5 Recipes for a Vegan Afternoon Tea

5 Recipes for a Vegan Afternoon Tea - a round-up by plantpowercouple.com

In this house, we’re tea people. ☕

In fact, afternoon tea has become a kind of tradition for us in the past few years.

When T gets home from work in the late afternoon / early evening, we’ll sit and have a pot with some sweet & savory snacks and talk about our days.

It’s a tradition we both grew up with, thanks to our Irish tea-loving grandmothers, and one we really enjoy to this day.

Now, our typical afternoon tea is probably not what would be considered a proper afternoon tea, but lately, we’ve been having some fun experimenting with more traditional recipes and practices, so we decided to do this little round-up for you of 5 vegan recipes for a proper afternoon tea!

I discovered my love for clotted cream when my Nana started taking me to afternoon tea at a local shop as a kid. Now, our vegan recreation of that classic dish is so spot-on, it totally takes me back to those days!
