High Tea or Afternoon Tea

High Tea or Afternoon Tea

When I was a child, mom always used to have tea for us after coming home from school. It never was like you see in the tea houses, but I sure do like to drink tea with some cookies ;). Some years ago when we were stationed in Germany I fell in love with the tea set of Villeroy and Boch,Petite fleur. I still use this set today. I am not the only who likes tea parties, so do my g-babies. I looked around in my area  it’s quite expensive. The Peabody charges you for Duckie Tea $30 for children 12 & under. Chez Philippe Tea $45 three courses with choice of tea. The Peabody Tea $55 three courses with choice of tea & a glass of champagne. So I figured it can’t be that hard to do this myself. Below you will see some recipes that I have found on the internet and made modifications to the recipes to my liking.

I always been confused if it is High Tea or Afternoon Tea. This site Tea Time pretty much explained it to me, the also have delicious recipes.

A High Tea, includes much more, such as meat, fish, and egg dishes, as well as breads and desserts, and is offered in the early evening. Think of it as a light supper served with tea.

Afternoon tea, is most often taken at a low table, like a coffee table in the sitting room before a warm fire. High tea gets its name from its tendency to be served at a high table, like a dining table or high counter, at the end of the workday. Whether you choose to serve a more luxurious tea or plan a heartier meal, both are lovely ways to savor teatime and to entertain your guests.
