Tea parties are all about being comfortable, so we’ve rounded up a list of delicious, easy-to-make food that will help your guests feel at ease. From savory tea sandwiches to sweet treats, these recipes are sure to please everyone’s palate.

Food For Tea Parties

Dainty and Delicious

As far as daytime food gatherings go, tea parties are by far our favorite. There are mini tea sandwiches to nibble on, bottomless cups of perfectly steeped tea, plus flaky, buttery, fruity baked goods as far as the eye can see. Most of the dishes ubiquitous to tea parties are smaller bite-size treats but make no mistake: they are just, if not more, satisfying. If you’re planning an afternoon tea, you’ll need a few essentials — including these party-perfect recipes. Each one deserves a spot on your table but quite frankly, it just wouldn’t be a tea party without at least one type of finger sandwich. That’s why we’re starting with these delicate bites. With fresh cucumber, radishes and herbs tucked into soft, brioche bread, they’re perfect as a standalone nibble or a palate cleanser in between different bites.

Special Tea Party-Inspired Brew

Because you can’t have a tea party without tea! This special tea blend, infused with fresh herbs and spices, is a step-up from bagged sachets from the grocery store — but comes together as effortlessly as boiling water.

Cherry-Pistachio Tea Cakes

These tea cakes teeter-totter between fruity and toasty but best of all, they come together lickety-split in one bowl. If you only have salted pistachios on hand, dial back the added salt to about ⅛ teaspoon when pulsing it into a finely ground nut flour in the food processor. Keep the stems on the cherries! They make for an instant garnish.

Asparagus Crostini

These crostini (small rounds of toasted bread) are crowned with fresh ricotta, thin sliced asparagus, and have all the wholesome newness you want in a springtime tea party treat.

Glazed Almond Mini Cakes

Many pilgrimages to bakeries across Austria inspired Molly Yeh to dream up these pastel purple cakelets, scented with almonds rather than a rum soak as is traditional in petits fours. Eye candy, sweet and nutty to the tongue, they are the snackable pastry bound to stun at a tea party. Don’t expect to have leftovers.

Fennel and Orange Scones

There’s many things to love about scones, but most of all is their flexibility. You can dial back on the sugar to make room for savory fillings or that sweet potential can be explored, especially if incorporated with orange zest and dotted with strawberry jam.

Orange Tea with Honey

Easily enhance the citrus flavor of the bergamot in your Earl Grey tea by adding orange blossom water and strips of fresh lemon and orange peel after you steep it.

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Tender lemon cake is elevated by sweet lemon cream cheese glaze. By creaming together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, you not only promote leavening (i.e. help cakes rise up) but guarantee that the final baked treat will have a light texture with the smallest, delicate crumb.

Mini Chocolate-Strawberry Cheesecakes

These perfect-for-one cheesecakes will remind you of chocolate-covered strawberries — with the added richness of sweetened cream cheese.

Truffled Deviled Eggs

Anne pulls out all the stops with her deviled eggs, adding chopped black truffle. It’s an expensive ingredient so feel free to skip it — the truffle oil will add enough flavor to make each bite special.
