The History of Tea
“High Tea” which is a term incorrectly used at most “tea houses” was originally used to describe the evening meal for the common man. Tea was quite expensive at this time due to high taxes and therefore was given in small amounts along with a hearty meal of perhaps ale, bread, and beef for dinner, eaten of course at high tables, hence the term.
“Afternoon Tea” is the term that is thought to have been made popular by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, as she complained of “a sinking feeling” during the late afternoon. It was customary at this time to eat only two main meals a day, breakfast and a late dinner around 8pm. This was served as a snack to hold off hunger and she would take it privately in her Boudoir. It is said she then started inviting friends and diplomatic acquaintances to enjoy tiny savory sandwiches and delectable pastries with her in the parlor seated on the divan and lounge chairs. Before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and sampling sandwiches mid-day.
