National Afternoon Tea Week

We just discovered that it's National Afternoon Tea Week!  Although technically it's afternoon tea week every week at Sweet Remembrances, we're happy to join in the celebration of something so dear to our heart.  An English specialty, this relatively new event originated in 2010.  We're happy to share in the excitement of National Afternoon Tea Week which runs from August 13th thru the 19th this year.  In celebration, Angelica is offering this tiered tray full of afternoon treats, just for you.

The sandwiches include cucumber and dill rounds, domino sandwiches with ham and pepper jack cheese, sliced chicken with basil pesto mayonnaise, and sweet and savory cheddar on pumpernickel.  Scones, of course, fresh from the oven.  And a top tier of assorted little desserts, to include a mini cream pie topped with fresh fruit, lemon triangles, and petite teapot cookies.  So, pour yourself a pot of tea, sit down, relax, and savor this calorie-free specialty tea to celebrate National Afternoon Tea Week!

Thanks for the reminder about National Afternoon Tea week...I'd forgotten in the whirl of prep for guests. Great occasion I can get behind. I'll drink to that...with a cuppa and a a piece of lemon streusel tea bread in the sunroom this afternoon!

Thanks for the informative post. I wasn't aware a National Afternoon Tea Week existed. Love the looks of the tea tray you've prepared! I did my part to celebrate Afternoon Tea Week. I had tea at the Cotswold Cottage at Greenfield Village today. Will be blogging about it soon.
