How it works
Wizard Afternoon Tea at The Cauldron® Edinburgh is a social-distance friendly, interactive tea-brewing experience where you step into the imagined worlds of your childhood through the subtle science of tea brewing, molecular gastronomy, and technology. It has been specially designed for social distancing!
Spell Casting: After selecting your magic wand, you are led to an interactive work station where you cast spells with your wand to control your tea stand and open your locked puzzle chest, which contains your ingredients.
Tea Brewing: During your time with us you will brew two different types of interactive teas, the first of which focuses on transfiguration and second of which has been designed to encourage experimentation and iteration for finding the perfect blend for your palette. You can expect to be hands-on with your tea and use all of your senses.
Confectionary Delights: Your Wizard Afternoon Tea Experience includes a scone and a carefully curated selection of sandwitches, and desserts. These may be items you've never tried or even heard of before, and we've baked molecular gastronomy into this other-worldy tea experience!
Wizard's Afternoon Tea Tickets include:
- magic wand and equipment rental,
- two interactive teas that you brew,
- scone and a curated selection of sandwitches, and desserts, and
- the 1hr 45min interactive experience.
What else to know?
- Additional drinks (alcoholic and non) can be purchased online before your visit for a discounted rate or while in the venue at full-price.

- Please note that our cakes and desserts routinely change and so might not be the ones you see in the photos!
- Vegan and Gluten-free versions of Wizard Afternoon Tea are available, and must be requested in advance and at the time of booking, as additional preparation is needed.
