High tea or afternoon tea has a long rich history. It’s a custom that stretches back to the late 1800s. The most enduring tale of how it all began is the tale of the seventh Duchess of Bedford, Anna Maria Stanhope.
Lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria, she complained of ‘having that sinking feeling’ during the late afternoon. In those days, it’s said it was customary to only eat two meals a day: breakfast and dinner. So, the sweet-toothed Duchess would tackle the ‘sinking feeling’ with a pot of tea and something to nibble on in her boudoir.
Too good not to share, soon all the ladies of the day took up this new pastime in opulent drawing rooms and grand outdoor picnics all over Great Britain.
Tip: combine a trip to Fresh Wellness or Hair by Elouise for a glamorous day out.
