How To Throw A Tea Party

Certified Tea Sommelier Linda Gaylard of The Tea Stylist, demonstrates how to throw a Tea Party.  Traditionally known as Afternoon Tea, some elements are necessary for a traditional Afternoon Tea such as savouries, sweets,  scones with jam and cream…and tea of course!  You can use many different types of tea for your Tea Party, however a black tea generally goes quite well and it is more common to add milk and sugar to a black tea.  Another emerging trend is to follow up your tea with Prosecco.  An Afternoon Tea can make for a lovely party, where you can bring out your best china and tea set and make your friends feel special and cherished.
