Afternoon Tea Delivery: The Best Places To Get Yours
While we can’t go out for afternoon tea at the moment, we certainly can bring the afternoon tea to our homes.
We’ve rounded up the best sites offering afternoon tea delivery. All these companies will deliver what you need to put on a spread fit for royalty.
We’ve also included options for you to create your own afternoon tea package; buy a hamper and fill it with as much or as little as you want. If you know someone who’s offering afternoon tea delivery, please let us know in the comments below.

Choose from a variety of afternoon tea styles and budgets at this classic hamper company.
While Selfridges does sell hampers, they don’t have a specific afternoon tea version but you can create your own; choose an empty hamper, your food, drink and crockery and you’re all set.
Choose a hamper according to your budget; this is Harrods so we’re talking luxury, but isn’t now the time to treat yourself?
Another DIY afternoon tea option; they don’t sell empty hampers but they have all the tea, sweet/savoury treats and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks you could possibly require!
If you need a gluten free and vegan option, we suggest ordering in some Borough 22 Doughnuts.
They are vegan and gluten free (top 14 allergen free), award-winning and available for delivery across mainland UK.
