My Recent Brew
I had one of my sisters over for tea and she opted for a green/herbal blend and I had Scottish Breakfast. Blends are really nice for a high tea because it rounds out the food options without anything being over or underwhelming. At least, that's my hot take. I made scones wtih devonshire cream and jam, cucmber & dill sandwhiches, ham salad sandwhiches, fresh cherries, and a couple of Needhams. It was a fairly small high tea in the grand scheme, but was a lovely afternoon. The learning points are also valuable. I have a couple of tea pots that can each hold about 4 cups of tea, perfect for a single person. However, if I decide to go bigger for the tea party, I'll definitely need more tea pot options. I also need more tea spoons (not to be confused with teaspoons).
