Afternoon Tea at Bizu Patisserie

The tradition of afternoon tea started in the United Kingdom and is also practiced in countries influenced by the British Empire. In movies, observe how relaxing and comforting an afternoon tea could be, not to mention how stylish it seems to layer different types of pastries on a tray and choose the best tea cups and wares for you and your guest.

To recreate a relaxing afternoon tea, select an al fresco location - a spot on your garden, terrace, or balcony. Prepare an interesting mix of pastries, scones, jams, chocolates, and sandwiches that are cut into bite sizes. An afternoon tea is meant to pass the time and enjoy a relaxing conversation with your guest. Eat like a queen, alternating bites and sips in moderation. Afternoon tea is best enjoyed between 2PM-5PM, just in between lunch and dinner time. What a relaxing and stylish way to pass the time :)

At the Bizu Patisserie, you and your guest can enjoy a traditional afternoon tea (minus all the preparations). Their afternoon tea spread includes the following:-

Mushroom Duxelle in Vol-au-Vent, Salmon with Dill Pistachio Mousseline on Pâte Brisée, Caramelized Apples with Brie on Croute, Petit Croque Monsieur, Petit Herbed Chicken Feta in Ciabatta.

To clean the palette, sorbets are also included to the afternoon tea.
