Afternoon Tea Week

Afternoon Tea Week

Afternoon Tea Week taps into the British Tradition of having afternoon tea! Afternoon tea is meant to help bring a bit of elegance to an otherwise unremarkable time of day in the later part of the afternoon. In the 1840s, when the tradition became popular, dinner often wasn’t served until 8pm, so it was a great way to have a sophisticated snack. Traditionally this light meal contains tiny finger sandwiches, as well as scones with jam and clotted cream, there may also be cakes and pastries.
