On Saturday we put on our first pop-up event and it was mint! We had an afternoon of tea on the lawn at Blackfriars Restaurant in Newcastle.
We were so lucky with the weather and had sunshine for the whole day. Some people sat at tables, some on picnic benches and some people brought blankets to sit on the lawn – ideal also for a little snooze after all the delicious food.
The food was lush! All homemade by the talented chefs at Blackfriars. The menu was:
A selection of sandwiches :
Rare Northumbrian beef & English mustard, Smoked Scottish salmon, cream cheese & lemon, Free-range egg mayo & cress, Cucumber & cream cheese all on homemade bread.
One plain and one with raisins. They were served with two types of homemade jam – fig (could eat this by itself!) and a gorgeous fruit jam.
Cakes & Pastries:
Lemon polenta cake and a fig pastry
Unlimited amounts of tea!
This included all our blends as well as some exciting new ones such as passion fruit, soursop, summer berry, lemongrass and ginger, peppermint, spearmint and lots lots more.
Outstanding food and (if we may say so ourselves) outstanding teas! And if you loved the food then check out Blackfriars Restaurant and book yourselves a delicious meal.
The event was brilliant and we were totally fully booked. Apologies if you didn’t get a space. We will be putting another one on in the not so distant future so watch this space!
A HUGE thank you to all the lovely people who turned up and the continued support you all show to The *TeaShed. You are mint. Thank you.
Thank you also to all at EAT! Festival – one of the best food events in Newcastle/Gateshead. Check them out on their website. We will be at the EAT! Festival Food Heros event on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th, with a market stall on Grainger Street. I will also be giving a talk there on Fri and Sat at 11.30. Hope to see you then!
Lots of Love, *TS X
