What is Afternoon Tea?
dutchess anna of bedford Afternoon Tea is a tea-related ritual, introduced in Britain in the early 1840s by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford. Afternoon Tea was initially developed as a private social event for ladies who climbed the echelons of society. It was only when Queen Victoria engaged in the Afternoon Tea ritual that it became a formal occasion on a larger scale, known as 'tea receptions'.  Before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.

"At half past three, everything stops for tea".
