Have you ever been to a tea house and had their little tea sandwiches? I have some super easy Cucumber Tea Sandwiches for your next tea event.
I like to have 3 different sandwiches on a plate when I serve tea or have a get-together with friends. For more ideas visit my full Afternoon Tea Page.
My first is usually a cucumber dill sandwich. I take white bread and cut it in a circle with a cookie cutter. Then I add some butter and softened cream cheese and spread it on the bread. I take thinly sliced cucumbers and place on top and add some fresh dill.
My second sandwich is a Tomato and pesto sandwich. I take mini bread from the bakery section of the store. They usually are in small 2 in squares and I buy rye bread. I make pesto sauce and spread on top. Then slice cherry tomatoes and put them on top with a slice of green olive.
The third is usually a variation of my quiche. I choose different ingredients depending on what I might be serving. I may also add a crust to the quiche depending on how hearty I want the meal.
- White Bread
- English Cucumber
- Fresh Dill
- Fresh Chives (optional)
- Cream Cheese
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
Peel and Slice Cucumber, place on paper towel to drain, Salt and Pepper to Season

Add fresh chopped dill on top of the butter.
Add thinly sliced cucumbers. Enjoy

Yum, I adore cucumber sandwiches! It is one of my favorite things to eat during the summer. Never used dill, though. Will definitely have to try it!
Wow, I haven’t had these in years and of course I am now craving them.

I have never had a cucumber tea sandwich but they all look good! I especially love anything with pesto on it!

I’ve never been to a tea house or a tea party. Definitely something I need to do with my dd8 who I think would enjoy the experience.

I love cucumber sandwiches. These are really cute.
I love tea sandwiches – I’ve never tried pesto in a sandwich before, but it just makes sense!
Thanks for linking up to the Party in the Kids Kitchen – hope to see you this Thursday!

I love tea parties! I’m having one this weekend and will surely serve cucumber sandwiches. I never thought of using cream cheese on a cucumber sandwich. Very pretty presentation.
