Having grown up for several years on the Island of Malta in the Mediterranean, I had a lot of British friends. In fact, I actually attended a British Military school where I learned the proper way to do many things. One of my favorite memories of those years was having High Tea.
High Tea was so proper and elegant. And those adorable little finger sandwiches and scones with clotted cream were a delight beyond what I could imagine. The other thing I learned to love was hot tea; served with sugar and cream, of course. In fact, I was an avid hot tea drinker for many years. Now, I’m all about the American way and drink coffee every day. But I do yearn for those High Tea memories.
I’ve loved tea pots for as long as I can remember, but recently stated to add tea cups and saucers to my assortment. My collection is starting to build and I keep warning my family and friends they will soon be invited to a proper High Tea at our house. But for now I have started using my tea cups as serving dishes for dainty little desserts like this Strawberry Mousse. It’s light and airy and it tastes like it should be served with High Tea.
