Autumn Afternoon Tea Menu – Tea Travels!™
Excerpt from AFTERNOON TEA – TIPS, TERMS and TRADITIONS by Ellen Easton ©2006-2012 – All Rights Reserved
Whether your afternoon tea is prepared from scratch, store bought items, or a combination of the two, the key to any good party is a balanced menu. The occasion need not be an expensive endeavor, provided all items are served fresh and presented in a style pleasing to the eye, your guests are certain to have a great time. Do not be a tea snob, but regardless if the teas served are loose-leaf or from a tea bag, all tea must be decanted before pouring.
