This thoroughly British tradition began in the early part of the nineteenth century when Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, had “that sinking feeling” in the middle of the afternoon, she began by taking tea and sandwiches in her boudoir. It wasn’t long, though, before she invited friends around for a tea party and an afternoon stroll, beginning the tradition of Afternoon High Tea as we know it today.
