History of Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea was introduced in England in the 1840s by the Duchess of Bedford, and lifelong friend of Queen Victoria. At the time, people only ate two main meals a day and finding herself peckish in the long gap between breakfast and dinner, the Duchess began inviting her friends to enjoy tea and ‘a light refreshment’ in her rooms at Woburn Abbey. She continued the practice upon returning to London and Afternoon Tea became an increasingly fashionable ritual among the upper classes.
