The English have a saying, “Half past three, everything stops for tea”. Served between 3:30 and 5pm, the English afternoon tea includes small sandwiches, cakes, pastries, scones, bread, jam, and tea. The people in England started drinking tea in the 17th century, but it was Anna, the Duchess of Bedford, who started the afternoon tea tradition. She would get hungry around 4pm and ask for sandwiches and tea. These days, afternoon tea has become a special occasion for meeting with friends and celebrating life’s special events. It is also now served on fancytiered stands.
It was started by the Duchess of Bedford, Anna. After an early lunch, she would always get hungry at around 4pm. She would ask for tea and sandwiches in the afternoon, because dinner was served very late in 19th century England. Eventually, she started asking her friends to join her. Once Queen Victoria started to participate in them, afternoon tea became a popular tradition.
