Tipsy Afternoon Tea at 97 & Social - Jesmond

It's Mother's day on Sunday, yes it is 2 sleeps away! If you've haven't got the special lady in your life a present, what are you doing? 

But don't panic, I have the perfect treat for your Mam. (Yes that's right it's Mam not Mum). And you can Thank me later. 

Tipsy afternoon tea at 97 and Social. It's is exactly like your traditional afternoon tea but the tea pot is laced with alcohol rather than tea. 

I went along with Chloe from New Girl in Toon who is in fact the North East Queen of afternoon tea. We arranged to meet up in Jesmond with a little help from Chloe and passers by on the street I got myself from Central Station in Newcastle on the Metro to West Jesmond and around a mile of walking lost. But I managed to find my way.  

Keeping in with my Caribbean theme I had going throughout the month of February we opted for the tea pot cocktail called, It's a Jamaica 'ting. And believe me it tasted like Jamaica in a tea cup. A mixture of Appleton white rum, velvet falernum, sorrel squash with a drizzle of pomegranate all topped with a little bit of Ting. 

We were instructed to only fill our tea cup half way with the cocktail and then top up with the can of Ting. Perfect Caribbean combination. 

Our afternoon tea stand arrived with three tiers of goodness on. 
We were given a choice of difference sandwiches. I chose cheese and pickle and Chloe opted for Salmon and cream cheese.

We were also treated to scones with a choice of raspberry jam or strawberry jam and of course clotted cream. 

Personally I prefer my scones with the cream on first then jam. Delicious. 

The cake tier was my favourite, filled with brownies, macarons, mini √©clairs and fruit. I was so full by the end I thought I might have needed rolling back to Central Station.   

For 2 people the Tipsy afternoon tea is only £15.95 and for 4 is £29.95. Brilliant price and delicious food. 

Also on Sunday's they do 2 for 1 cocktails which is worth knowing. 

I would advise booking by phone 0191 281 1358 or through their website and your Mam will never know you forgot. 
Now is the time to Thank me ;). 

Happy Mother's day to all you lovely Mam's out there. I hope you have a fantastic day and your little darlings treat you like the Queen you are.
