Bettys events - an occasion to remember

Time for Tea Afternoon Tea

Back to all Special Events

We pride ourselves on managing to source the highest quality of speciality teas for our Café Tea Rooms and mail-order service. But how do we make our selections?

It takes at least five years to train as a tea taster and it can be a continuous learning curve. Experts from our Tea Buying Department at Taylors will be providing a fascinating insight into the world of being a Tea Buyer at this event.

Once a separate tea and coffee business, Bettys was offered the chance to buy Taylors of Harrogate in 1962. As it was a Yorkshire-based, family-owned business devoted to quality, there was rather a lot of common ground. When the chance came for them to join together, it was a perfect match.

As well as exotic single origin teas, we offer a wide range of blends. Our trained tea tasters in the buying and blending department receive 1000's of different samples of tea each week. Join our fascinating talk to discover all about this very selective process.

A delicious Afternoon Tea will be served.

From 12.30pm.
