There is something so sophisticated about the tea sandwich! It reminds me of a British tea party or something as regal as that. One tea sandwich I absolutely love is this Cucumber Cream Cheese Tea Sandwich.
This tea sandwich is fresh, creamy and is perfect for an afternoon tea party, a girls luncheon or even a road trip!
I usually don’t eat white bread but white bread is perfect for this type of sandwich. The first thing I did was cut off the crusts.
Then spread plain softened cream cheese on each slice of the sandwich. This makes a sandwich within a sandwich.
The mint is what makes this sandwich so fresh. I just layered the mint over the cream cheese on only one slice.
Next is a layer of cucumber. The cucumber needs to be sliced extremely thin. The best part about a tea sandwich is how thin it is. So make sure your cucumber is sliced thin.
Then cut your tea sandwich in whatever shape you like. I like the narrow slices that make a great bite size.
Of course, a tea sandwich doesn’t need to be served with tea. This makes a great appetizer for a picnic, dinner party, or even a wine tasting.
