There’s nothing like a tea party where unique quality teas and tasty treats are served. I made these dainty peach afternoon tea meringues for the event. These are made from Swiss meringue, where sugar is dissolved in egg whites over a double boiler. Then, the egg whites and sugar are whipped to stiff peaks. They take on a beautiful glossy finish and remind me of marshmallow fluff. Next, I piped out the meringue with a large french star tip and baked them at a low temperature for a few hours. Once finished, before serving, these can be turned into an elegant dessert by sandwiching two together with a peach slice and Chantilly creme. It’s simple, and yet looks so classy.
If having hot tea on a warm summer day concerns you, iced teas are the answer! Iced lime mojito green tea is my favourite, but iced lychee fruit paradise organic tea is also a good choice. Otherwise, why not have fuzzy peaches black tea to go with your peach afternoon tea meringues?
