How Going For Afternoon Tea Improves Your Mental And Physical Health

The moment you are told “afternoon tea” you may think of an afternoon tea with frilly hats more than amusement. But I’m here to tell that it’s absolutely amazing. When I was in London in the year 2019 I was able to go to various teahouses and enjoy tea cake, sandwiches and even petit fours.

For the perfect finishing element to your menu it is essential to have desserts to pair with your tea! Petit Four literally translates to “small oven” as well as the fact the cakes are so small just makes them more adorable. Cake, icing and sprinkles are set to make your tea an entire lot more fun.

Find tea spoons, tea bags and a glass of milk to begin and, when you decide the kinds of items you prefer mixing into your cup, you can add to the mix.

DIY Teapot

If you’re looking for something other than a simple teapot pick a plain teapot and make something with it! Markers, washi tape and Mod Podge as well as tissue papers are an excellent option to create a one of a kind teapot that everybody will appreciate. It also makes an ideal gift for Galentine’s Day 😉

Victorian London Fog

This black tea contains the flavors of citrus, vanilla and lavender to create an elegant flavor that’s similar to London.
