Notes

Everyone loves a cup of tea chai, be it hot, warm or cold. What do you serve with your tea? Teas sandwiches are a good side dish that you can prepare. So easy to fix. No cooking time is required.

When choosing bread to use for your tea sandwiches, you must put into consideration the type of sandwich you are making. The moister the filling, the drier the bread should be. A good, thick crust helps, too. To remove crusts from delicate sandwiches, use a serrated knife.

 When filling your sandwich, you should consider its size. Medium sized sandwiches require slightly thicker filling than tiny ones. It is better if you add your filling over the sliced bread after spreading butter or cream cheese. In this way, you will help prevent sogging the slices of bread with the vegetable juices. If the ingredients are high in moisture, like let’s say the cucumbers, you should pack them separately. You only have to add them when you are about to serve your sandwich.

You can as well add color and texture to your sandwich by adding vegetables of different colors. A combination of white and brown bread also works well and makes your sandwich healthier. Remember; brown bread is whole and better than white bread.

Try out different shapes just for the fun of it. Your kids may also help you do it. Combining both and squares shapes works out best. To get tiny tea sandwiches, just need to cut each sandwich into six to eight pieces. To prevent your sandwiches from drying out, cover them using a light tea towel or kitchen towel during the preparation time.

For a tasty sandwich, always use fresh bread and fillings. To keep them fresh for long, put them in an airtight glass or plastic container. Then cover the sandwiches using a layer of wax paper, cover the wax paper with a single layer damp paper towels. Then put on the lid and put it in the refrigerator. The damp paper towel keeps the bread hydrated and also acts as a barrier from the air. You don't want to spoil your lazy afternoon with some dry, flaky sandwiches
