I love me a good “Afternoon Tea”
what is High Tea/Afternoon Tea?
It’s a meal eaten in the late afternoon or early evening, typically consisting of a cooked dish, bread, butter, and tea.
May also include vegetables, cheese, pies, muffins and occasionally meat.
Soon it became a popular social event a bridge between meals because many wouldn’t eat their evening meal until maybe 8 pm. As such, it was a ‘mini meal’ in itself.
