Taking afternoon tea is a quintessential British pastime and has been part of the nation’s culture for centuries. The origins of afternoon tea can be traced back to the early 1800s, a period when dinner was taken late in the evening. Anna Russell, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, was annoyed by hunger pains caused by only having two meals during the day. Thus, the Duchess scheduled time to take tea and enjoy a snack in the afternoon that will tide her over to dinner. The Duchess first conducted this as a private ceremony but was eventually joined by her acquaintances, and the practice was perpetuated throughout England. Fast-forward to the present, afternoon tea is still considered a luxurious and favorite past time not only in Europe but across Asia as well.
