Teatime Downton Abbey Style

Savories Course

Teatime Downtown Abbey StyleThese Salmon Mousse Tea Sandwiches give a nod to Downton Abbey’s third season, when disgraced maid Ethel makes luncheon for the Countess of Grantham at Crawley House. Pictured with Cucumber Tea Sandwiches. Serve this delightful duo of savories with a pot of Simpson and Vail’s China Keemun Black Tea (nice plain or with milk and sugar, as is the British custom).


  1. Although I have lived in the US for many years I was born in Ireland and grew up in England.
    The usual pattern followed for serving afternoon tea that I have always experienced in the United Kingdom is sandwiches first, then scones, then the cake course.
    I’m not sure why so often in the US the scones are served first.
    Does anyone have any idea how that came to be?
