High Tea on England's Highest Mountain

High Tea on England's Highest Mountain

Hey Guys,
It is not everyday I am offered the chance to dine at the summit of England's highest mountain. In fact, it's never! So when an email popped into my inbox from NOVELTEA and The Florist, with an invite to do just that, how could I say no? I am an avid afternoon tea lover and have written many posts on my blog about different experiences I have had, but I can assure you, none will compare to this National Afternoon Tea Week adventure!
It was a Sunday morning when my best friend Naomi and I set off for Seascale, in the Lake District. Three trains from London Euston later, and we finally arrived to the Gosforth Hall Inn, a lovely hotel nestled in the small village of Gosforth, just at the base of Scafell Pike. We were to tackle Scafell the following day, so for this evening, it was down to the local for a Roast Dinner and to get to know the other invitee's!6am on Monday morning seemed to roll around pretty swiftly. We packed up our kit; including essentials like boiled sweets, waterproof phone case and my vlogging camera (check out the vlog on my YouTube channel!) After a quick briefing from our wonderful guides from ...... and final toilet break, it was time to begin...
I wasn't really sure what to expect of the hike. I haven't been on a hike since 2015 in California and the weather was certainly miles from the LA sun! We were met with lots of rain that made sure the first hour or so was soaking wet. We pushed through, stopping every now and again to catch our breath and have a sip of water. My hotel breakfast (full English-why did I do that?) sloshed around in my stomach, insuring I had the trifecta of medical problems - funny tummy, shortness of breath and achy legs!Although I believed whole-heartedly that I wouldn't make it to the top, I set aside my own negative thinking and pushed through to the peak. And it was so worth it! We were greeted onto the summit with a cup of warm NOVELTEA and a High Tea feast provided by The Florist team (yes they had carried this set-up all the way to the top!)The Florist are celebrating their new Asian-inspired menu consisting of sushi, bao buns, popadoms, guacamole, donut bites and more!
All this washed down perfectly with the delicious alcoholic tea's from NOVELTEA. I really loved it warm like a tea and cold like a cocktail. My favourite flavour is probably the whiskey to have warm and the gin for cold. Huge thank you to NOVELTEA, The Florist and Twist Marketing for this unforgettable experience! Make sure to head down to your nearest The Florist restaurant to enjoy this amazing High Tea menu paired with NOVELTEA, for yourself!
Where is the most impressive place you have had High or Afternoon Tea?
