Growing up I remember my mom brewing a hot cup of tea as soon as she got home from work. She would then proceed to enjoy her cup with some savory murukku before sorting out the dinner dilemma. My dad would often join her, armed with something sweet to enjoy with his cup of tea. Back then in our home, daily afternoon tea was a time to wind down, a time to relax and reconnect for all of us.

As time passed and I went off to college, when I came home to visit, my dad would insist on catching up over “tea for two or three” as he cajoled my mom into making her by then, infamous tea. As he got older and started his battle with heart disease, he would say the same thing when he came home from each stint in the hospital. These days my mom suggests  “tea for two or three” when my daughter and I visit her. So afternoon tea is near and dear to my heart.

As my daughter seems to have inherited my parent’s love of tea, I like to prepare an afternoon tea spread, from time to time. By the way, I think I might have been the only one who thought that afternoon tea and high tea were one and the same. Just today, I learned that afternoon tea consists of snacks and is enjoyed late afternoon/early evening while high tea is tea enjoyed at a meal/light supper a lot later in the evening.

Anyhoot…

Back to our afternoon tea spread…

It has been so cold here in Athens, GA. The perfect weather for hot steaming mugs of tea! Bigelow tea is my #1 choice of tea, I have often use it to make
my version of chai tea with a pinch of cloves, cardamom, and cinnamon.

Today, I choose to “Tea Proudly” with Bigelow’s Constant Comment Tea (purchased from Walmart) for our afternoon tea.

I brewed a couple of cups for my daughter and I, and, we enjoyed those warm cups of tea with some layered cucumber carrot sandwiches and blueberry white chocolate scones.

These Carrot Cucumber Sandwiches are so easy to make! All you need are: a few slices of your favorite loaf of bread, Greek Yogurt, lemon, salt and pepper, 1 carrot and 1 cucumber.

Simply boil or microwave the carrot until it is soft and then mash it up well. Season it with salt and pepper and set it aside. Thinly slice the cucumber and set the slices aside. Then whip up some Greek Yogurt with some salt and pepper and a small squeeze of lemon.

Then, spread some of the Greek Yogurt on a slice, add on a thin layer of the carrots, add on another slice that has been spread with the yogurt mix on both sides, top that with some thinly sliced cucumber, and top that all off with another yogurt spread slices, top that with some thinly sliced cucumber, and top that all off with another yogurt spread slice. and voila, layered carrot cucumber sandwiches!

I'd gladly join you for tea for two or three! It's funny. Tea is rarely on my radar...until I get sick. And then I crave tea like it's nobody's business. Fortunately I'm not sick at the moment, so I think it's time to break out of that routine and brew up some tea. And these scones? I can practically taste them! They look amazing (and delicious), Shashi!

Ah, when my gran was alive we used to enjoy Scottish High Tea on a Sunday afternoon which was tea drinking with scones, sandwiches and cakes. Yum! Your blueberry white chocolate scones would have been absolutely ideal for our High Tea. Double Yum!

Just took them out of the oven and hubby and I had to taste. Wow, great and soo easy. The only thing that I did different was to eliminate the white chocolate only because I didn't want the added calories. Otherwise, they are perfect! Next time I will use frozen berries I think it will be easier to mix them in.Thanks for the great recipe!
