Harvey Nichols – Afternoon tea

Having a very civilised afternoon tea at Harvey Nichols in Leeds.


Harvey Nichols - afternoon tea smA trio of sandwiches

  • Cheese and apricot chutney
  • Salmon
  • Ham and mustard

A trio of little cakes

  • Lemon macaroon
  • Raspberry madeira cake
  • White chocolate profiterole.

A scone with raspberry jam and clotted cream

A cup of tea.

I’m always taken aback by afternoon tea, though. For some reason I almost always expect slightly more sandwiches

    Only one cup of tea? I’d you good do with a whole pot to go with all that delicious treats. I love high tea. Take time to relax, talk some, look around some ( so nice to do!) And of course….sketch! An other nice one!


  2. Wow – love your representations!
    3 sandwiches, 1 scone, 3 pastries – does sound pretty small.
    Used to live in Leeds too, by the way!


  3. (I have to admit I was still hungry afterwards – I don’t really need an excuse to visit Yo Sushi at the best of times!)


  4. For my birthday my sister got me an afternoon tea at a little upmarket tearoom called The Spiced Pear – where I was treated to a Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea! (Which I’m in the process of finishing illustrating) It had pork pie, beef and dripping and Yorkshire pudding, as well as scone and cakes. I had to have an accompanying ale to wash it all down.
