Iconically British

Afternoon tea originated as a casual indulgence – a way to stave off hunger between the limited meal options of breakfast and dinner in 1840s England. When the Duchess of Bedford found herself battling hunger, ordering tea, cake, and bread and butter to her chambers was her way of compensating.

Eventually, she began inviting friends to join her for this midday snack, and its popularity quickly caught the attention of Queen Victoria and spread through aristocratic circles.
