Tea Sandwiches: English Tradition

150-year old English tradition, afternoon tea is synonymous with England. What better way to complement your tea than with tea sandwiches. Tea sandwiches are a delicious snack that can be filled with all sorts of things – fresh veggies to fruit jams to fancy cheeses! No matter what you fill them with, these finger foods are always light and dainty and they won’t fill you up too much for dinner. Want more English culture, check out our London, England trip here.
