The Cauldron Launches Wizard Afternoon Tea

8. Tea_5

The Cauldron, Edinburgh’s most magical venue, has announced the launch of an interactive ‘Wizard Afternoon Tea’ Experience as it reopens its doors on April 26th.  The brand new immersive experience is for both kids and adults alike, and is an interactive and magical experience that also fits with the government guidelines around operations.

Use a working magic wand to brew scintillating teas and interact with an experimental cake stand topped with a pulsing dragon egg.  The food offering is a magical twist on traditional Afternoon Tea items with elements of molecular gastronomy — sand-witches, Elven scones wrapped in banana leaves, freeze-dried Skittles, and éclairs oozing with mini pipettes filled with chocolate sauce.

When guests arrive they select their working, illuminated wand (full of magic), and enjoy their Wizard Afternoon Tea Experience at a magic wand-interactive tea tree, which is decked with tasty treats.  The magic wand is also used to open a locked puzzle box containing the ingredients needed to brew flavourful teas.  The Experience encourages tea experimentation with different loose-leaf tea and flower varieties, which are crushed with pestle and mortar and timed with extra-large tea timers.  Try food items that you didn’t even know exist and watch as your tea transfigures its colour!

The Wizard Afternoon Tea Experience is suitable for both children and adults — participants select the Arcane Wizard’s Tea Experience (adults) or the Little Wizard’s Afternoon Tea (kids) with child-sized portions.  There are also vegan and gluten-free options available.  Should government regulations allow alcohol to be served, guests can add a glass of bubbly (with actual alcoholic bubbles), cocktails dispensed via magic wand from the mouth of a unicorn, or a Cauldron signature molecular potion.

The brand new Covid-safe, interactive Wizard Afternoon Tea Experience comes from The Cauldron Co., the same “magicineers” behind the Edinburgh’s well-known wizard-inspired cocktail experience, The Cauldron Potions Experience.

The Cauldron Co. has also just launched a crowdfunded investment campaign, Equity For Magic, raising investment to help the business expand its fantastical, make-believe immersive experiences to more people.

The Cauldron’s Wizard’s Afternoon Tea will be open from April 26, 2021. Tickets cost £34.99 for the Arcane Wizard’s Tea and £19.99 for the Little Wizard’s Afternoon Tea. Bookings are now live via
