This Great British Nation of ours have been enjoying a good old cuppa since King Charlie II introduced tea to Britain in the 1660`s, but the concept of “afternoon tea” did not become a fashionable social event until the mid to late 1800`s when Anna (Duchess of Bedford don`t you know!!) would find herself rather peckish at around 4pm, so would indulge in a spot of cucumber butty munching with her mates (Crustless of course). Hence the quintessentially British custom of afternoon tea was born. Nowadays most of us settle for a mug of builders tea and a choccy digestive..... Where has the tradition of a proper “Afternoon Tea” gone? Well it is right here ready for you to have a slice of it!!
