How to Have the Perfect High Tea (Feat. Our Favorite Brands)
How to host the perfect high tea
Tea parties aren’t just for little girls anymore. With a revived interest in Regency-era living (thank you, Bridgerton!), we have the chance to revisit some things from that time period that made life special. And High Tea is one of them.
In England, High Tea didn’t just mean gathering around a pot of tea. They also featured a variety of dishes. The fun part is that the High Tea wasn’t supposed to be a meal. It was just a chance to gather with friends, chat, and perhaps best of all, snack!
If you’re looking to put together a little High Tea of your own, we have a full spread of recommendations for you. Here are some of our favorite High Tea options featuring brands with clean, healthy ingredients.
Art of Tea Caffeine-Free Velvet Tea
Because High Tea was historically celebrated at 4 p.m., you don’t want to serve a tea that’s going to keep everyone up all night. That’s why we love the Herbal Velvet Tea from the Art of Tea. It’s 100% caffeine-free, but it’s still packed with flavor.
Art of Tea’s Velvet Tea is crafted with a blend of rooibos and organic honeybush tea, plus organic mint, cacao nibs, and apple for an added boost of flavor. This cup of tea is perfect to sip on with Dark Chocolate and other High Tea snacks.
Wedderspoon Manuka Honey
While we think that tea is delicious on its own, a little drop of honey can take things to the next level.
Wedderspoon’s Manuka Honey gives you that sweetness for your cup of tea, plus more health benefits than the average honey. Manuka honey comes from bees pollinating the Manuka plant in New Zealand. Pollinating this way makes their honey more potent.
Wedderspoon’s Manuka Honey comes packed with living enzymes and chemical compounds that support your wellness. Manuka honey can do everything from providing an energy boost to soothing an upset stomach.
On top of all of this, their raw honey gets rigorously tested to meet monofloral Manuka honey standards set by the New Zealand government. Long story short: this is the good stuff.
Soozy's Grain-Free Cookies
High Tea wouldn’t be complete without some treats to snack on. While traditional tea parties turned to baked goods and finger sandwiches, you can still have the taste of a baked good without all of the added sugar.
Fortunately, Soozy’s comes through with their High Tea-perfect Grain-Free cookies. Each box comes with just 4 grams of sugar per cookie, plus they’re gluten-free, vegan, grain-free, and non-GMO.
Jane Austen may have said that happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance, but we think she’d agree with us that happiness in chocolate isn’t. If you’re looking to make your High Tea feel indulgent without loads of sugar, you know we’ve got you covered.
Our Raspberry Dream bars have less than 1 gram of sugar per bar and pair well with a wide variety of teas. Add a few to your High Tea selection to delight your guests and your own taste buds.
Why not wrap up your workday and set out your own High Tea? You deserve it.
