My best friend and I decided to have "tea time" for Gossip Girl this week. We made 5 different kinds of tea sandwiches, and I made a Moroccan Mint Chocolate Tea Latte!

Image
I made Cucumber Mint, and Apple, Pear, and Basil Tea Sandwiches.

Image
She made Hummus and Asian Pear, Tomato and "Cheese," and Cucumber and Watercress Tea Sandwiches.

I'm not going to lie, I had originally wanted to pair the apples and pears with hummus and vegan swiss, but ran out of time. I really like basil butter, so it was a quick sub. The inside of the sandwiches were good, but the bread I got absolutely sucked. I had wanted a crusty dark rye or marble rye or pumpernickel, but the only dark bread Whole Foods had was this weird, way too soft bread with whole rye kernels that gave it a weird texture. I ended up using the basil butter as a dip for the apple and pear slices:).

Oh, and as always the recipes are on my blog!:)

The dark bread looks tasty... sorry it didn't have the texture you were looking for. Cute sandwiches!

Looks great! What separates a sammich from a tea sammich? And doesn't Whole Foods totally suck for not having rye? If I want a reuben I have to make two stops: WF for Tempeh and the regular grocery store for rye.

Those look wonderful! I love a good tea sandwich, but it never occurred to me to make veg*n versions.

One recipe I read for tea sandwhiches asked to roll out the bread flat with a rolling pin. Adds a nice texture to the sandwhich.

I love your combinations!

So dainty! Tea sandwiches always remind me of playing with American Girl dolls.

Story of my life!!! I always, always, always have to go to AT LEAST two grocery stores. And I commute via bike, so that can get annoying when it's freezing or raining! Or just in general if your bag is full:)

That's such a good idea! I flattened some of mine with my hand when I got bored of thinly slicing... haha

Yay! I love tea sandwiches, my mom (who is British) used to make them for special occasions.
