Traditional tea time baking

Make mouth-watering Scottish shortbread, the perfect Victoria sponge and scones. Caroline explains all processes and factors to consider when baking.

Tantalising tea time treats (including French style Macarons)

Host a tea-party like no other with incredible macarons. Learn the delicate skill then make fillings from scratch. Fillings include a tangy orange buttercream, chocolate ganache, lime buttercream and raspberry jam. You’ll also decorate ready-made sponges with your icings. Take home your creations and recipes after a simple meal of finger sandwiches and a tasting session.

Tea tasting class

Become a tea connoisseur. Taste 12 – 15 teas and learn to appreciate the differences in tea blends. You’ll understand the basic characteristics of tea, the importance of temperature, water quality and brewing times. You’ll get tasting notes, instructions on the best way to brew tea and samples of teas to try at home.
