Themed Afternoon Teas at Wildflower Teas on the Bus in Essex
Christmas Afternoon Tea
The Christmas Afternoon Tea at Wildflower Teas on the Bus is a merry affair, you receive three tiers of festive delights. It is £30 per person and served with unlimited tea, coffee or hot chocolate! It is yummy!
Your Christmas Afternoon Tea includes a huge plate of the most delicious and fresh sandwiches. All of the festive favourites are included, they are:
- Turkey & Cranberry
- Cheddar & Festive Chutney
- Roast Beef & Horseradish
- Ham & Honey Mustard
- Cream Cheese & Cucumber
The next tier swapped out the scones for a savoury tier consisting of pigs in blankets, a selection of cheese, crackers and grapes. This was a nice addition to the afternoon tea that can be enjoyed before or after the cakes.
The cake tier was absolutely delicious, perfectly sized cakes and desserts, which included:
- Christmas Pudding Cheesecake (this was unbelievably good, I’m not a fan of Christmas pudding, but this was truly amazing, I could have eaten two!)
- Traditional Christmas Cake
- Mini Mince Pies
- Hazelnut & White Chocolate Torte

This was a really enjoyable and festive afternoon tea, it felt even more special enjoying seated on the top of a double decker bus! The sheer amount of sandwiches was brilliant, I love the savoury part of an afternoon tea and these were a really nice selection of flavours. The pigs and blankets were a great addition too.
