It’s hard to find calm and relaxation in the busy world we live in today. Why not celebrate life with the ultimate indulgence and… throw a tea party! Afternoon tea is a fabulous way to pamper yourself, family and friends. It breaks up the day and staves those midday hunger cravings indulging in some good old-fashioned conversation.
Introduced in the 1840s Britain, afternoon tea, was a tea related ritual which transformed into a hunger staving mini meal. Started by the 7th duchess of Bedford who complained of being hungry 4 hours before dinner time. Her solution came from snacking on a light meal with a pot of tea. This snack evolved into a private social event but didn’t become a large scale formal occasion until Queen Victoria took part, dubbing it ‘tea reception’. Nowadays, afternoon tea is enjoyed during a special event.
