NB If your order won't go through it might be because that DATE is fully booked, so try another date instead OR order a GIFT VOUCHER for the Afternoon Tea for Two deliciousness instead. We can either email an e-voucher or post a gift voucher out to you (so you can give it to the lucky recipient!) or we'll send it straight to them ourselves, with your gift message. The recipient will then have 7 months to use their voucher and they can liaise directly with us about their preferred delivery date. Perfect! These hampers are then delivered Tues - Sat (excluding Tues/Sat after Bank Holidays) but someone MUST be at the delivery address for the deliciousness on arrival. If not possible, just send a gift voucher instead.
* WHY WE CANNOT OFFER TEA FOR ONE *
As soon as we add fresh clotted cream or fresh sandwiches (which contain salmon…butter etc), then the packaging has to be chilled to be sent out and must go by speedy overnight courier in very special boxes with insulated lining. That aspect costs about a third of the overall price alas but it's so we can safely transport the goodies even on warm days (and this all had to be tested by the Environmental Health peeps). However, a Cream Tea for One requires all the same packaging, chilling, speedy courier as a Tea for Two - exactly the same…. so any saving made by it containing slightly less ingredients is so minimal…you'd be far better off having the Tea for Two and freezing the spare cakes etc!
