It's been a while since I put together an afternoon tea.  I decided to invite my friend and neighbor Judith, who gave me two lovely sets of tea plate and cup, to join me for tea today. 

Even though I work closely with the St. James Tearoom, I'd forgotten just how labor intensive it is to make a full tea by hand.  I started cooking two days ago.  Finished as my guest was arriving.  We had a lovely, leisurely chat.  Here's the menu (served with Lemon Myrtle Herbal Tea, as Judith doesn't drink black tea):

SAVORIES
Cucumber Sandwiches
Deviled Eggs
Chicken Salad Sandwiches with Thyme and Sage Blossoms
Stuffed Mushrooms

BREADS
Cream Scones with clotted cream, lemon curd, and brandy butter
Lemon Poppyseed Cake
 
SWEETS
Lavender Shortbread
Brownies topped with Ganache and Fresh Raspberries
Fresh Blueberries in Lemon Whipped Cream
