So, Snowcold saw a gap in our Dewsbury/Batley market and boy, have they filled it well! They’ve introduced the halal/alcohol free afternoon tea, and no expenses have been spared. The afternoon tea consists of ten varieties of tea (inc. Darjeeling- the ‘champagne’ of tea), savoury sandwiches, fresh scones, and an array of homemade patisserie and cakes.⠀
There are 3 types of generously filled sandwiches : tuna crunch, cheese & onion and egg mayo. They are fresh and super tasty.⠀
On the middle tier, we’ve got a range of homemade patisserie, and we start off with the carrot and walnut cake, which has the perfect ratio of topping and cake. It’s moist, and the walnuts aren’t overwhelming.⠀
Next , there’s the Lemon drizzle cake. The ‘fizzy’ drizzle on top works well with the tangy lemon of the cake.⠀
The small cube is a coconut and berry bite: again, soft cake, flavourful berry, and a nice layer of coconut on top.⠀
The chocolate brownie with salted caramel topping is perfect for those who like their brownies gooey and the millionaire shortbread will satisfy the cravings of those who like a buttery base and smooth caramel.⠀
Then, we’ve got a bite-sized cube of chocolate fudge, filled with amazing pieces of rice puffs that give a satisfying crunch.⠀
We must say a highlight of the afternoon tea was the strawberry cheesecake: a crunchy biscuit base, topped with a light and fluffy strawberry and cream layer, then drizzled with strawberry gel.⠀
The homemade scones were made to perfection. They were golden brown, had slight crust on the outside, and the inside was light, soft and a nice white in colour. We had them the next day and they were still as good as the day before. ⠀
Launches: Monday 22nd October.⠀
£24.95 for 2. (Approx. £12.45pp)⠀
Available 12pm-4pm weekdays only.
(No prior booking necessary.)
Thank you to Snowcold for the invite.
