Classic English Tea Party Sandwich Recipes

How to Throw an English Tea Party:

  • Start with the table and arrange a nice tablecloth to set the tone for your food (Gingham is popular in London).
  • Place your finger foods on a cake stand in the center of the table. Popular finger foods include scones, tarts and tea sandwiches.
  • When making the tea sandwich, think dainty. It's important start with a good base, we like a healthful wholegrain break like Arnold/Brownberry/Oroweat. 
  • Don't forget the scones.

English Tea Sandwich Recipes

The perfect tea sandwich is light while also being savory. The traditional recipe calls for a light layer of condiment, a preferred sandwich meat, and a thin slice of cucumber or watercress. And of course you need to trim the crusts and cut into quarters.
