CUCUMBER TEA TIME SANDWICH

Drinking tea is a custom in England,They didn't finish there tea time with just a cuppa. There has to be something with tea like biscuts, crumpets, scones, sandwiches, buns. Afternoon tea is a light meal generaly eaten in between 3-5pm and traditionaly tea is served with sugar and milk.Afternoon tea is first served with sandwiches then cake and scone or buns.cucumber sandwiches are most often served for afternoon tea in Britan as a finger food.So the simple cucumber sandwiches are originated from British. To days my recipe for British is Cucumber tea time sandwich.
