All Aboard The Bohemia Afternoon Tea Cruise

Channel Islands Afternoon Tea

A couple of weeks ago we spent a Sunday afternoon aboard the Bohemia afternoon tea cruise. The only way to start afternoon tea is with tea itself. You just can’t beat a cup of English breakfast tea… unless there’s a tea pot full to the brim served with beautiful cakes…

Finger Sandwiches

We started with finger sandwiches, these hadn’t changed since our previous visit but were still as delightful. I love how you get to have four different fillings. Maybe all sandwiches could come with this option? ( Laura… stop being greedy!)

Summer Afternoon Tea Cruise

We were really in store for a treat this afternoon. Ellen De Jager-Smith, Head Pastry Chef at Bohemia, had managed to create edible nautical goodies.

The scones were just as I remembered, served warm with delicious options of clotted cream, Jersey black butter and strawberry jam. There’s something about biting into a well-topped scone whilst sipping a pot of tea which seems to salute British routes.

Afternoon Tea Bohemia

The show stopper for Danny had to be the Ring Buoy Macaron. Which was a shock to us both as he doesn’t normally favour the fruity option over the chocolatey ones but the summery flavours of peach, olive oil, sea salt and apricot won him over.

I, on the other hand, will always favour something fruity to end my meal. The Summer Berry Tartlet; a Raspberry and White Chocolate Mousse with a touch of Tarragon, Crunchy Raspberry Coral and Fresh Berries was heavenly.
