The custom of serving Afternoon Tea is attributed to Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford (1788-1861)
Afternoon Tea is a long held tradition in most Western countries.
Anna, was said to have began taking a light snack in her room in the afternoon. She complained of a “sinking feeling” between the breakfast meal served early in the morning and the evening dinner served around 8:00pm. Anna requested small cakes, bread and butter, sweets and tea be sent to her room in the late afternoon. She began inviting friends to her afternoon ritual and soon “Afternoon Tea” was quite fashionable in English society. Eventually, all of England and neighboring countries were enjoying the mid-day break.
Many confuse High Tea with Afternoon Tea. High Tea sounds very fancy and fussy, but it is actually the dinner tea the working class of Britain enjoyed in the 19th Century. That meal was served on a high table and eventually became known as “High Tea”
At Uniquely Yours, we serve traditional Afternoon Tea in a relaxed and whimsical atmosphere for parties of two, ten, or more.
Our tea towers are filled with tea sandwiches and bite-sized savories, scones and petite sweets inspired by Anna herself. Just be sure and ask us about ROYAL-TEA....
