Yes, yes, we know it’s only November, but the colder weather is upon us, the Christmas lights are up in the high street, and we’re starting to get those festive feels at Boston, which can only mean one thing – edible Christmas treats!
Now available at your local Boston Tea Party, are our selection of seasonal delights for you to tuck into. Whether it’s a shopping trip pit-stop, or a cosy afternoon catching up with friends or family, we gotcha.
‘Tis the season to eat a turkey sarnie with roast parsnips and bread sauce mayo! With cranberry sauce and herby stuffing, the Christmas Sandwich is a firm Boston favourite – we look forward to it every year!
Because can you ever feel properly festive, unless you’ve held a glass of mulled wine in both hands on a chilly winter’s afternoon? Ours is lightly spiced and has a delicious smell that can’t fail to make you feel Christmassy.
At this time of year, we switch up our fruity scones for their seasonal cousin, the Christmas Scone. Still served with lashings of clotted cream and jam, but packed with spices, dried cranberries, orange zest and toasted almonds, these are a delicious twist on a traditional cream tea.
We’ve eaten a lot of mince pies in our time, and (if we do say so ourselves) these are absolutely champion. Buttery pastry, chunky, nutty, boozy mincemeat, and topped with a Christmas tree – these need to be sampled to be believed…
