Afternoon Tea

$8.99

“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”Afternoon Tea, sets the mood for an elegant afternoon tea held in a drawing room or the garden conservatory. Fancy afternoon gowns, flowers, fine china teacups, jewels and ornate hats were very much a part of the ambience and the display of wealth. The tea itself was expensive at the time and only the upper class and aristocracy could afford such displays of affluence. Settle down with a nice 'cuppa' and indulge in the past era of grandiose society.

A little history  

In 1840, Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford found herself hungry during the late afternoon and began to order a light snack to sustain her until the main late evening meal. Not wishing to eat alone she began to invite her friends for a bit of gossip and tea accompanied by a tray of bread, butter and cake. Queen Victoria, a friend, enjoyed the occasion so much that savoury items as well as elaborate treats were added. As the gatherings soon increased in size and popularity, so did the menu now consisting of crustless ribbon sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and sweets of tiny cakes served on a tri-level stand. When the weather allowed the larger gatherings moved outdoors into the gardens of the wealthy high society. Afternoon finery was expected. Society women would change into long gowns, gloves and elaborate hats, men wore coats with tails and breeches.
