Wizard of Oz Afternoon Tea at Cardamon Tea Lounge

Please note Cardamon Tea Lounge & Shop has now closed but they do offer afternoon tea deliveries in Colchester, please see our list of the Best Afternoon Teas in Essex for 2022 here.


Like Dorothy herself, we skipped along the yellow brick road to the Cardamon Tea Lounge in Colchester Essex to try out the Wizard of Oz Afternoon Tea.
A lovely little tea room with an Alice in Wonderland twist and also features on our list of The Best Afternoon Teas in Essex. It is a real hidden gem and in particular has become a popular spot for wonderful and imaginative Themed Afternoon Teas in Essex. The Wizard of Oz themed afternoon tea is running for the month of November 2019 but will be back again in 2020.

We were transported to the land of Oz. The table was dressed beautifully, complete with our very own scarecrow, hot air balloon and even a tornado! We definitely wasn’t in Kansas any more!
The themed Wizard of Oz Afternoon tea was breathtaking. Each element had been imaginatively designed and produced. The Cardamon Tea Lounge put so much effort into creating each themed afternoon tea and the Wizard of Oz Afternoon Tea is no exception.


First of all we enjoyed the most delicious selection of sandwiches filled with egg mayo, ham & tomato and cheese & caramelised onion. We also had a Scarecrow diploma (a chicken salad wrap) and a savoury filled vol au vent. The sandwiches are always very fresh and made with a mix of white and wholemeal bread. The savoury course was also served with a mini salad in a tea cup.

The savoury course at the Wizard of Oz Afternoon tea was followed by home made green witchy Matcha flavoured scones served with clotted cream and jam. Along with this were so many Wizard of Oz themed sweet treats to choose from. They included an Emerald City parfait dessert served in a tall glass, mini lemon poppy cake, over the rainbow macaroon and lots of other yummy delights.

Additionally the Wizard of Oz afternoon tea is accompanied with your choice of tea, coffee or cold drink. The Cardamon Tea Lounge have over 50 varieties of tea on offer.
