4 Ways to Serve Tea

In the West we adopt tea forever, and depending on how and at what time of day we brew it, it has different names.

4 maneras de tomar el te

By  Laura Imaz 

And yes... It was they who adopted him for themselves and his colonies, and extended their taste to drink it, to all  Europe  and America.

 ELEVENSIS tea : it is a simple tea, with  toast  or  savory bites  , drunk in mid-morning.

 CREAM tea : is a light tea, with  scons  and  cheese  or cream and sweet, served at any time the afternoon.

 LOW tea : it is an elegant and sumptuous tea. Accompanied by lots of  pastry  and salty snacks. It is a social meeting, usually served at low tables for guests to serve something on their plate and circulate around the  room  and talk. Served in the afternoon, early, from 3 to 5 pm.

 HIGH tea : it's more a dinner. Accompanied by a variety of meals, including meats. It is a  family  reunion and sometimes put on the table, large dishes, so everyone comfortably eat on their chairs. Served later, almost night, from 7 to 8 pm.

 Thank you for snooping with me and until the next infusion.
