Spring has finally made its way to the British shores and what perfect way to throw English afternoon tea party with my friends. The history of afternoon tea dates back in 1662. The menu for afternoon/high tea developed much later on over the years.
The tea party was filled with egg, bacon, salmon cream cheese, and ham and cheese baguettes. We couldn’t have an afternoon tea without the scones, clotted cream and jam. Waitrose was our supplier for cupcakes, lemon sponge cake and Turkish baklava. Also since it’s World Baking Day today, why not go onto their website for some inspiration. Twinnings also have some afternoon tea recipes online.
The twinnings afternoon tea caddies comes in a special edition with 3 flavours to choose from “earl grey” the fragrant black tea, “English breakfast” and “peppermint”. They can be purchase online for £5 each.
