My Love for tea started when I was a young girl and I thought every proper young lady should drink tea in a tea cup with a beautiful teapot and what goes better with tea than Tea cakes!
My favorite tea when I was a little girl was peppermint and I would insist only peppermint! I would stay up late at night and read my romantic mystery books while sipping my favorite peppermint tea. My Tea palette has grown since then and I now embrace all types of tea, From black, green, red, to white tea.
And now I even have a etsy site where I sale my hand blended tea’s
I also have quite the obsession with tea parties I find the act of drinking tea and attending tea parties to be elegant and lady like in a fun and delicious way that appeals to my inner Elizabeth Bennet or Emma Woodhouse and I’ve had the pleasure of catering a few tea parties myself including a Christmas tea party just this last year.
These adorable little tea cakes are my paleo version of a Victorian sponge cake which is traditionally served at an afternoon tea party.
The duchess of bedford is credited with turning afternoon tea in England into a late-afternoon meal.
Traditionally loose leaf tea was served with milk and sugar.
Sandwiches, scones, and sweets such as tea cakes where served to accompany the tea.
These paleo tea cakes are perfect for a birthday party or for afternoon tea with the girls.
They are moist! sponge cake made with coconut flour, a strawberry coconut cream icing and topped with a fresh strawberry for garnish.
These perfect little cake bites go absolutely marvelous with orange blossom white tea.
