Pinkies up: According to Pinterest’s “Pinterest Predicts 2022” report, 2022 is — in part — the year of the tea party. Among a diverse cast of other fun food trends, from 3-D cakes to boozy charcuterie boards, tea parties are forecasted to have a moment this year — and are becoming much more than your go-to bridal shower theme. But, aside from the tea cups and finger sandwiches, what does it really take to host an afternoon tea gathering? We’ve curated just the must-haves list.
“Drinking tea isn’t new. But I’m starting to see tea time as a whole mood this year,” food blogger Between Spoonfuls tells Pinterest, which reports a 70 percent increase in the search term “vintage tea party.” “You plan a date around pastel strawberry milk tea or splurge a little more for the teddy bear-shaped glass bottles. It’s about more than just sipping tea now.”
From blooming tea pots and one-of-a-kind tea cup sets to hot tea bombs and rose gold infusers, we’ve gathered everything you could possibly need for your next tea party.
