Afternoon tea at home!

14 May

Look like a shop^^?

The other day I made afternoon set for branch. I newly bought this lovely two-layer tray and wanted to use it!

Here is the menu;

– Scones (plain & rasin)

– Tea Sable

– Fruits Tarte

– Strawberry rollcake

– Sandwich (Tuna & Egg)

As I wrote in the earlier post, I have been baking scones for quite a while and came up with a good recipe. I’ve tried couple of scones in KL cafes and think that mine is the best so far! I hope to share the recipe with you in my blog later.

By the way, one of the joyful moment of afternoon tea is to try out couple kinds of tea over those petit desserts.

So I prepared 2 kinds of teas;

– Darjeeling 2nd Flush (from Tea Salon G-clef)

– Royal Blend (from Fortnum & Mason)

You can see the color difference from the picture (Left: Royal Blend, Right: Darjeeling). Do you know that the tea color (clear & transparant) is as important as the taste in enjoying the tea? That’s why all the proper tea cups are white color inside. Some of the tea leaves turn into dull and whitish color when being iced, so there are even some tea leaves suited/not suited for the iced tea. I hope to talk about this in another post, too.

Anyway back to afternoon tea, I enjoyed drinking those teas. I generally like Darjeeling on its own, but with scones and other desserts, Royal Blend tea with milk is better!

    That’s a lovely tea arrangement, and it’s interesting to learn the reason why tea cups are white inside. You have a nice blog.:)
