The History of High Tea

The idea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. Initially, the Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter (earlier, the Earl of Sandwich had had the idea of putting a filling between two slices of bread) and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. After that, this became a habit of hers and she began inviting friends to join her.

For instance, traditional afternoon tea consists of a selection of dainty sandwiches (including of course thinly sliced cucumber sandwiches), scones served with clotted cream and preserves. Cakes and pastries are also served. Tea grown in India or Ceylon is poured from ornate tea pots into delicate bone china cups.
Above all, we hope you experience the best of this tradition with us today and join us in future events around this most pleasant of institutions.
