Hosting an afternoon tea during Afternoon Tea Week, from August 12 to August 18, 2024, is a delightful way to celebrate a cherished British tradition that dates back to the 1840s.

The history of afternoon tea can be traced to Anna Maria Russell, the Duchess of Bedford, who introduced the concept to remedy her afternoon hunger pangs due to the late dinner hour. Pairing tea with savory sandwiches and sweet cakes, Russell’s afternoon tea gatherings became popular social events among the upper and middle-upper classes.

Over time, afternoon tea evolved into a beloved tradition, especially after Queen Victoria embraced the custom, elevating it to a social occasion where friends gathered for tea, refreshments, and lively conversations. Today, afternoon tea is enjoyed worldwide, with restaurants and hotels offering special menus and discounts during Afternoon Tea Week.
