Afternoon tea, as a ritual, was introduced to Britain in the early 1840s. It evolved as a “mini-meal” to stem hunger, in anticipation of the later evening meal. Afternoon tea traditionally comprised sandwiches, scones (with clotted cream and jam), sweet pastries and cakes. The practice was initially developed as a private social event for ladies who climbed the echelons of society. Today, Afternoon Tea is usually enjoyed as an occasional treat or to celebrate a special event, therefore enjoying with a glass Champagne is not uncommon for an extra indulgence. The best of the afternoon tea tradition can be sampled with a visit to one of London’s finest hotels – so why not join us at Royal Lancaster London?
