My Favourite Tea Recipes for National Tea Day 2018
Take note – National Tea Day is on Saturday 21st April! I’ll actually be out at Nantwich Artisan Market selling my lovely cakes (drinking endless tea to keep warm if the weather is as bad as last time) but you could be celebrating at the Fes-Tea-Val in West London. The Fes-Tea-Val takes place on the 21st and 22nd April at Chiswick Gardens and has lots of activities and things to do for all ages and interests. You can find out more and get your tickets on the National Tea Day website. If you can’t make it to the big par-tea why not try some of my favourite tea recipes as ingredient or take a look at my list of favourite bakes to go with a cuppa.
Cupcake Jemma English Breakfast Tea Cupcakes
You probably know by now that I’m a big fan of cupcake Jemma. She’s one of the people who inspired me to start selling my cakes at markets and I recently visited her shop Crumbs and Doilies in London. I think I’ve probably watched every single one of her YouTube videos over time and this is one of my favourites.
I LOVE iced tea. I spent a little time working in Edinburgh one summer and I basically lived off peach iced tea. Jane from HodgePodgeDays has two flavours for you to choose from – Redbush and Peach or Citrus Redbush and Lemon. Perfect for a hot day when you still need your tea fix.
I have to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of matcha but then again I am a builders tea kinda girl. The flavour of these cookies is just right. Not to strong but it still comes through. They look pretty dainty and would look even more delicate if you iced them (you know, like those amazing biscuit icing videos you see on Facebook that are basically works of art).
I haven’t got a slow cooker myself as I reckon I’ve already got enough kitchen gadgets but recipes like this make me feel like I’m missing out! The idea of being able to mix it all together, putting it in the slow cooker for a couple of hours and coming back to a delicious cake.
Neha’s Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies and infused with strawberry and cream loose leaf tea. It’s brewed into the butter right at the beginning of the recipe. I love the idea of using a flavoured ea this way – it’s something I’d never have thought of!
