Indian Afternoon Tea | Menu Ideas + Recipes
Since I knew we would be serving Tea India‘s new line of individuality wrapped teas which provide the perfect dose of flavor and comfort in every cup, I wanted to created a menu that complimented the two flavors, Assam black and green tea. These teas come individually wrapped, so they were perfect to serve at my afternoon tea where guests had the option to choose between flavors and each cup was as fresh as the first. In addition to the teas, I served a refreshing sparkling water with raspberries.
Keeping true to flavors inspired by India I offered a selection of modern menu items with flairs of traditional flavor. This included savory items such as mango chutney + cheddar tea sandwiches and mini samosas with a mix of desserts including a pistachio rose cake and creamy cardamom custard. Afternoon tea is all about a variety of sweets and treats so I mixed homemade goods with store bought items for a variety of foods and flavors.
Dates and fresh fruit
This variety of snacks and sweets worked wonderfully for tea. The bite size choices left my guests satisfied without feeling overwhelmed with full size samosas or sandwiches. We plated menu items across the table on tiered stands encouraging conversations and engagement. To save these recipes individually right click on the desired recipe and save as.
