More About Afternoon Tea

The British tradition of afternoon tea has a fascinating history that dates back to the early 1840s. It is believed that the credit for popularising afternoon tea goes to Anna, the Duchess of Bedford, who was a close friend of Queen Victoria. During that era, it was customary for people to have only two main meals a day: breakfast in the morning and a late dinner in the evening. As the hours between lunch and dinner grew longer, the duchess started experiencing a "sinking feeling" during the late afternoon. To curb her hunger, she began requesting a tray of tea, sandwiches, and cakes to be served in her private quarters.The duchess found the afternoon refreshments so enjoyable that she soon started inviting friends to join her for this mid-afternoon meal. This delightful practice quickly gained popularity among the aristocracy and eventually spread to the wider society.It is now a staple of fashionable London hotels and typically consists of a selection of finger sandwiches with various fillings, scones with clotted cream and jam, and an assortment of pastries, cakes, and biscuits.
