Haunted Mansion Halloween Afternoon Tea

Haunted Mansion Halloween Afternoon Tea

Do you dare try the terrifyingly gruesome Haunted Mansion Halloween Afternoon Tea at the Cardamon Tea Lounge & Shop in Essex. Running for the month of October 2018, this Colchester Tea Shop is offering a frightful treat!

You don’t know whether to be horrified or delighted by the selection on offer with the Haunted Mansion Halloween Afternoon Tea. The table is set in a Halloween theme ready for you when you arrive. When our afternoon tea was presented at our table I was amazed at the attention to detail. Each element of the afternoon tea had been carefully thought out to both horrify and thrill the customer.

Savouries

With the savouries for the Haunted Mansion Halloween Afternoon Tea, do not expect your normal mundane sandwiches! Expect a gruesome worm sandwich (hot dog in a brioche bun) served with a syringe of ketchup, devilled eggs and a warming tomato soup.

The Sweet Stuff

The sweet selection on offer with the Haunted Mansion Halloween Afternoon Tea are just as ghastly as the savouries!

You are served these devilish delights: green ghost scones, fresh eyes (really yummy lychee and blueberries), a chocolate tomb cake, a brain jar (a delicious cheesecake) and lots of other gruesome treats!

It is all served with your choice of tea/coffee or cold drink. The Cardamon Tea Lounge has over 50 varieties of tea on offer.
