A Guide to Hosting an Afternoon Tea Party with Ceylon Teas

For centuries, afternoon tea parties have been a staple of British culture. Whether you’re treating yourself or gathering friends and family, hosting a proper afternoon tea party can be both enjoyable and rewarding. Here's a guide on how to host a successful afternoon tea party with Ceylon Teas as the star of the show.

Setting the Scene

First things first, you'll want to set the scene for your afternoon tea party. Depending on your taste and style, this could include anything from candles and string lights to bright colours and floral arrangements. You may also choose to create a theme such as “Alice in Wonderland” or “A Garden Party”—the possibilities are endless! Be sure to set aside enough space for everyone who will be attending your tea party; it is best to err on the side of caution and have more than enough seating rather than not enough.

Selecting Your Teas

Once you've finished setting up, it's time to select your teas! Ceylon Teas are perfect for any occasion, but especially for an afternoon tea party. Their range of flavoured black teas offer something for everyone. Don't forget that tea blends can also be enjoyed hot or cold—so no matter what the weather is like outside, you'll always have something delicious to sip on. Don't forget about traditional accompaniments such as sugar cubes and honey!

Food Options

No matter what type of food options you decide upon for your afternoon tea party, there’s one thing that remains constant—it needs to be finger food! Finger sandwiches are a must-have at any afternoon tea party; they can range from classic cucumber sandwiches all the way up to smoked salmon and cream cheese. You could also offer traditional scones with clotted cream and jam or even bite-sized pastries such as macarons or cupcakes. Be sure that whatever you choose is easy to eat while standing so that your guests don't miss out on any conversation while enjoying their food!

Hosting an afternoon tea party can be both enjoyable and rewarding if done right—and with Ceylon Teas leading the way it is easy! From selecting your teas to setting up the room just right, following these steps should help ensure that your event is nothing short of spectacular. So gather your friends (or just treat yourself!), put together some tasty treats (finger sandwiches anyone?), pick out some amazing teas from Ceylon Teas , kick back with some good conversation—and enjoy a proper British Afternoon Tea Party!
