With the entire world celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday, I thought I would share with you this delightful tea, developed by TeaTime magazine. It is truly fit for royalty, whether the queen of England or a special lady in your life. Enjoy!
From TeaTime March/April 2016
Although the birthday of the British monarch, whoever he or she may be, is traditionally celebrated in June, Queen Elizabeth II was actually born on April 21, 1926. Join us as we celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday with an elegant British tea fit for a queen.
A trio of pretty tea sandwiches—Coronation Chicken Salad Sandwiches, Watercress and Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches, and Dilled Salmon Mousse Canapés—gets our Tea Fit for a Queen off to a delicious start. Pair them with Keemun Hao Ya A Tea from Capital Teas. (The accent plate is Royal Crown Derby’s Pemberley pattern.)
Delightful and old-fashioned desserts, such as Strawberry-Lemon Battenberg Cake, Lemon Linzer Cookies with Ginger Preserves, and Mini Cherry Bakewell Tartlets, are the perfect finish to our Fit for a Queen Tea. Capital Teas’ Darjeeling Margaret’s Hope 2nd Flush is the perfect tea pairing.
