Time for Tea
At Northumberland Cheese Company, we do our best to make the most of the wonderful products made in our area. In this hamper, we're featuring our favourite sweet treats from the North, for a delicious Afternoon Tea...
Cheese and fruit cake is a heavenly combination, so we've started with some Jenkins and Hustwit fruit cake and a 300g wodge of our Coquetdale cheese; the cake was created by a local lady in Bishop Auckland, and packed with juicy raisins, it is a fabulous accompaniment to our creamy, rich Coquetdale cheese. We have also included some Northumbrian Preserves Plum and Cinnamon Jam, if you wanted to sweeten up that combination! It's locally made with plums from our producer's own garden.
Pumphreys are a Northern born and bred, and have been supplying the North-East with tea since the 1800s! We have selected the black tea with rose petals for this hamper, for a sophisticated addition to the sweet treats. We have also included a tea infuser, so that you can enjoy a beautifully brewed cup of tea.
Finally, we have also added some Fine Cheese Company Rosemary Crackers, just in case you would prefer a more traditional accompaniment to your Coquetdale cheese. The perfect gift hamper!
