The Travelling Teacups was started by two friends, Karen & Linda, out of a mutual love of the afternoon tea party – providing an opportunity for friendship and fun, with a touch of elegance. Sharing an afternoon cup of tea between family members had been a much-loved tradition for Linda growing up, and after her daughter returned from a trip to Australia relating a story about a mobile tea party business, the seeds were planted. Karen had always enjoyed afternoon tea with friends and family and so a natural collaboration evolved. They started with their own collection of teapots and china, gradually building up an extensive inventory, followed by recipe testing, scouting out tea blenders and soon they had their first tea party booking!

Takeaway Teas – a Teaparty in a box

With 2 different offerings – a full “Teaparty for Two” or a traditional Cream Tea with a “Scones ‘n Tea” box, both feature the most delectable Scones, accompanied by Devonshire Cream, home-made jam, and a choice of teas. Their creativity with tea party themes ensure some fun and joy accompany each box! And in this mini “Takeaway Tea box” created for you, they have included some delectable Teapot sugar cookies, their custom blend of loose-leaf tea, Rose Cream Earl Grey and of course, a fascinator – Enjoy!
