Did you know the story ?
One of the oldest English customs, Afternoon Tea was introduced in England in 1840 by a close friend of Queen Victoria, the seventh Duchess of Bedford.
Let's get into the story, the Duchess would have asked for a cup of tea, bread, butter and cakes to be brought to her room in the middle of the afternoon in order to appease "that feeling of hunger" that she felt between lunch and dinner.
You know what I mean, don't you?
Becoming a true art of living, she then decided to invite her friends from high society to join her. Naturally, this new custom became a fashionable social event!
