Cream Tea: Do You Know What It Is?

A cream tea, Devonshire tea or Cornish cream tea is tea taken with a combination of scones, clotted cream (or in some instances whipped cream), and jam. Cream teas are offered for sale in tea rooms throughout Great Britain (especially the South West of England) and rest of the Commonwealth, or wherever someone wants to give an impression of British influence. In North America it is promoted as a typically British afternoon snack.

Green Tea Pound Cake

Green Tea Pound Cake
makes one 9x5 loaf or two mini loaves

2 cups bleached all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons Matcha green tea
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 sticks soft unsalted butter
2 cups confectioners' sugar
5 large eggs, separated
Pinch of salt
1. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan and line with buttered parchment or wax paper—cut to fit.
Set a rack in the middle level of the oven and preheat to 325F.
Combine the flour, green tea and baking powder and stir well to mix.
2. Cream butter and confectioners sugar in bowl of mixer with paddle attachment and beat for about 3 minutes or until light. Beat in the egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping bowl and beater occasionally with a rubber spatula. Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the flour mixture by hand, with a rubber spatula.
3. Pour the egg whites and salt into a clean, dry mixer bowl. Place on mixer with whisk attachment and whip whites on medium speed until white and opaque and just beginning to hold their shape. Increase speed slightly and continue whipping egg whites until they hold a soft peak.
4. Remove bowl from mixer and quickly scrape whites from bowl onto batter in other bowl. Use a large rubber spatula to fold the egg whites into the batter, folding just until no streaks of white remain.
5. Scrape the batter into prepared pans and smooth the top. Bake the cakes for about 45 minutes (35-40 minutes for mini loaf pans) or until it is well risen and a toothpick inserted in the center emerges dry. Cool the cakes in the pans on a rack for 10 minutes, then un-mold and cool it completely.
Green teas contain a high amount of antioxidants, chemical compounds known to forestall aging. Antioxidants are found in many fruits and vegetables – even chocolate. A testing method known as ORAC – short for oxygen radical absorbance capacity, evaluates the antioxidant levels found in food. Matcha green tea is exponentially higher than other foods known for their high antioxidants levels such as blueberries and spinach.
I am booking tea parties now for May-Sept. I'll also create refreshing 'iced-tea parties' too!

Tea Sandwiches

Tea Sandwiches
Bite-sized sandwiches are a distinctive English teatime treat. To make them just right, the bread must be sliced very thin, and the crust removed. Many bakeries can slice bread extra thin on request. If you are slicing the bread yourself, freeze it partially in advance and use a sharp, serrated knife for slicing. To serve, arrange the sandwiches on a bed of crisp iceberg lettuce. The lettuce makes an attractive background and keeps the sandwiches moist. Wrap the serving tray tightly with plastic wrap and refridgerate until ready to serve.


To make the cucumber slices really thin, try using a vegetable peeler


Serves 4 to 8

2 tablespoons butter, softened

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint

8 thin slices white bread, crust removed

2 small cucumbers, peeled and sliced into very thin rounds


In a small bowl, mix together butter and mint until well combined.

Spread a thin layer of butter mixture onto each slice of bread

Arrange cucumber slices on four of the buttered bread slices and top with the other four to make sandwiches

Cut sandwiches into triangles or squares, or try using the teapot cookie and canape cutters for a unique treat



Makes 12 open-faced sandwiches

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

4 ounces cream cheese, room temp

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more for garnish

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro12 thin slices pumpernickel bread

12 thin slices smoked salmon


In food processor, mix together butter, cream cheese, ginger, lime juice and cilantro just until combined.

Transfer to airtight container and refridgerate at least 1 hour to let flavours blend.

Use a large round cookie cutter to cut perfect circles out of each slice of bread

Spread a generous layer of butter mixture on each circle, lay a slice a salmon on top, sprinkle with scallion slices and drizzle with a little lime juice.

Being a Hostess Is As Easy As 1, 2, 3!

Share your excitement!
Invite everyone you know! Over-invite – only 1/3 of those you invite will attend.
Encourage everyone to bring a friend! The more, the merrier; plus, higher attendance often leads to higher rewards
Call and personally invite each guest. A personal invitation is the best way to convey your enthusiasm for the products, and your sincere desire for everyone to join you.
Make your wish list - I want to help you get your favorites for free or at a discount.
1 to 2 days before the show, place a quick friendly reminder call to your guests. Your friends will appreciate that you took the time to help them remember.

Outside Orders and Bookings
Keep one catalogue at home, and carry another with you at all times.
If someone is unable to come, show them the catalogue and offer the opportunity to place an order. If I need to mail a catalogue to an out-of-town guest, please let me know.
If someone is disappointed that they’re unable to attend, encourage them to have a show of their own. That will help you earn addition free products.


Keep it simple – simple snacks are great!
You want your friends and family to know how EASY hosting a Steeped Tea Party is.
