Afternoon Tea History
Afternoon tea has its origins in 19th century England. The seventh Duchess of Bedford, Anna, pioneered the idea of afternoon tea in 1840. She would become hungry around 4 o’clock in the evening, but her dinner wouldn’t be served until 8 o’clock leaving a massive gap in her day when she would be hungry.
What did she do? Well she would have a tray of tea, bread, butter and cake. After a little while she then started inviting people over to share the meal with her. Thus afternoon was born. It boomed in popularity in the 1880s. It became a more common event among the upper class. Women would meet in their drawing rooms in the afternoon.
Traditional afternoon tea sandwiches are little finger sandwiches, scones, cream, jams, cakes and of course tea.
This 19th century afternoon tea is probably a little bit different to our afternoon tea these days, but the essence is the same.
Yes, you do need to book for out afternoon tea. A minimum of 48 hours notice is required for our afternoon tea.
