It’s tea time again at the Victorianachronists! Last weekend, we had a Black and White tea party. It seemed appropriate for a post-New-Years, winter party. Here’s what was on our menu:
Dark and White Chocolate Chip Scones
Black and White Sandwiches – Pumpernickel & Cucumber + White Bread & Tuna Salad
Crackers and Blue Cheese
White Chocolate Oreo Truffles
Heather hosted and set these lovely place settings as well as making some freaking delicious scones with our favorite, go-to scone recipe.
Our buddy Jennn supplied the delicious black and white sandwiches. I ate about a thousand. Her recipe came from allrecipes.com, and she suggests you use a mandolin slicer for the cukes. STRONGLY suggests.
Lastly, we had white chocolate Oreo truffles. I had these at a friend’s place over Christmas, and they were so good that I wanted to make a batch myself. I’ve seen recipes for these all over Pinterest and they are all pretty much the same. Here’s the one I used. These are pretty easy and really delicious.
We drank an Earl Grey Rooibos blend that Jennn brought back from Deutschland for our first pot, and then we had a silver needle Jasmine from Heather’s favorite place, Bea’s of Bloomsbury in London. An excellent, cozy repast on a chilly, rainy winter day.
