A patisserie has delivered 6,000 afternoon tea boxes during lockdown.

Tiptree Patisserie in Witham has turned their business around to deliver afternoon tea boxes to Essex residents during the UK-wide lockdown.

Boxes include their famous Tiptree Strawberry Jam as well as cakes, biscuits and scones.

Managing Director Daren McGrath said: "People in lockdown were keen to enjoy a treat at home and many of our customers are now sending the afternoon tea box to friends and relations as a birthday gift.

"We quickly created an afternoon tea box for four people: handmade cakes, biscuits and scones, with Tiptree Strawberry jam and optional Cornish Clotted Cream which proved to be a great hit with people in Essex.

"We have extended the options adding fresh Tiptree strawberries and a “Tipsy” version with a bottle of Tiptree Strawberry Gin Liqueur."

The patisserie has been been offering customers fresh eggs, flour, milk and cream.
