Christmas Afternoon Tea

Saw this 'Time for tea' article in Ideal Home's 'Complete guide to Christmas' magazine!


A twist on the traditional afternoon tea, this is a great idea for entertaining guests around Christmas (or a nice bit of R&R for yourself)!  Ideal Homes recommend mismatched vintage china and decorations of mistletoe and ivy, with these beautiful photos to illustrate.  Or you might already have some Christmas tableware itching to be used!

I hadn't thought of Christmas Afternoon Tea before and think you could go for one of Twinings Christmas teas, along with your mince pies, Christmas cake or even Stollen!  There's also lots of recipe ideas in this magazine if you're making your own Christmas cakes!

If you decide to have a go, don't forget you can add your experiences to Tea Street blog's facebook page!
