Weavers' House Spa at The Swan at Lavenham has introduced its own 'spa take' on the traditional afternoon tea to satisfy their most health food conscious guests who enjoy a sweet sensation. The Tea-Tox offers a handpicked selection of healthy, raw and gluten free delights from the hotel's award winning cake and pastry chef Anmar Odendal.
"I wanted to create a health conscious afternoon tea, with superfood ingredients", said Anmar. "Now people are quitting gluten and working on the inside out, eating clean doesn't mean you can't have a little of what you fancy".
The menu includes a selection of delicate finger sandwiches filled with cucumber, dill and black pepper; smoked salmon and lemon crème fraîche; maple roasted Suffolk ham and a Manor Farm hen's egg with light mustard mayonnaise. Handmade raisin and apple and walnut scones follow served with clotted cream and jam and lemon curd preserve - all with gluten free options.
The final tempting, but healthy treats include peanut butter and chia seed bites - raw, vegan, gluten free packed with energy and natural sugar; carrot and sultana loaf - dairy and gluten free goodness served with homemade berry jam; sweet potato brownies - gluten free deliciousness, and fresh fruit skewers - a selection of seasonal fruits and berries.
Indulge your senses, enjoy a spa experience and then treat yourself to a little of what you fancy with a Tea-Tox. Served in the tranquillity of the spa after your treatment, it can be taken on the outdoor terrace by the Vitality Pool or indoors in the relaxation suite. It's just £19.50 per person including your choice of our bespoke blended herbal teas from Camelia's Tea House.
