What Are High Tea Parties

High tea parties are wrongly considered as the afternoon tea parties, but really speaking, high tea indicates the heavy meal to be taken in the evening which generally used to be enjoyed at approximately six in the evening when laborers arrived home from workplaces, like mines. It contained of meat , potatoes and other dishes besides tea. But high tea did not remain the meal of working class people exclusively and extended to the social groups and high tea parties began to take place.

Afternoon tea or low tea is had on low-height tables kept on a side of or before sofas or chairs, usually in the sitting room. Mostly this is of 3 sorts.

Timing of this type of tea is generally 4 to 5 pm. Nowadays in hotels this custom has been amended with regard to time and also the foods served. This sort of tea is served at three to five in the evening and the delicacies made up of mostly 3 courses, first of savories, 2nd of scones and third of pastries. Savories contain starters in form of tiny sandwiches together with appetizers. Scones are provided along with jam and cream, normally clotted also known as Devonshire cream. Pastries contain cakes, cookies, sweets and shortbreads.

If you desire to organize high tea party at home or in hotel, only to meet your old friends and have fun with them, you are free to select any of the dishes and time. But if the event is more formal, you should be somewhat more careful regarding time, setting, environment and delicacies. You should choose to hold the party in a portion of the home which is slightly isolated from the rest part, whereby you will be able to have time to chat intensely with your invitees. Creation of environment is important as your invitees should feel easy and pleasing. Flowers are excellent for creating a lovely atmosphere. Display your most elegant doilies, tablecloths, napkins and cutlery to adorn the central and side tables. Select music carefully, particularly light and in low tone. To make it short, the music should be such as to bring out the discussion. Other most significant elements of a peaceful ambiance are restful chairs, which need to be as many as your number of guests, together with you as well as your co-host.

The most important element of your high tea party is tea itself. Choose as many types as you can and permit your invitees to choose. Next, for a true tea party, you will necessitate a tea infuser for each of your visitors. This is a miniature ball of steel or silver and possesses several small pores. It appears like spoons having encasement. You can pack tea powder inside the encasement and keep the infuser on the cup of every guest for brewing.

The foods to be given out along with tea have to be light as well as small-sized, mostly to be able to hold in between fingers and thumb. Normally cold dishes are served, barring some single small hot dish. The recipes which you can make for high tea party are many, for example chicken and/or ham, salads, fresh fruits, and all types of sweet preparations, for example cakes, cream puffs, custards, etc.

When your visitors appear, they must feel cozy and afterwards you can begin many activities e.g. reading poems, losing in the past days, playing games or just chatting and enjoy the company of long-lost friends.
