The time-honored tradition of “tea time” goes back to nineteenth-century England. Drinking tea began in China thousands of years before that, but the British loved tea so much that they made a meal of it. In late afternoon or early evening, hot tea was served accompanied by some sort of meat dish, bread, and jelly or jam.

We’ve added a little spice to the tea-time tradition. So on a cold, snowy afternoon, warm up the stove, your tummy, and your tune with these spiced treats and drinks.
