Afternoon Tea Week
Afternoon Tea Week
It's the biggest celebration of British style, elegance and tradition. Afternoon Tea Week is here and you won't want to miss out! Invented by the seventh Duchess of Bedford in the year of 1840, afternoon tea began as a small afternoon snack accompanied by a cup of tea. It's now a deeply embedded British custom, so it's only right to celebrate with a week-long party! What's not to love about celebrating finger sandwiches, delicious cakes, endless cups of tea and the occasional glass of Champagne? There has never been a better time to make a big song and dance about mid-afternoon refreshments, so join in the festivities this week and sit down to an exceptional tea-time treat.
