Afternoon tea is a cherished tradition in all Indian and South Asian households. It’s a time to relax and take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Whether you’re looking for a quiet moment of self-care or a wholesome time-out with your family, you can count on tea time to give you that much needed break from your busy schedule.
But the best thing about afternoon tea – and I’m sure we can all agree to this – are the sweet and savory snacks that accompany it. If you’re wondering what snacks to munch on, here are some best TAZA bakery items that you can enjoy with your steaming cup of chai!
1. Chocolate Cookies
Experience the chocolatey goodness with TAZA chocolate cookies! Buttery and indulgent, it’s the perfect treat that takes you down memory lane. Every bite gives you a satisfying crunch with a rich, chocolatey center.
Pro tip: Dip your chocolate cookie in a warm cup of chai until the chocolate slightly melts for a gooey, delicious treat!
2. Nan Khataee
A crumbly cookie that’s in a league of its own! Made with a mixture of sweet and savory ingredients including sugar, cardamom, and dried fruits, Nan Khataee is a dessert that’s loved by people of all ages.
Soft and fluffy in the middle, with a crispy exterior, it’s a tasty snack you can enjoy with your tea.
3. Tea Rusk
It’s in the name! A crispy and crunchy biscuit…the perfect partner for your steaming cup of masala chai!
The rusk is hard at first but when dipped in tea, it becomes soft and chewy. What’s more – absorbing the tea gives it a unique flavor profile making it a yummy afternoon snack that’s hard to beat!
4. Bakar Khani
A desi twist on the classic breakfast cereal, Bakar Khani is a traditional puff pastry with a hard crust and a biscuit-like texture.
It tastes remarkably well with tea – just break the Bakar Khani into small pieces and put it in a cup of hot chai. Once it soaks up the tea and becomes soft and chewy, you can eat it with a spoon!
5. Fruit Cake
A festive and colorful snack that’s packed with juicy dried fruits, nuts, and spices. TAZA fruit cake is like a party in your mouth bringing a blend of sweet, tart, and nutty flavors. A delicious tea time snack to chew on!
