English Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is one of the dining options, dining time is between lunch and dinner, and afternoon tea is not a regular meal. Modern afternoon tea developed from British Victorian English afternoon tea (high tea)

A popular legend holds that in the mid-1840s a woman from the British upper class: the Duchess of Bedford, Anna Russell, was bored in the afternoon, allowing the maid to prepare a small amount of toast, cream and black tea. This simple way of eating quickly became a great way for British aristocrats to spend the afternoon.

The way English people drink afternoon tea is rich, from the elegant tea party to the afternoon tea, which can be called afternoon tea.

The current English afternoon tea is usually held from 3:30 to 4:30. The special black tea for English afternoon tea is Darjeeling black tea from India, Ceylon Highland black tea from Sri Lanka, and Earl Grey tea. In addition, the United Kingdom also has the habit of drinking tea in the afternoon tea.
