up your own at home? Check out our gin-based tea cocktails here.

cost: £11

Tea Blending workshop

Unleash her inner tea mixologist, and sign up for a Tea Blending Workshop by Bird & Blend. Their tea blending bar at last year’s FesTeaVal went down a storm (in a teacup 😉 ). Workshops are available to book at multiple locations around the UK, or buy a Gift Experience voucher.

cost: from £40

Afternoon Tea

The ultimate treat for mum, of course, it has to be a sumptuous Afternoon Tea. What better way is there of saying, ‘I love you, mum’, than with a delectable display of fine teas and delicious cakes! We recently had the pleasure of dining at The Palm Court at Sheraton Grand London Park Lane. On the 22nd, they have a special Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea with free flowing bubbles, and a Molton Brown gift for all mums.

cost: £48

Get the family together for a day out at one of the gorgeous National Trust properties. There are plenty of Mother’s Day activities planned over the weekend of 21-22 March, including Fizz Cream Teas, Afternoon Teas, Posy Making, even Mother’s Day pony riding! As Spring starts to make an appearance it’s a lovely time to visit and see the gardens start to wake up.
