My cousin Katy and I enjoy spending time together in Brighton so when she said she had never been for a full afternoon tea we decided we must go for her birthday celebration and Terre a Terre hit the spot.
I had visited before for dinner with my Husband in February for my own birthday which you can read about here.
We were seated in the front of restaurant rather than the main dining room so we could feel a little bit of a breeze on a very warm Sunday afternoon.
We both had the vegan afternoon tea, which started with the savoury plate.
The Thai rice balls were definitely the most flavourful and not like anything I’ve tried before. I do love a good Chinese bun and this marinated tofu one did not disappoint!
For our first dessert tier we had –
I loved the sorbet, an unusual addition on an afternoon tea and the sweet dukka really set it off.
On tier two there was –
The alcoholic milkshake was a lovely addition and Katy was really taken by the peanut caramel truffle.
Lastly we had –
The scones were really nice, not dry at all – helped I assume by the tea soaking! The coconut cream tasted quite acidic to me, almost like coconut yogurt. We had this all washed down with some very fragrant Jasmine tea.
The service was a little bit slow on getting our savoury course out but we did overhear our waiter complaining to the kitchen so we were assured this wasn’t standard. At £22 each I think this was great value for money. We had our taste buds tantalised and we were well and truly full by the time we left and managed to roll ourselves back up the hill to the train station!
I would definitely recommend this tea for any celebration or just a fab day out!
