Livia’s Kitchen Cream Free Cream Tea

love an Afternoon Tea. What isn’t there to love? Tea, cake, sarnies, scones (cheeky glass of champers….). In recent years I’ve found my tastes changing though- moving away from white flour ,butter filled cake, and more towards creations whipped up using nut butters and maple syrup. It was my mother who gave me my love of Afternoon Tea’s, so we thought it would make the perfect mother daughter afternoon trying Livia’s kitchen’s Cream Free Cream Tea.

The setting was Beach Blanket Babylon– admittedly a place I’m more used to drinking Porn Star Martinis in. Upstairs hides a beautiful airy space, perfect for hosting an Afternoon Tea.
