Dining Out Experience: Traditional Afternoon Tea

Some beautiful British traditions are most definitely worth holding onto, and in my opinion, traditional afternoon tea is one of them! Although it may not be appropriate for most of us on a daily basis, it can certainly be enjoyed for special occasions with friends and family when given as an Afternoon Tea Party.

Afternoon tea has been a British institution since Anna Maria Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, asked her footman to bring her a pot of tea and light refreshment one afternoon in 1840. The ritual caught on and afternoon tea became the corner stone of high society dining. These days taking tea as a light afternoon meal has become much more accessible, but has not lost a crumb of its charm.

Over time see invited her friends to the afternoon tea and soon after Queen Victoria began with afternoon tea then it truly became popular. As time went by the price of tea became affordable and then more and more people began to enjoy.

Sometimes we all need a little variety in our diets, and a food and drink experience is the perfect encouragement to try something new, learn to cook your favorite dish or just sample a range of delicious treats.

Consider giving a gift voucher for an afternoon tea event, or enjoy the voucher yourself. Location are all over the UK. A great afternoon tea occasion, enjoy the food.
On arrival you will be greeted by staff who will seat you. Your afternoon tea may vary slightly depending on which location you choose, and in each case you will be treated to a selection of freshly made sandwiches, delicious scones with cream and jam, and, at most locations, either fine pastries or cakes of the day to accompany your tea.
