Merry Christmas! I hope that you had as lovely a day yesterday as I did!
I know that a lot of people will be looking to the New Year now and thinking of making a new year’s resolution to eat healthier, begin Veganuary, or maybe you can just feel your body craving something more nourishing after the indulgences of Christmas time! Don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be all juice fasts and rice cakes – you can treat yourself to this amazing raw vegan afternoon tea at Rawnchy! This tea is all vegan, gluten free, soy free & refined sugar free.
I visited Rawnchy‘s cafe on Maryhill Road for afternoon tea a few weeks ago with Gemma of Vegan Foodie Gems. We arranged this on the pretence of getting lots of planning done for our blogs, but we mainly just ate, chatted and took lots of photos.
Rawnchy is such a beautiful, dreamy cafe – every where you look there is another lovely little touch. It is full of light, lovely pastels & plants – everything looks amazing, but everything tastes great too.
To drink, you can choose any of Rawnchy’s wide range of hot drinks – including colourful lattes with matcha, lavender, rose & turmeric! You can also choose to bring your own bottle for a small additional charge.
Poppy, the owner of Rawnchy, brought our afternoon tea to us on a beautiful cake stand that was reminiscent of raspberry ripple. Her passion for her business was clear as she described each level to us and she is just so lovely!
For savouries, we had 3 delicious triangles of sourdough toast each, one topped with avocado, one topped with fresh cherry tomatoes, and one topped with a delicious homemade hummus. These were served with antipasti: roasted peppers, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, gordal olives & toasted tamari sunflower seeds!
Then it was onto the sweets! We were really spoiled for choice in this department with a great selection of Poppy’s gorgeous raw vegan cakes – we had 7 different types to try, and 3 tasty petits fours! So 10 different sweets to enjoy! My favourite of these was the salted caramel cake – it really reminded me butterscotch angel delight!
This afternoon tea was £17 each which is great value for money when you consider the cost of the individual elements and the sheer amount of choice you get with this tea! You can choose to BYOB for an additional £3 per person. You do need to book in advance – just drop them an email!
