Vintage Tea Recipes in the United States  

I'd like to help nudge along teatime's comeback by offering a selection of old fashioned recipes that are just perfect for afternoon tea.  

Lemon Shortbread We all know and love the delicious and butter shortbread cookie

This particular recipe stands out for the addition of lemon, which gives it a wonderfully bright flavor.

Lavender Shortbread Cookies Another riff on the shortbread theme, these delicately flavored lavender cookies would make a perfect addition to a springtime tea table

Choose a good complementary tea to go with this one, like a nice Earl Grey with bergamot, or a simple chamomile

Chicken Salad Tea Sandwiches These little sandwiches are easy to make, and loaded with a lovely citrus-flavored chicken salad

Blue Cheese and Pear Tea Sandwiches These cute little blue cheese and pear tea sandwiches have just the right balance of sweet and saltiness.
