Six months away from the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book’s release, a bed-and-breakfast in the United Kingdom is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the occasion. Llety Cynin in South Wales is now serving a Wizard’s Tea that features treats and beverages inspired by the series, according to Tasting Table, and there are decorations to match.
The menu for the tea can accommodate adults and kids alike, and it includes items to ignite nostalgia in fans of the series. Potter aficionados can expect chocolate frogs, treacle tarts, and gamekeepers rock cakes that are far less likely to crack teeth than any of Hagrid’s baked goods.
“We have spent the past few months researching, trialling, testing and tasting all sorts of delicious creations in the kitchen and are very excited to finally reveal the menu,” Llety Cynin explains on its website.
Standard loose leaf tea is available, but those looking to indulge can opt for hot butterbeer made with hot milk, caramel, and cinnamon-butterscotch syrup. There are also treats on the kids’ menu inspired by the birthday cake Hagrid prepares for Harry in the first book.
Pastries and finger sandwiches are served on tea stands that bear a strong resemblance to owl cages, and Llety Cynin goes so far as to decorate the rooms with striped scarves, banners, and even its own portrait of the famed Gryffindor common room sentry: the Fat Lady.
If you can make it to Wales for afternoon tea, Llety Cynin has been kind enough to share photos from the Wizard’s Teas on its Instagram page.
