What is Afternoon Tea Week & How to Celebrate. 

Afternoon Tea Week was established to help secure a tradition that has graced British afternoons since the 1840’s. In those days, dinner often wasn’t served until 8pm, and lunch wasn’t actually a thing, so what was a hungry person to do? Create a new mini-meal in the middle of the day of course! Traditionally this meal contains tiny finger sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, and sweet dainties like cakes and pastries to help lift the spirits, bolster energy, and see you through the rest of the day.

Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford annoyed by hunger pains caused by only having two meals a day scheduled time to take tea and enjoy a snack in the afternoon.

Celebrating Afternoon Tea Week is simple, for the length of a week make a pause for Afternoon Tea a part of your day. Warm tea, a few sweets, and a small repast will help lift your spirits and drive you through the rest of your day. If you really want to go all out you can organise a tea reception, and even go so far as to wear Victorian Costume to honor the history of this holiday. Even if you just have a cup of tea each day, remember Afternoon Tea Week and take a few breaths to Keep Calm, and Carry On.

    My mam and I love nothing better than a good afternoon tea although we always have to substitute the tea with coffee as we are quite simply coffee and cake addicts!

    There’s something really enticing about miniature food, and that’s why I love afternoon tea – it’s like British Tapas! You can taste a bit of everything :) what a lovely prize!
