Its Afternoon Tea Week so come and celebrate with us!
If dinner is too far away and lunch has passed, but you still feel as if you need a treat for the day, then come and celebrate afternoon Tea Week with us.
Afternoon Tea Week taps into the British Tradition of afternoon tea to help bring a bit of elegance to anytime of the day.
How did Tea Week start?
Afternoon Tea Week was established to help secure a tradition that has graced British afternoons since the 1840’s and invented in Bedfordshire. In those days, dinner often wasn’t served until 8pm, and lunch wasn’t actually a thing. Traditionally this meal contains tiny finger sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, and sweet dainties like cakes and pastries to help lift the spirits, bolster energy, and see you through the rest of the day. We even have a gents version!
