Afternoon Tea Week celebrates one of the best British traditions, the afternoon tea. Since its creation around 1840 it has become the perfect excuse to catch up with friends and family over a cup of tea and some special treats. This year it takes place from 8th – 14th August 2022.

Anglia Crown is proud to include many NHS hospitals and care homes among our customers, and we believe in the tradition that, even when away from home, you can enjoy a cup of tea and a catch up. Our Crown Choice and Crown Advantage ranges provide some great ideas for desserts that compliment the pot of tea.

We can offer traditional choices like Fruit Cake, along with a refreshingly tasty Carrot Cake, or spicy Ginger Cake. As an interesting alternative to the conventional cakes, perhaps you might like to try our new Ginger Chocolate Chip Sponge, combining the spice and warmth of the ginger with decadent chocolate?

For those within the social care sector, Afternoon Tea is an ideal opportunity to provide much needed additional nutrients, whilst your residents enjoy the social occasion. Everyone loves the special feeling that an Afternoon Tea can provide.

However, and wherever you decide to celebrate Afternoon Tea Week, remember that we are always here to help with menus that are dietetically compliant with BDA Digest standards and to champion customer choice.
