Afternoon tea is one of the most quintessential British customs still enjoyed today, and it dates back to the mid-18th Century.

It was introduced by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in 1840; after finding that she would become hungry between lunch and dinner, which was served fashionably late at 8pm.

Thus, the idea for afternoon tea was born, and it quickly became a fashionable social event that society, and upper-class, women would dress up for.

Today, afternoon tea is still enjoyed across Britain, with plenty of establishments offering their unique own take on the custom, and swapping tea for sparkling wines such as champagne and prosecco.
