Afternoon tea

Afternoon tea is deeply embedded in Britain’s history. It is an English ritual that was introduced in the early 1840s, and is traditionally a meal composed of sandwiches (usually cut delicately into “fingers”) scones with cream and jam; sweet pastries, cakes and of course, delicious tea!

As the name suggests, it takes place during the afternoon (often between 4pm and 7pm) and has a formal touch. One of the clichés of English culture is indeed the infamous afternoon tea, therefore it is a must to experience!
