Additional information

Afternoon tea is the most quintessential of English customs and it was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. The Duchess would become hungry around four o’clock in the afternoon. The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o’clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner. The story goes that the Duchess asked that a tray of tea, bread and butter and cake be brought to her room during the late afternoon. This pause for tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880’s upper-class and society women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea which was usually served in the drawing room between four and five o’clock.

For debate

It is jam first at Buckingham Palace garden parties! Traditionally the Cornish method is to split the scone in two, spread the jam and then add a spoonful of clotted cream.
