Afternoon Tea At Bettys, Harrogate

Last Saturday, I was invited to join some other bloggers for the Lady Betty Afternoon Tea at Bettys. I love Bettys and took part in a photoshoot last summer at their Harlow Carr Tearoom. This event took place at their flagship tearoom in Harrogate.

All About Tea

After a welcome glass of champagne, (champagne is always welcome is it not), one of Bettys tea buyers, Will Dixon, gave a talk about tea. I love tea, but know little about it. I rarely drink anything other than English breakfast or green tea with peppermint, so it was lovely to learn about and to try several different types of black, green and white teas. My favourite was China Rose, a black tea layered with rose petals and believed to keep the mind, body and spirit in harmony. It tasted beautiful. Very delicate with a definite but gentle rose flavour.

Meeting Other Northern Bloggers

Afternoon Tea at Bettys was organised in conjunction with We Blog North, a collective of bloggers, bloggers and social influencers from the North-West of England. Everyone there, therefore, is based in this area.

You might recognise Raj, (in the green dress), because she also took part in the photoshoot at Bettys Harlow Carr last summer. Next to her is Susanna, A Yorkshire Girl and behind her is Lucy, Harrogate Mama. I “knew” these fabulous ladies through Instagram, so it’s wonderful to have finally met them in real life.

Bettys Windows

For the last year, I have driven past Bettys Window in Harrogate every week when I’ve been taking my son to and from football training. I can’t tell you how excited I get to see the new seasonal displays. Robyn, in the above photo at the table, is the creative force behind everything beautiful at Bettys and he is already well on the way with the design for the Christmas windows. I can’t wait to see.

It was a delightful afternoon and I will definitely take Lady Betty Afternoon Tea at Bettys again. It’d be lovely for a birthday, hen party, graduation celebration, Mother’s/Father’s Day, (men are just as welcome) or just because. And you can book online so you can skip the queues too!

Thank you so much to Bettys and We Blog North for inviting me. It was wonderful.

    I absolutely adore High Tea! It was the first truly British thing I tried when I arrived in London 30 years ago. Well besides getting on a red double decker bus 😉
    I still love it just as much today. Thoroughly enjoyed reading your post Liz & those sandwiches looked delish 😉
