Baking ...

All High Societeas baking is done by Jan herself.

“Coming from a farming background, baking has always been second nature to me. I was brought up to use traditional farmhouse recipes and always encouraged to try out new ones. As a result I have a wide repertoire but am still enthusiastic and keen to experiment with new recipes and ideas. However, only when they have been perfected will they be produced for my customers!"

Fruit Tarts

East Lothian boasts an enviable amount of premium produce and wherever possible, from Ballencrieff Mains eggs to Black & Gold Rapeseed Oil we source our products locally. We will happily cater for anyone with special dietary needs.


The Tea ...

Serving Tea

The main ingredient for any afternoon tea is of course the tea itself. High Societeas provide a selection of leaf teas at each event allowing you to taste blends you perhaps haven’t tried before. For example

  • High Societeas Tea – a blend of several high quality Indian and china teas.

  • Kenya Highland is a much stronger, darker tea than the High Societies blend.
  • Blue Lady – citrus scented blend of loose black tea with exotic flowers.
  • Batch 29 – is a very special tea from the Amba Estate tea plantation in Sri Lanka. It comes with organic certification.

  • Mixed Berry – fruit infusion.
