Afternoon Tea

The History of Afternoon Tea.  – Tea consumption increased dramatically during the early 19th century and it is around this time that Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford, is said to have complained of “Having that sinking feeling” during the late afternoon.  At this time it was usual for people to take only 2 meals a day, breakfast and dinner at around 8 o’clock in the evening.  The solution for the Duchess was a pot of tea and a light snack taken privately in her boudoir during the afternoon.

Later friends were invited to join her in her rooms at Woburn Abbey and this Summer practice proved so popular that the Duchess continued it when she returned to London, sending cards to her friends asking them to join her for “Tea and a walking the fields.”  Other social hostesses quickly picked up on the idea and the practice became respectable enough to move it into the drawing room.  Before long all of fashionable society was sipping tea and nibbling sandwiches in the middle of the afternoon.
