Hollie’s Tea Box is a traditional British, Cream Tea service that provides authentic afternoon teas, beautifully boxed and ready to enjoy in the location of your choice.
Over the Christmas of 2021, my homesickness became so real I could hardly bare it and not being able to go home left me feeling quite stuck.
Every year I would make mince pies (a popular British Christmas pie) for my friends and family. However, this particular year I decided to offer them to others, and listed them for sale on our local facebook page.
I was surprisingly overwhelmed with orders and after 4 days of intensive Mince Pie making ( like 400 pies) I was rather sad when it was all over.
I then started making other classic British teatime treats, and remembered how fond of scones (pronounced skons) I was!
I grew up in a house consuming more tea than water. Tea and biscuits or cake in the afternoon was such a wonderful part of our day to look forward to.
Going to my Nana’s house, I knew we would always be in for an afternoon teatime treat.
I had recently been to a tea house nearby, and it was truly wonderful to sit and enjoy afternoon tea outside with a friend. When I got home, I couldn’t help but think how I would love to be able to enjoy a cream tea, in my own home using my own teapot and teacups.
And this is where Hollie’s Tea Box came to light!
I put all my efforts into creating the perfect clotted cream, to sourcing my favorite British teas and jams and of course, perfecting my scone recipes. I am also very proud to say that I use only the highest quality ingredients including mostly organic, free range and whole foods. Just like my Nana would have done!
I sincerely hope that Hollie’s Tea Box will be the perfect reason to sit down with the ones you love to spend time enjoying their company while of course, sipping on tea!
