Description

The origins of the well-established tradition of afternoon tea appear to lead to the 8th Duchesse of Bedford, who, in or around 1840, started a ritual of having cakes, bread and tea sent to her room around 4pm to ward off hunger pagns. By the late 1800, this ritual grew into to a widely-practised and fashionable one for women who, changing into gowns for the occasion, congregated in drawing rooms for private social events and indulged in sweet pastries, miniature sandwiches and tea (usually Darjeeling).

Afternoon tea is usually served in three courses on a three-tiered stand. The finger sandwiches comprise the first course and are placed on the bottom tier of the stand. The second tier usually consists of scones, jam and clotted cream. Bite-size pastries are tea cakes are the third course and are placed on the top tier of the stand.

A wide-variety of loose-leaf teas can be serve- Darjeeling, which is  the versatile tea most associated with Afternoon Tea. This is something we can provide as an add on to your order.

Ideas for finger sandwiches:

 Smoked salmon, horseradish sauce, juniper on rye bread
 Roasted chicken, tarragon mayonaise, little gem lettuce leaves
 Cucumber, lemon-flavoured cream-cheese, watercress on white bread
 Egg mayonnaise, mustard cress, shallot on white bread

The depth of the filling should be similar to the thickness of the bread
