A classic Caprese with a drizzle of balsamic creme (balsamic reduction). I picked up all the ingredients at Eataly.

A few notes:
– I cut the focaccia in half, lengthwise since there would have been too much bread if I hadn’t.
– Use smaller tomatoes so they’ll fit nicely on each tea sandwich.
– Instead of whole basil leaves, another option is to chop them into thin slices and sprinkle over tea sandwiches.
– Use a paper towel to get rid of any excess liquid from the buffalo mozzarella.

    I like the sound of balsamic creme. Also, looks like it "sticks" to the tomatoes. This recipe is a must for summer tea.

    Hi notesontea, the creme is way thicker so it does a great job of "sticking" to the tomatoes for sure. You can pick one up from Eataly. Agree, the tea sandwich is perfect for summer tea.
