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.
