In today’s times, everyone is so busy in the hustle and bustle of their lives that they forget to connect and have heart-to-heart conversations with their loved ones. This is your sign to take a break and host an event. An evening high tea party is the epitome of a classy gathering where you can raise a toast to invaluable bonds with lavish food. 

If you’re looking for ideas for hosting an elegant party, a high tea would be the right fit for you. But if this is your first time inviting guests over for high tea, you should know that apart from the flavourful tea, you’ll need to make some out-of-the-box to impress your guests. Read on and explore some impeccable snacks that you can make.

Hummus and Pita

Hummus and pita are exemplary tea snacks that you must consider making for your high tea party. You can make this Middle Eastern staple by making hummus from scratch by blending chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, garlic paste, and lemon juice. Once you get a creamy mixture, you can season it with salt, pepper, and a little paprika. Then, pair it with a freshly baked pita bread garnished with a little olive oil and parsley.


Another versatile dish that’ll be perfect for your high tea is quiche. It is a buttery and flaky pastry that has a rich filling. You can start by preparing a pastry crust and then filling it with combinations like ham and cheese. For vegetarian options, you can have a stuffing of mushroom and cheese or a mix of roasted vegetables. You can then bake it and slice it into bite-sized pieces to enjoy with tea.


The Italian pressed sandwich panini is an impeccable snack that has both elegance and flavours to steal the spotlight of your high tea party. To make perfect panini, go for a crusty bread like sourdough. Then, you can pick from a range of fillings like turkey, ham, mozzarella cheese, grilled tomato, roasted vegetables, and so on. Finally, grill the sandwich and cut it into bite-sized pieces to make it easier to handle and serve.

Fruit Tart

No party is complete without having dessert. For an elegant and healthier option for dessert, you can make fruit tarts. You can start by making a chocolate-flavoured batter for the tart. After you get a crispy baked tart, you can spread a layer of whipped cream as a base. Then, arrange assorted fruits like kiwi, strawberries, pineapple, etc. and top it off with some more whipped cream. 

Tiramisu Pudding

Tiramisu is a luxurious Italian dessert that is known for its coffee flavour and a rich layer of ladyfingers. To end your high tea party on a sweet note, you can serve tiramisu pudding. To make the pudding, you can layer ladyfinger cookies as the base. Next, add layers of coffee liqueur, mascarpone cheese, and whipped cream. You can then serve it in pudding bowls with all the layers in each serving.
