Morrisons has cut the price of its popular afternoon tea for two to just £10 in its cafés ahead of Mother’s Day. Customers will receive a selection of sandwiches, cakes, fruit scones – complete with jam and clotted cream, and a pot of Yorkshire Tea for mums to enjoy as a tasty treat at an affordable price.
The afternoon tea is presented on a three-tier stand just as it is in hotels and upmarket restaurants to give customers a touch of luxury and make the momentous day extra special. For those that want to dine from the comfort of their own home, the afternoon tea can also be ordered for collection from the store at a date and time that is convenient for them.
M&S Café has launched a brand new afternoon tea offer in time for Mother’s Day. Using M&S quality ingredients, the brand-new menu kicks off with a luxury sandwich selection, all-butter scone, Cornish clotted cream, fresh strawberries, a mini chocolate cupcake topped with buttercream, French macaron, cinnamon Palmier biscuit and Luxury Fairtrade tea – all for £12.50 per person, or £25 for two.
Tesco has a range of savoury snacks and sweet treats to create the ideal Mother’s Day afternoon tea. Fancy a traditional scone with a savoury twist? The added flavour that comes from the extra mature Cheddar in the Tesco Finest 4 All Butter & Cheddar Scones (£1.75) will not go unnoticed.
A tip is to add a sprinkle of paprika and some Parma ham, like the Tesco Finest 14 Month Parma Ham (£2.65), to bring the flavour of the Mediterranean home. As an alternative to finger sandwiches, the Tesco Finest Ultimate Pork Pie (£3.70), which serves four, is a great addition to any Mother’s Day spread.
